The 13 members of the College Football Playoff selection committee -- including new members Gene Smith, Chris Howard and Frank Beamer (pictured here) have concluded their first full meeting together at the Arizona Biltmore. They welcomed the new members and reviewed the protocol. The CFP has not made any changes to its protocol. Howard, the president of Robert Morris University, said, "the sport, the players, the coaches, the administrators, the parents, the fans, they're owed our best effort and intensive concentration on this effort and they're going to get it from me, and from my new fellow members Gene Smith and coach Beamer. I know they've gotten it from the people there already. It's serious good business and it's an honor."
