He has been athletic director at OU since 1998. The conference is guaranteed a sitting athletic director, thus Castiglione's appointment.

2018's six new members of the 13-member College Football Playoff selection committee were announced on Wednesday: Paola Boivin, Joe Castiglione, Ken Hatfield, Ronnie Lott, Todd Stansbury, and Scott Stricklin. "I'm especially looking forward to joining 12 other outstanding leaders as we collectively fulfill the role we have been given". He has served as the SEC representative on the NCAA Division I Leadership Council and is now a member of the Division I Football Competition Committee.

Along with these additions, Oregon AD Rob Mullens will be taking over the chair position from Texas Tech AD Kirby Holcott.

Stansbury will serve a three-year term on the committee, which annually selects the 25 best teams in college football, ranks the teams for inclusion in the four-team playoff and selected other bowl games and assigns teams to bowl sites.

Flu on the Rise
This has been the most flu activity since 2014-15 and health officials have no timetable of when it could slow down. Ehresmann noted that even in a perfectly matched year, the vaccine will not prevent every case of flu.

"These are high-integrity people who know and love college football", said CFP Executive Director Bill Hancock.

Lott was an all-American safety at Southern Cal and an eight-time all-pro with the San Francisco 49ers. She also worked for the Los Angeles Daily News. He now is a businessman in the San Francisco Bay area.

Stansbury, a Georgia Tech alum and former football player, was hired by his alma mater in 2016. She now works in the journalism department at Arizona State. He previously was AD at Missouri and is a Maryland graduate.

That's why Ohio State athletic director Gene Smith, Clemson AD Dan Radakovich and former head coach Frank Beamer, whose son is on Georgia's staff, were forced to recuse themselves from the final vote for the 2017 playoff. Among the five former coaches on the committee, none have a Big 12 background, though Bower was offensive coordinator at Oklahoma State back in the Big Eight days.
