The official announcement of the entire committee will come Wednesday, but the new revelation today is that Jeff Long is going going to be the Chairman of the committee.
We don't yet know exactly what this entails, but it is a significant honor, and as one who conceivably will be directing the planning and discussions of the Playoff Selection Committee, makes him one of the more powerful figures in college football.
The selection committee will pick the four team's to participate in college football's new playoff, which begins in 2014, as well as the teams to play in other New Year's Day bowls.
