One of the hottest topics in college football continues to surround playoff expansion. Recently the CFP committee and conference leadership spoke publicly about the idea of potential expansion.
SEC commissioner Greg Sankey recently opened up about the idea that we could see expansion in the future, but it appears to be a stalemate.
“We’re not talking about it,” Sankey said via ESPN. Honestly at this point with all the momentum going the way of the SEC, why should they. The conference will add two more power schools to the group and have the first 16-team superconference with the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns.
“I’ve said in July and August and September, we could stay at four,” Sankey said. “If people think that’s posturing, it’s not. We’re going to have a really, really incredible conference when we’re at 16 teams.”
The SEC ideally is in a really good spot to have half of the field in the CFP each and every year. Hard to fathom that Sankey and the SEC would want to move to the 12 or 16-team field at this point. There aren’t any conversations about expansion going on right now but likely could see some movement over the next year.
