Lott and 5 others Join The CFP Committee:

Former USC star Ronnie Lott, has been appointed to the 13-member CFP Committee.

Lott joins former Arizona Republic sports columnist Paola Boivin, Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione, former coach Ken Hatfield, Georgia Tech athletic director Todd Stansbury and Florida athletic director Scott Stricklin.

Boivin is the second woman to be named to the committee, following the tenure of former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.

The new members will each begin a three-year term this spring, and current committee member Rob Mullens, the athletic director at Oregon, will be the new selection committee chairman.

"These are high integrity people who know and love college football," CFP executive director Bill Hancock said in a statement.

"Each one of them has built a distinguished career based on diligence and doing things the right way. We're delighted that they will be joining the committee."

1.Hancock also said Mullens' term has been extended one more year so he can serve for two seasons as committee chair. His term was set to expire in February 2019.

2.Lott, a 2002 College Football Hall of Fame inductee, helped the Trojans win the national title in 1978, followed by appearances in back-to-back Rose Bowl games. He graduated from USC in 1981, the same year he was chosen in the first round of the NFL draft.

Lott played professional football for 14 seasons before retiring in 1995. He was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2000, Lott is now a businessman in the San Francisco Bay Area.

3.Boivin, an Illinois alumna, spent more than 20 years at The Arizona Republic before she took a job in the sports journalism program at Arizona State University.

4.Hatfield, who was most recently the head coach at Rice (1994-2005), was also the head coach at Air Force (1979-83), Arkansas (1984-89) and Clemson (1990-93).

He finished with a career record of 168-140-4, including four conference championships. He also led his teams to 10 bowl games. The Arkansas graduate was a defensive back on the 1964 national championship team. He's now retired.

5.Stansbury, a 1984 graduate of Georgia Tech who grew up in Canada, played for the Yellow Jackets from 1980 to 1984 as a middle linebacker and on special teams for coach Bill Curry. He was selected in the third round of the CFL draft by the Saskatchewan Roughriders in 1984.

6.Castiglione, who has led the Sooners' athletic department since 1998, has served on the NCAA baseball committee and was the chairman of the men's basketball committee (2015-16). He is a 1979 graduate of Maryland.

Before he became the athletic director at Florida, Stricklin served in the same role for six years at his alma mater, Mississippi State. He has also worked in athletic departments at four other FBS schools: Kentucky (2003-08), Baylor (1999-2003), Tulane (1998) and Auburn (1993-98).

The new committee members will replace those whose terms expired in February:

1.Texas Tech athletic director Kirby Hocutt

2.Clemson athletic director Dan Radakovich

3.former USA Today reporter Steve Wieberg

4.former Arkansas athletic director Jeff Long

5.former coach Tyrone Willingham

6.former NCAA executive Tom Jernstedt

Committee members are chosen from five classifications: former players, former coaches, current athletic directors, administrators and former journalists.

Indiannapolis, IN:

How the New Redshirt Rules Will Impact College Football in 2018 and Beyond!

Gone are the days when college football coaches had to weigh the impact of burning a redshirt late in the season.

The NCAA has passed a rule that will allow players to participate in four games without sacrificing a year of eligibility.

It's a hugely constructive decision for athletes and coaches alike. The effect will be seen immediately during the 2018 season and be apparent in several ways.

The NCAA release spelled out a couple of those benefits, as Miami athletic director and Division I Council chairman Blake James noted.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes,but also their health and well-being," James said.

"Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries."

James continued with the most important point: "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition."

Every year, fans have dreams of seeing their touted prospects on the field. Sometimes, that happens.

This rule doesn't affect a Jacob Eason or Ed Oliver, a Cam Akers or Najee Harris. In the right situation, those talented freshmen are going to play immediately.

This change is primarily about the redshirt-eligible athletes who weren't physically or mentally ready to contribute in early September yet have developed enough to take the field by November.

The secondary advantage is making the decision to burn redshirts late in the season for injury replacements far less challenging.

Understandably, coaches have been hesitant to use a redshirting player in these positions.

Until now, a single snap constituted a full year of eligibility unless an injury caused that player to miss at least 70 percent of his team's games.

At best for both players and coaches that was immensely frustrating.

Football is a violent game. Injuries happen, and fatigue is a factor as the calendar turns.

Depth charts and stamina are never the same in Game 10 as in Game 3, so relying on a freshman for 15 snaps in four late-season contests can provide a much-needed boost.

Given that another season could include 500-plus snaps, though, simple math explains why that has rarely happened in the past.

Thanks to this updated rule, redshirt-eligible players will have a clear reason to compete in practice during the entire season.

As much as we would like to suggest every athlete is motivated by the grind, that's simply not the truth.

Now, players can work toward a goal of seeing the field—even if that's only a few times. And it's especially meaningful for those on bowl-eligible teams.

After all, the value of additional practices prior to a postseason game are already well-documented.

"These 13 or 15 practices can't be bought," Vanderbilt coach Derek Mason said in 2016, per Steve Megargee of the Associated Press (h/t the Spokesman-Review).

"They have to be earned. And with that, it gives you an extra spring ball."

Looking ahead, bowl practices could even propel a player who wasn't ready in November into a contributing spot.

If an upperclassman loses focus before a "meaningless" game, a wide-eyed, energetic redshirt can actually contend for snaps.

Additionally, in the past two seasons, several touted NFL draft prospects have elected to skip non-major bowl games.

Those players, such as Stanford's Christian McCaffrey and LSU's Leonard Fournette, rightfully had an eye on protecting their financial futures.

Even if the four-game rule leads to more of those decisions, redshirt players could help fill the voids.

Besides, the ability to play a promising freshman might increase the level of fan interest beyond non-major bowl games.

Is your favorite team eliminated from the conference race? Is it only Week 9?

Would you rather dig a garden in the desert than watch your school lose another game without offering a glimmer of hope? Fear not—we have a few freshmen for you to watch.

Coaches will have an opportunity to expand their pools of available players during the final month of a frustrating year.

And instead of adjusting to the true speed of the Football Bowl Subdivision the next September, freshmen can discover that difference when results are considerably less effective.

Perhaps that playing time will lead to a reduction in transfers since athletes can have a better vision of how they fit on the roster.

There won't be enough data to test that hypothesis for at least a few years, but it's a foreseeable result.

Overall, other than in specific cases, the aftermath of this rule change should be overwhelmingly positive.

If the main people who see no benefit are standout freshmen who would be on the field anyway, it's safe to say the rule change will be productive for the sport.
