‘Perception’ of Pac-12 hurt 10-2 Washington State, AD says

first_img Jim McElwain to be named as Central Michigan coach, report says The release of the final College Football Playoff rankings always leaves fans, coaches, players and administrators looking for answers (or excuses) as to why their team isn’t ranked higher.For Washington State (10-2), which finished at No. 13, “disappointed” Cougars athletic director Pat Chun pointed his finger at the selection committee’s opinion of the Pac-12. Chun said he thought his team deserved a bid to a New Year’s Six bowl, but added he’s “ecstatic to be in the Alamo Bowl” against No. 24 Iowa State. The Cougs are headed to the @valeroalamobowl in San Antonio!#GoCougs | #JoinTheHunt pic.twitter.com/sE2gCLAK9e— WSU Cougars (@WSUCougars) December 2, 2018Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott seemed to share Chun’s attitude.”While we are disappointed that they were not selected for a New Year’s Six bowl, we made the case for Washington State to the selection committee through the established communications protocols, and we were aligned in our approach with Washington State in this regard,” the Pac-12 said in a statement (via ESPN.com). “At the same time, we know that the selection committee has difficult decisions to make, and we respect the committee and its members.”Seven teams in total from the Pac-12 will play in a bowl game with Washington headlining the conference bids as the Huskies will play No. 6 Ohio State in the Rose Bowl on Jan. 1.center_img College Football Playoff official: No plan to expand format, despite controversy “We can easily infer that where we’re ranked is a result of maybe the perception of the league,” Chun said (via the Moscow-Pullman Daily News). “We believe, as a 10-win team in a Power 5 league, the manner in which our two losses came, statistically how we match up with the other teams in the same cluster as us, we believed our resume ranked perhaps higher than where the committee thought it was, but they are empowered to make those decisions. We’ll respect those decisions.”Washington State was ranked as high as No. 8 before losing its season finale to rival Washington, which at No. 9 in the final rankings, is one of three three-loss teams ahead of the Cougars (No. 10 Florida, No. 11 LSU).
