The College Football Playoff selection committee is tasked with the difficult job of picking the top-four teams in each year's postseason field.

Often times this decision making process draws heavy criticism from fans around the college football world. But for the most part, it appears the general public is pleased with the committee's selections.

CFP executive director Bill Hancock says the public approval rating for the selection committee sits somewhere around 76 percent, per college football insider

ESPN told CFP that the selection committee remains popular, he adds. Hancock says it’s something like a 76% approval rating from the public.

The CFP has been locked in discussions regarding a potential playoff expansion over the last few months, but Hancock says those discussions will be put on pause for this week's meeting. He says they could resume sometime "within the next year."

Hancock also added that the CFP will return to its regular media days this coming season.

Next year's National Championship game will take place in Los Angeles and the year after that in Houston. 2024 and 2025 locations have not yet been determined.
