Well, as Doc Saturday notes, it’s BCS get-together week. Here are a few stories from it, or related to the BCS/playoffs debate:
- The Mountain West’s playoff proposal got a whole hour-and-a-half’s worth of attention before being consigned to proposal hell – “… referred to conferences, athletic directors, faculty athletic representatives and university presidents for discussion until the BCS meets at the Collegiate Commissioners Association meetings June 15-19 in Colorado Springs.”
- Even the Mountain West’s commissioner thinks the antitrust threats against the BCS are worthless.
- Regardless, Rep. Barton has a vision for the football postseason: “… but if they let 65 teams compete for the basketball championship, you could certainly let 8 teams or 16 teams, using the existing bowl structure, compete for the championship in football.” Yummy!
