Barry Alvarez has spoken to Bill Hancock "multiple times" about the College Football Playoff selection committee

+

Wisconsin's Director of Athletics seems like a natural fit for the CFP selection committee, both in light of the recent reports that one current AD from each of the five power conferences will sit on the committee and regarding his stature among college football's higher-ups.

Alvarez says he's spoken with Hancock, the executive director of the CFP, "multiple times" and sent "strong signals" he would serve on the committee if asked. There might not be resolution on members yet since the committee itself is still taking shape -- numbers and backgrounds are still being discussed, as are the exact methods that will be followed when picking the four schools that will play for the national championship beginning in 2014. The committee will also be tasked with assigning schools to the four New Year's Day bowl games that aren't hosting the semifinals.

"I’d have to think about it,’’ Alvarez said this week of his message to Hancock, per Andy Baggot of the Wisconsin State Journal, "but football’s been very good to me and I owe college football. I’d be interested.’’
