College Football Playoffs: ACC Hopes For June 26 Development

When, oh, when will college football's playoff debate finally yield a four-team format? The most optimistic observers have cast June 26 as the earliest possible date, as that's when league commissioners will present their proposal to school presidents, who have the final say here. Now there's talk of the thing dragging out through September as the Big Ten and Pac-12 engage in a little brake-pumping.

But check out who's looking on the bright side here. The ACC:

Swofford said he hopes the commissioners will be able to present a four-team playoff to the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee in Washington, D.C., next week. The presidents' committee, which is chaired by Virginia Tech's Charles W. Steger and includes 12 university presidents, will ultimately decide where college football's postseason is headed.

The ACC seems to side near the middle on most of the remaining issues, so from John Swofford's perspective, the big remaining hangups might not appear all that big.
