BCS/College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock said invitations to some prospective members have been made, although discussions are ongoing and additional vetting of candidates must be done. The committee will consist of 12-18 members, most likely “on the lower end,” Hancock said, and will determine the four teams for the first Playoff, which will take place after the 2014 season.
“We are making calls to prospective members to gauge their interest,” Hancock said during the conference commissioners’ meeting at Big Ten headquarters. “And those are going very well. We have invited some people to participate. The response has been remarkable. A hundred percent has been excited to get the call, honored to get the call and wants to give something back to the game.”
