Fans still don’t have official word yet on whether or not the College Football Playoff will be expanding.

According to ESPN, the CFP’s board of managers couldn’t come to an agreement on expansion after their Wednesday meeting, and they’ll meet again in January. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

“I thought there was a chance we’d get to the end today. We didn’t, and there were good and appropriate reasons why we didn’t,” Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby explained according to the same report.

SEC commissioner Greg Sankey added, “I am prepared to head a direction. Others are not. … At some point we have to make decisions. I came here ready to make a decision, but I understand the need to do some more work, so I’ll respect my colleagues in that regard.

I think I speak for fans everywhere when I say we’re getting sick and tired waiting for some actual answers about what’s happening.

We were told over the summer that the playoff was going to likely expand to 12 teams. What was the reaction? Everyone was fired up.

Now, we’re nearing the end of 2021, nothing has been set in stone and it looks like the people in charge don’t even know what’s going to happen.

How did this get fumbled so badly when it looked like a sure thing?

The playoff needs to expand and it needs to expand as quickly as possible. It’s what the fans want and it’s what we demand!
