From Heather Dinich of ESPN.com:

Clemson athletic director Terry Don Phillips said his counterparts throughout the league have spent more time discussing the possible formats for a playoff than the possibility of a selection committee, but that some combination of a human element and computers would be beneficial.

“I do like the computer rankings, where you get obviously a very unbiased ranking with regard to all of the variables that go into it,” he said. “I don’t think you want to do away with that. I think that should be a leading component or analysis of who are the best teams. But I do believe there is a place for people who have a good, solid background in football and have a good understanding of football with regard to being able to look at factors relative to each team and form a highly educated opinion in an unbiased fashion to go along with what the computers do for you. I think that would be helpful.”
