Clemson Football: The Perfect College Football Playoff Committee

As we move into a new era of college football, the College Football Playoff committee will have a hard job. Here is my swing at the perfect thirteen people to make these hard decisions.

Sickos Committee

If you aren’t familiar with the Sickos Committee, you can get to know them on their X account.

From there you can go down the rabbit hole and see all the things they get into but the simple explanation is that they are a group of fans who enjoy watching college football. All college football, no matter what level, conference, or organization.

Their Twitter feed is a must-follow on college football Saturdays because there are so many games it is hard to know which ones have the best action, but the Sickos Committee will no doubt tweet out the best highlights from all of them.

As we said earlier, the people tasked with choosing the best teams in college football should canvas the sport and watch as much as possible, and the Sickos are the preeminent experts at that.

Is this a natural fit? No it is the opposite. The Sickos are not fans of the CFP. They have said as much - they couldn't care less about the CFP.

Did they record a show to discuss the CFP Championship Game between Michigan and Washington? No, they recorded a show they day before to discuss South Dakota State's victory over Montana in the FCS Championship game at the FC Dallas soccer stadium in Frisco, Texas.

There is probably little chance we could convince them to be on the CFP committee, but if we want a voice that will stand up for the little guys that are just being overlooked by everyone else, the Sickos are who we need.

It's not about what anyone wants to hear, it's about what they need to hear. As they say in Star Trek:

""There's an old Vulcan proverb... 'Only Nixon could go to China'.""

We will have to adjust committee rules to make this work, as the Sickos are not a singular person. We know of a handful of personalities from their podcasts, but their full crew that covers football every weekend is probably much larger.

Off the top of my head, they would be a committee within a committee. They make their choices, reach their conclusions as they see fit, and then cast a singular vote on the College Football Playoff committee.

I say it can work.
