What was the Mayor of Columbus doing that he could not be there, and had to record his statement?

Comment 28 Jan 2015

Glad he made it to the NFL. He certainly didn't take the straightest path there: Ohio State, Community College, Alabama, FAU, and CFL, before the NFL.

I'm sure the CFP Committee will be happy to listen to ESPN, if they offer more money to change the schedule.

Comment 27 Jan 2015

Davis' recruitment has been odd, from the beginning.

His commitment seemed to catch everyone off guard. He was all Buckeye for the longest time, and then, at the end seems to be flipping to Auburn.

Why not have one playoff game in the afternoon on New Years eve (say, in the same spot as Arizona boise) and the other one on New Years day?

I prefer having both Semifinal games on the same day. It prevents the extra day preparation/rest for one of the teams going to the Final.

Ratings may drop, but the biggest factor is always going to be matchups.  If the games involves schools like Alabama and Ohio State they will get big ratings whether on 12/31 or 1/1.

I can see CFP is in for a pay day. You want us to move this is what it will cost you. Make it rain.

As they should. The schedule for the first 3 years was released over a year ago.  Now, after the first year, ESPN wants to change it.

What is interesting to me is that the schedule for first three years of the College Football Playoff has been known for over a year, but ESPN is acting like they just found out about it.

Comment 26 Jan 2015

Shows the short-sited view of ESPN, that they noticed this well AFTER they signed the contract.

The simplest solution seems to be to play the Semifinal games (Orange and Cotton) on 1/1, and move the Sugar and Fiesta to 12/31, if the CFP is dead set on playing games on 12/31 and 1/1.

Play the Cotton before the Rose Bowl and the Orange after the Rose Bowl  on 1/1.

However, I believe both the Sugar and Rose bowls have contracts that stipulate that their games will be on New Year's Day, unless New Year's Day is on a Sunday, then they will play on 1/2

Weber is being respectful to Harbaugh and the Michigan staff when they contact him, but he is all Buckeye.
