COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — The Mountain West hired Gloria Nevarez, who has been leading the West Coast Conference for the last five years, to be its next commissioner on Friday.
Nevarez replaces longtime Commissioner Craig Thompson, who announced his retirement in September.
The College Football Playoff is built to expand.
While only three games determine a champion, the current format is seven games: Two semifinals, a title game and four marquee bowls. To convert a four-team playoff into a 12-team version requires four more games and about three more weeks.
Craig Thompson, the only commissioner the Mountain West Conference has known, is stepping down after nearly 24 years in charge.
The league announced Wednesday that Thompson's last day will be Dec.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — State Senate Republicans confirmed four of Democratic Gov. Tony Evers' Cabinet appointments Tuesday after letting them languish for months but took no action on a key pick that would give the governor control of wildlife and pollution policies.
MADISON, Wis. (AP) — The Republican-controlled Wisconsin Senate on Friday scheduled confirmation votes next week for four of Gov. Tony Evers' Cabinet secretaries.
Confirming the governor's pick for top-level administration posts had been a pro forma courtesy that morphed into a yearslong partisan battle waged by Republicans after the Democratic Evers was elected in 2018.
College Football Playoff expansion has entered the negotiation stage.
The road to a new format for deciding major college football's national champion took a detour Wednesday when the CFP management committee — 10 conference commissioners and Notre Dame's athletic director — was unable to come to a consensus on the proposed 12-team format.
The state is “reinvigorating” a study of potential improvements to the Madison Beltline that had largely taken a backseat under the previous administration, according to Gov. Tony Evers’ pick to lead the Department of Transportation.
