College Football Playoff selection panel unveiled
Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice, former Nebraska coach Tom Osborne and College Football Hall of Fame quarterback Archie Manning are among the 13 people who will be part of the College Football Playoff selection committee in 2014.
The committee members were officially unveiled Wednesday, though the names had been reported last week by The Associated Press and other media outlets. Earlier this week, Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long was announced as the chairman of the first selection committee for the new postseason system that replaces the Bowl Championship Series next year.
The committee will choose four teams to play in the national semifinals and seed them. The winners of those games, played on a rotating basis at six bowl sites, will meet a week later for the national championship.
Long and BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock, who will assume the same position in the new postseason format, announced the committee members at a news conference at the College Football Playoff offices in Irving, Texas. The panel is made up of current athletic directors, former players and coaches and college administrators, and a former member of the media.
“Our work will be difficult, but rewarding at the same time,” Long said. “We have important judgments to make during that process. We realize we represent all of college football.”
The rest of the members:
. Barry Alvarez, athletic director, Wisconsin.
. Lt. Gen. Mike Gould, former superintendent of the United States Air Force Academy.
. Pat Haden, athletic director, Southern California.
. Tom Jernstedt, former NCAA executive vice president.
. Oliver Luck, athletic director, West Virginia.
. Dan Radakovich, athletic director, Clemson.
. Steve Wieberg, former college football reporter, USA Today.
. Tyrone Willingham, former head coach of Notre Dame, Stanford and Washington.
. Mike Tranghese, former commissioner of the Big East Conference.
