This is going to be a long 4 years for Texas and OU if they cannot find a way out of their contracts. I think the pettiness from the big XII has just started.

And so begins the political aspects of what is going on. For one this is overt politicization of the committee. By saying they can't have the Texas AD on there they are basically saying the process isn't capable of being objective.

The SEC very nearly got outmaneuvered in the creation of the playoff itself. After everyone agreed on the playoff, there was a strong push to make it conference champs only and the SEC barely was able to fight it off. Now they are moving into a period where it could be 3 against 1 or even 4 against one. Things could get tricky.

I don’t see this as petty. Texas is leaving the conference, why should their AD be the voice for the Big XII on the playoff committee?
I agree.

But if that's the game they want to play RIGHT NOW, those schools can give up their games with TX and OU RIGHT NOW, too.

I'm sure both schools can fill a schedule pretty easily.

Well we can look at it this way… it’s the closest Kansas St and the Big 12 - 2 will ever get to the CFP. I wonder if Bob understands he looks like a little girl that didn’t get an invite for the prom in high school.

I could see them getting petty enough to try and throw a wrench in the gears

Hey the Texas guy is probably relieved he doesn't have to be a part of it anymore. Seems like a lot of unnecessary stress. Plus you can't really influence for your own team or conference as they are supposed to recuse themselves if their own entities are being discussed.
