Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany on the playoff selections and process: "Around the edges, there's always going to be an argument. There was in Year 1, maybe there wasn't in Year 2, there was in Year 3. So there was a cluster there, and the committee resolved it as they saw best.

There's standards applied by people for the facts of the day."
