On Wednesday at SEC Media Days in Hoover, Ala., College Football Playoff executive director Bill Hancock explained how this new system will work.
Well, at least, he tried to.
Here’s a simple summary of Hancock’s presentation, in six tweets:
Bill Hancock made at least the third Pac-10 reference at SEC Media Days. Also dropped a Big 8 reference.

Hancock: "Uh timeout. I did that wrong." My confidence in this new system is overwhelming.

Bill Hancock has asked us twice now "Please don't tweet that" while explaining the playoff — it's quite endearing, really.

My takeaway from Bill Hancock this morning: This better be explained a whole lot better to fans in December.

Bill, don't think it's the selection process that's the issue, it's deciding that "final rankings" column on the left we'll all fight about.

This is so confusing.

The summary is clearer than anything Hancock said, that’s for sure. Wait — don’t tweet that.
