Dan Patrick: CFP Committee Missed ‘Monster Game’ With Ohio St vs Michigan

“Maybe I’m being a little too snarky with this,” Dan Patrick added, “but it is a TV show that they’re producing.”

College football voters have long been accused of making decisions based on what is best for television. It has been true ever since there has been a formal national championship game. 2022 is no exception, although according to Dan Patrick, the people making the decisions on the College Football Playoff field should be chided for not considering the TV implications of their matchups.

“It’s a TV show and that’s what I always wonder,” he said Monday on his FOX Sports Radio show. “Ohio State and Michigan, and you had that in the final four? Look, TCU might be a sacrificial lamb, but that’s okay. You would have a monster game with Ohio State and Michigan.”

America has already seen Ohio State play Michigan once this season. It could have been the opinion of the committee that given that the first game was not close, there would not be any excitement for a rematch. However, to Patrick’s point, the first matchup drew 17 million viewers less than two weeks ago.

“Maybe I’m being a little too snarky with this,” Dan Patrick added, “but it is a TV show that they’re producing.”

CBS Sports analyst Rick Neuheisal, who was Patrick’s guest for the segment agreed. He called out the absurdity of CFP Committee Chairman Boo Corrigan saying that the TV implications of potential matchups were never considered when the final poll was put together.

“To say, as Boo Corrigan did to Rece Davis, that that never came up that it would be an Ohio State, Michigan rematch, that no one acknowledged the elephant in the room? That must be a very small room, if no one said it in the room. Because it was said elsewhere, I gaurantee.”

The College Football Playoff saw a re-match just last year when Georgia defeated Alabama in the National Championship Game just over one month after the Crimson Tide defeated the Bulldogs in the SEC Championship Game. The perception among many, though, is that the committee tries to avoid rematches in the semi-final round.

Michigan will play TCU in the Fiesta Bowl this year with Ohio State facing Georgia in the Peach Bowl. Both semi-final games will air on ESPN on New Year’s Eve.

670 The Score morning host Mike Mulligan is being awarded the Father Finnegan Memorial Award from Loyola University Chicago this weekend, and some of his colleagues congratulated him on the air Friday morning.

The award is given “in recognition of outstanding humanitarianism and service to youth through athletics”. Mulligan — a 1984 graduate of Loyola University Chicago — will receive the award Saturday during the Loyola Athletics Hall of Fame ceremony during a game against George Mason.

“Tremendous award,” co-host David Haugh said. “Proud moment for the show. Proud moment for you family.”

“They’re giving me an award for correctly picking the Super Bowl on September 8th,” Mulligan joked.

“That is fantastic,” Laurence Holmes said, while his co-host, Dan Bernstein, continued to say “wow”. “Congratulations. You shouldn’t be embarrassed. You should be proud.”

“I’m being celebrated for being old,” Mully joked.

“That’s not what that award says,” countered Holmes. “It says something completely different.”

The Mully & Haugh host eventually admitted he was appreciative of the award bestowed upon him by his alma mater.

“It’s a good thing. I’m very moved by it. Sister Jean will be there,” Mully said. “She has a book coming out with — I think — Seth Davis.”

“I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

The performance of CBS Sports NFL analyst Tony Romo has been a hot-button topic in sports media circles, especially after a widely-regarded lackluster performance during the AFC Championship Game. Colin Cowherd believes he knows why Romo has regressed.

During an episode of The Colin Cowherd Podcast, the sports radio host claimed golf is the reason behind Romo’s regression.

“Romo wants to be on the Tour. He literally wants to be on the Tour,” Cowherd said. “And what’s the first thing Aaron Rodgers does in the off-season? He goes and golfs, he loves it. Both, by the way, great golfers, especially Romo. But I’ve always felt like Tony Romo is one of those guys — and we all have somebody in our social circle like this — he got the golf bug. He’s had it for 15 years.

“Tony wants to be on the PGA Tour — but he likes the paycheck from CBS.”

Cowherd also added he hasn’t hired potential employees in the past if they told him they loved golf during the interview process, saying he has a theory that as men age they “get addicted to golf”.

“They’re on PGATour.com, they’re putting in the backyard, they’re thinking about it at work, they’re scheduling a trip to Scotland and they lose sight of their other job,” Cowherd said.
