ESPN’s Paul Finebaum once again called into question the credibility of Ducks AD Rob Mullens, who is in his second year as the chairman of the College Football Playoff selection committee, but this time in far more explicit and personal terms. During his Thursday radio show, Finebaum cited a column by USA Today’s George Schroeder pointing out the awkwardness of the CFP selection committee chair being the sitting athletic director of a school whose team is contending for what could be the final spot in the four-team field. However, CFP protocol calls for Mullens to leave the room anytime the No. 6 Ducks (9-1, 7-0 Pac-12) are among the teams being discussed, which has been at the same time as No. 4 Georgia and No. 5 Alabama for each of the last two weeks. “I frankly don’t know if I trust this guy being in charge,” Finebaum said during his show, which is simulcast on the SEC Network. “I don’t trust him because he’s not honest, and I just think he has an influence on that committee. Maybe I should save my powder if Oregon gets in, but then it’s going to be too late.” -James Crepea, The Oregonian/OregonLive, Read More
