B1G Commissioner Jim Delany was flying when the College Football Playoff was revealed. His connection during the flight, but Delany was able to see which four teams made the playoff during real time. And his reaction was typical, surprised and disappointed.
Delany joined BTN on Sunday to talk about Ohio State not making the playoff. But instead of going on a rant, Delany was calm and understanding about the decision. However, he still feels the Buckeyes deserved to be.
Jim Delany took the high road today in response to @CFBPlayoff.
