Greg Sankey praises 4-team Playoff format during Georgia title celebration
Greg Sankey and the SEC have long said that, while they’re open to expanding the College Football Playoff, they’re also fine with keeping it at 4 teams.
On Saturday, Georgia celebrated its national championship, and the SEC commissioner was in attendance.
Sankey had some praise for the 4-team Playoff format while he was talking, saying it worked out just fine for the SEC this year:
Greg Sankey to the Georgia crowd: “As the commissioner of the Southeastern Conference, I think the four-team Playoff worked out fine this year, didn’t you?”

Indeed, getting 2 of the 4 teams into the Playoff and then watching those 2 teams win must have made the SEC commissioner proud.
We’ll see if the Playoff format changes over the next few years, but as of right now, it seems things are staying put at 4 teams.
