Sorry Big Ten, Pac-12 Fans, There Will Still be a College Football Playoff Without You

NCAA Football: CFP National Championship-Clemson vs Alabama

On the same day that the 2020 preseason college football AP Poll was released, the College Football Playoff also announced its plans for the 2020 season.

The CFB Playoff selection committee rankings will begin weekly Tuesdays on November 17th, with final selection rankings on Sunday, December 20th.

Typically, these rankings have begun around Halloween, but due to the delay in the season, pushing it back to mid-November makes sense on all fronts. In the meantime, despite the fact that the Big Ten Conference and Pac-12 Conference decided to cancel their respective college football seasons (or delay to the spring), the College Football Playoff will still be happening without them.

This is one of those moments that stings for many in the two conferences as I firmly believe that they expected the rest of the Power 5 conferences to follow them and fall in line by cancelling all fall sports. They thought the sports media would carry their water and force those conferences to follow suit.

They didn’t. And here we are. Planning for a college football season without them. This must pain certain fan bases even more

This is one of the many reasons I have little sympathy for the conferences and why I wrote about Big 12 fans finally getting a chance to laugh at the Big Ten and Pac-12.

So once again, if you’re a Big Ten or Pac-12 fan looking for a temporary home in 2020: I wrote about which Big 12 teams fan bases in the Big Ten and Pac-12 should start rooting for since their respective seasons will not be happening.

Embrace it. Because a college football season is going to happen, despite what your leadership insisted to you in recent weeks.
