Paul Finebaum hasn’t been shy about criticizing those in power in college football, particularly when it comes to dragging their feet on expanding the College Football Playoff.

After recent news that the Playoff would remain at 4 teams until at least 2026, fans and media members aren’t happy.

On Tuesday, the SEC Network host joined “McElroy and Cubelic in the Morning” on WJOX and ripped into the conference commissioners, specifically those in The Alliance:

“This falls at the feet of the college commissioners,” Finebaum said. “And what they didn’t do, or did do, last Friday is an utter disgrace. It’s truly one of the most disappointing and disgusting moments, I think, in the history of modern college football, for an organization that, in essence, approved the Playoff and then saw the entire thing spiral out of control because of pettiness, because of jealousy and, quite frankly, because of ignorance, I think. I know people say, ‘Well, these are all smart people, they wouldn’t have left half a billion dollars on the table and they wouldn’t have come to this conclusion.’

“If you’re playing the blame game, it’s really not hard to figure out where to place the blame. The blame lies at the feet of Jim Phillips, the ACC commissioner; George Kliavkoff, the head of the Pac-12; and Kevin Warren. These are the 3 amigos who have absolutely hurt college football, but mostly hurt themselves, because the Pac-12 needs this more than any other league. The Big Ten can survive and the ACC, as long as Clemson has a quarterback, will probably make the playoffs. The Pac-12, by saying all the things that they have said, have hurt themselves badly, and the real question is will that league still be relevant by the time we get to the end of this contract and potentially expand again?”

Finebaum makes some good points. Will this issue get revisited soon, or will the CFB powers stand firm on 4 teams over the next few years?
