Don’t you have, like, a school or something to run?

Nothing like another university president showing his ass over the football postseason:

Arizona State University’s president is calling for the end of college football’s Bowl Championship Series, pushing for an eight-team playoff that would leave the best teams out of the Fiesta Bowl and other BCS games.

Michael Crow appears to be one of the first presidents from a major university to publicly denounce the current system, which guarantees large annual payouts…

That’s bound to be a popular approach.

All you need to know about the man’s attachment to reality can be summarized in one sentence.

Crow said the current BCS system places too much emphasis on money and not the student-athlete.

What a profound revelation.  Perhaps he should clue his own conference commissioner, who’s pumping for a new, long-term TV deal for the BCS, in.  And while he’s at it, he might want to share his thoughts with the NCAA, as it’s currently pondering reducing the scope of the already less-than-whopping $2000 stipend proposed by Mark Emmert.

Every day, every day, every day Corch writes the book.

And you can feel that next chapter coming on.

“I was very angry that would even be brought up, and there were fellow Big Ten coaches who were angry as well. And the commissioner was very angry, so there was a lot of…to have that make the presses, especially when it’s inaccurate, legally you’re not allowed to do that. That’s slander. To use someone’s name in terms like that is very wrong, but we moved on.”

Yeah, right.

Friendly word of advice for Bret Bielema:  the next time you face the Buckeyes, you might want to keep an eye on how they’re managing their second half timeouts.
