It sounds like the conference commissioners are going to wait until the big TV money gets negotiated before doing anything about the D-1 football postseason:
“We had an excellent and thorough conversation about the plan but at the time it was decided that we would move forward with the current system,” Swofford said. “When you look at the last 10 years of the BCS its clear that college football has never been healthier.”
Slive, who had been talking about a new model since Auburn was left out of the BCS championship game four years ago, said that he was glad that the conversation took place even though his idea didn’t prevail.
“What we understand is that this model is not a panacea,” Slive said. “It would have helped in 2004 but last season Georgia would have been left out at No. 5. So it doesn’t solve all of our problems. What we have to do now is look ahead to the next cycle of the BCS, watch it closely, and keep our options open.”
It seems to me that all playoff proponents need to do to affect a change is to quit watching the BCS for the next few years. That shouldn’t be too hard, right?
