CFP officials in contact with FBI over threats made after Florida State snub

Jan 8, 2024

HOUSTON — College Football Playoff officials have been in contact with the FBI over threats to its own employees and members of the CFP selection committee over Florida State being left out of the playoff, CFP executive director Bill Hancock said.

All CFP selection committee members received “profanity-laced emails and calls” and some received threats on their homes and families, Hancock told reporters Monday from the site of the national championship. Hancock says the CFP is “totally disappointed” at accusations and vitriol from politicians in the state of Florida over FSU’s snub, including conspiracy allegations that have stoked the fires.

“It’s ridiculous,” Hancock said. “Every NCAA sports committee receives criticism from the teams left out. I’ve been doing this for 35 years now. I’ve seen it and understand it, but this one ... I haven’t seen anything like this one.”
