In more groundbreaking news:
Source: CFP officials have been informed that the Rose Bowl has signed an agreement that will allow the College Football Playoff to expand to 12 teams in 2024 and 2025.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) December 1, 2022
With the Rose Bowl hosting the semis after the 2023 season and the expanded playoff starting with the 2024 season, the Granddaddy on Jan. 2, 2023 will be the last traditional P12-B10 matchup— Jon Wilner (@wilnerhotline) December 1, 2022
Debate the merits of and weaknesses of that ready.... go.
While it’s a bummer to see the Rose Bowl completely fade away, this is vaguely promising I suppose?
CFP executive director Bill Hancock: "There are no guarantees (to the Rose Bowl) for 2026 and beyond."— Nicole Auerbach (@NicoleAuerbach) December 1, 2022
Says it would be in everyone's best interest for them to host games in their traditional window on New Year's Day, though.
- In actualy dot dots, Mike Vorel looks at how UW being a couple spots below where they arguable should be could impact Rose Bowl selection (if USC wins the Pac-12).
- Christian Caple takes us through the process for Washington’s creative team and their Michael Penix Heisman campaign.
New today: Ep. 30 of Say Who, Say Pod with @dannyoneil and myself. Will Utah’s CFP jump matter? Plus: Kalen DeBoer’s COY candidacy, David Shaw’s resignation and one last Pac-12 pick.— Christian Caple (@ChristianCaple) November 30, 2022
In separate news, UW picks up a PWO receiver from my cousins’ cousins’ alma mater:

Kay we’re not saying but we’re just saying if USC wins, gets sacrificed to the Playoff, and then UW gets to the Rose Bowl, *ahem*:

Also on the note of things that made me chuckle, our boys John and Coach made a funny:
Come on in. We studied the film and have keen insight into why Penix was so untouched last Saturday night. pic.twitter.com/EpTze7Abf7— De UW Dawg Pound (@UWonSBN) December 1, 2022
Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
