The will-they-or-won't-they wait is over regarding College Football Playoff expansion, a debate that has lasted nearly as long as the CFP has existed (eight years), but questions remain.

First off, when? With Friday's announcement came reports that the new format could take effect as early as 2024, but as ESPN reported, Southeastern Conference commissioner Greg Sankey says that's not likely.

ESPN's Mark Schlabach wrote that College Football Playoff's board of managers unanimously voted to expand the playoff to 12 teams starting in 2026, but the 11 presidents and chancellors who make up the board encouraged the sport's commissioners to try to implement the expanded format as soon as 2024.
