Erin Andrews zinged David Pollack on Saturday for saying he doesn't believe women belong on the College Football Playoff selection committee.

Pollack's comment was made just a day after it was reported that former U.S. Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice is expected to be a member of the College Football Playoff selection committee that will select teams for the College Football Playoff next year.

Pollack's controversial comments stated: "Now I'm going to stick my foot in my mouth, probably. I want people on this committee, guys, that can watch tape … Yes, that have played football, that are around football, that can tell you different teams, on tape, not on paper…"

Pollack continued to make his point that committee members should be former players, when ESPN host Chris Fowler asked if that requirement should preclude women being placed on the committee.

Fowler said, "So no woman belongs on the committee, then?"

Pollack didn't back down, and replied, "You said that … I'll say it, yeah. Yeah."

Others on the panel quickly saw the controversy with Pollack's statements and they moved to disagree with his stance of having women on the panel.
