PODCAST #284: The CFP Expansion Show
The Big News
CFP Committee Meets Today
The CFP Management Committee - a.k.a. the 10 conference commissioners plus Notre Dame A.D. Jack Swarbrick - meet today and tomorrow to (hopefully) rubber stamp the 12-team expansion.
If you want to know the real inside story of how we got here, check out Ross Dellenger’s piece on S.I. We talked about it on the pod.

Talked to an AD today who offered some hope that they’ll come to their senses and put playoff quarterfinals on campus. If the big dogs that would be seeded 1-4 get home games, season tickets would get more valuable. (Because you’d have to buy them to get playoff tix.)
We’ll keep you posted.

Shoot this video right into my veins.
TE Alec Holler was told he had earned a scholarship yesterday by coach Gus Malzahn. The celebration was emotional.

Congrats to Alec - Well-earned!

  • 4th in the NL in relief ERA

I don’t know about you, but I think we’re looking at a potential first-ever MLB All-Star Game appearance for a UCF alum.
