Arkansas AD and chairman of the college football playoff committee chair Jeff Long joined the show to discuss their opening rankings.

Long said the biggest debate was placing No. 4 through No. 6 – Ole Miss, Oregon and Alabama.

Dan asked if they care about Florida State’s success last season. “We never dicussed the past,” Long said. “We’re really focused on this season.”

Long gave Notre Dame’s loss to Florida State as a “good loss” and said even though the Irish are at No. 10, they were actually helped.
