On the thought of the committee being made up of 10 to 20 people:

“That may be a little to many to make a decision. I wouldn’t recommend that. I’d recommend about five or six. It’d be an odd number in case you have to vote, that’s one thing I’d do. And the second thing is I wouldn’t get too many people involved, because then you’ve got too many people pulling in different directions …

“Is it going to be good? Yeah, it’s going to be good, because it’s going to give two more games (and) something for people to look forward to, because college football’s gotten so big now. I think you’ll see success, and I think three or four years later … I think you’ll see eight teams. They’ll say, ‘Wow, we can have more games and make more money. I’m all for it.’”

On if an eight-team playoff would be more accurate in determining a true national champion:

“Oh, not necessarily. I don’t know if that’s even possible, because of the academic calendar. I’m just saying that what’s happened, if you just look at the history over the last few years of college football, anything that’s made money, they’ve wanted to do more of it. And they’re going to see this is going to make a lot of money.”
