On ESPN’s College GameDay this morning, former Georgia defensive stand out and current college football analyst, David Pollack made some interesting comments. It comes on the heels of multiple reports that Condoleeza Rice will be one of the nine members of the College Football Playoff selection committee. The committee hasn’t been officially announced yet, and will be announced on Monday.
That is when Pollack decides to state that women shouldn’t be on the selection committee. In his defense it wasn’t a blunder, he knew the comment was going to be controversial before making the statement. He even segued into it with “now I’m going to stick my foot in my mouth.”
He didn’t actually say no women should be on the committee. Host Chris Fowler summarized his statements with Pollack’s comments, “so, no woman belongs on the selection committee.”
Pollack kind of shrugs and responds with “you said that.”
His argument is based on the criteria that the selection committee should be comprised of people with extensive football knowledge who “can watch tape, that played football, that are around football.”
