With no college football authority, SEC looks out for itself

Last Sunday, the SEC announced it will continue to play an eight-game conference schedule in 2016 and beyond. The four-team College Football Playoff launches this year, and schedule strength will be a component considered by the 13-member selection committee. In the absence of a college football commissioner, this group will have the opportunity to influence the game and operate in the best interest of its programs and conference. Maybe it will select a team playing a nine-game league schedule over one playing an eight-game slate, when they appear otherwise evenly measured, for the fourth and final semifinal spot.
