Sonoran Hot Reads: Oregon A.D. Rob Mullens joins College Football Playoff selection committee

Another Pac-12 rep back in the picture

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

When Pat Haden had to step down from the College Football Playoff selection committee due to health reasons this year, people wondered if that would impact the conference's chances at getting a team in. Turns out, the Pac-12 took care of that themselves by failing to get a one-loss team out of league play. But the Pac-12 will be back in those sad looking meeting rooms with Oregon athletic director Rob Mullens. Mullens will serve for three years, and is one of five sitting A.D.'s on the committee. He can't talk about the Ducks in those meetings, but having another Pac-12 person in there will be good in addition to Condoleezza Rice
