While at the SEC Women's Basketball Tournament on Friday, SEC Commissioner Greg Sankey voiced his "frustrations" over the public discussions and debate over the College Football Playoff. Per On3:
quote:

“We have a reality for the College Football Playoff that says we need to be in conversations,” Sankey said ahead of Friday’s SEC women’s basketball tournament game between Auburn and LSU. “And it’s been a four-year work project for me that others decided to just put on the shelf for basically two years.

“Part of my frustration is the details that we’re trying to grind through right now, we should’ve been grinding through back in 2022 or 2023, not 2024. But problems yield in effort, that’s a mantra of mine.”

“Myself and my colleagues – when I leave here, I’m going to jump on a phone call yet again. I told our ADs, I quoted Zac Selmon. So when Zac made a football change, in his press conference, he said unless it comes from me, don’t believe it,” Sankey said. “While I appreciate anonymous sources and the unnamed AD in this conference and unnamed AD in that conference, I told our athletics directors [and] our presidents and chancellors, unless it’s coming from me, don’t believe it and I’ll tell you when it’s true.

“It’s a high-level piece of work. … We’ve done something great with the College Football Playoff. We’ve clearly benefitted from them, I think the game has benefitted from the Playoff. There’s a future opportunity to continue to grow and build.”

No byes for top seeds. Getting to play the 'last team in' is enough of a reward for a great season. In football a one game bye is too large of an advantage.
