WHAT THEY’RE SAYING
The five coaches in attendance at Big 12 Media Days on Tuesday gave their thoughts on the upcoming College Football Playoff top-25 rankings show on ESPN. Will they tune in each Tuesday as the contenders battle for a spot in the top four?
Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads: “I guarantee it won’t be a show I’ll be tuning in to hear what they have to say. They’ve got a tough job to do, and they have an excellent committee to get that accomplished. I would just like to soon be a part of the conversation to where maybe I do want to tune in. Whether that’s this year or not, I’m not going to spend a lot of time in October losing sleep if I miss it. Maybe I’ll Tivo it, or whatever they call it.”
West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen: “I probably will, just like we kept track of the polls each and every week last year. I think there’s probably another poll out there that probably carries a little bit more weight than the rest of them. Anything that has to do with our profession that potentially impacts where we’re at, I’m probably going to pay attention to it.”
