Some of the members of the college football playoff committee were released on Friday. Among them was a surprise entry: former United States Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice.
Rice has never served on any football committee in the past or had any real involvement in the sport in anyway, which led many to wonder why she was selected for the committee in the first place. Former All-American defensive end and current ESPN college football analyst David Pollack took that line of questioning to the next level on Saturday, all but saying that women don’t have a place in college football.
When asked about his thoughts on the committee and members like Rice, during a segment on College Gameday on Saturday, Pollack said he wanted people who know football, which sparked host Chris Fowler to ask if he meant that women didn’t belong. Pollack agreed to the leading question after a slight hesitation, simply saying “yeah.”
Check out Pollack’s comments in the video below.

David Pollack might have just had an “oops” moment. Pollack, when speaking on ESPN’s College GameDay about the college football playoff selection committee (which is still being formed/announced), seemed to imply that women do not belong aboard. His reasoning? He thinks that the committee should be made up of people who “played football”. For those unaware, it was announced...

David Pollack just dug himself a hole. On ESPN’s College GameDay earlier this morning in Evanston for the Ohio State-Northwestern game, the former All-American DE at Georgia literally stuck his foot in his mouth after saying that people that hadn’t played college football shouldn’t be allowed on the new college football playoff committee.
Pollack is undoubtedly referring...

Twitter exploded over David Pollack's comments that only former players, thus no women, should be on the NCAA college football committee.
On yesterday's show, the ESPN College GameDay crew was discussing the makeup of the selection committee for the upcoming college football playoff. Just who was going to serve in this group of elite minds and decide the fate of the national championship was always going to fall under heavy scrutiny.
So who could have ever predicted that the inclusion of former Secretary...
Chris Fowler threw Pollack under the bus.
We all knew what Pollack was saying when he went on his rant how he would prefer people who have played football and watch tape to be on the College Football Playoff Committee, but Fowler forced him to admit he didn’t want women on the committee.
Two things, should be noted.

When the ESPN College GameDay crew comes to town, many schools roll out the red carpet for the analysts, and often give out some interesting gifts as well. Today in Evanston, some custom jerseys were bestowed upon Desmond Howard, Kirk Herbstreit, David Pollack, and a few others. The problem? There were a few errors:
Maybe this was intentional — it’s hard to believe that the...
This morning on ESPN’s College GameDay show, analyst David Pollack said “I’m probably going to put my foot in my mouth”, and then proceeded to do just that. When discussing Condoleezza Rice being added to the College Football Playoff Selection Committee, Pollack indicated that he didn’t think she was qualified, because she had never played football. Chris Fowler then connected...
Fox Sports personality Erin Andrews really should have hit ESPN analyst David Pollack much harder in response to his sexist remark regarding women not belonging on the college football playoff selection committee.
I know Erin Andrews has been all corporatized for many years, and as such can never say anything acerbic, or maybe even “colorful” these days, but this is a situation...
