College Football Playoff expansion proposal delayed again

The effort to expand the college football playoffs to 12 teams hit yet another major snag on Monday as the CFP board of managers failed to agree on a proposal, multiple sources reported on Monday.

CBS Sports reported one commissioner said the committee "didn't even come close" to nailing down a proposal as multiple issues continue to stand in the way.

The committee will reportedly meet again in a few weeks to try to come to an agreement on a proposal. However, it is also reported there is no set timeline for getting an agreement together, and some members of the committee are growing frustrated with the process.

The idea to expand the CFP to 12 teams — ultimately adding some variety to a CFP schedule that features several of the same teams almost every year — was originally introduced in March 2020, but a proposal was delayed in light of the COVID-19 pandemic. It didn't resurface again until it was mentioned in a release in April of last year. 

CBS Sports adds that Texas and Oklahoma joining the SEC and the debacle that followed that decision have played a part in delaying the agreement.
