You know, my original intent in posting about this USA Today interview with Bill Hancock was to note that even the BCS’ own flack won’t deny that the college football playoff is
n’t going to grow past its current four-team configuration. But then I got to the last paragraph…
“From the start, this was not about the money,” he said. “Sure there’s more money. There will be more money for everybody in the playoff. It’s a very good thing, obviously. But what this was about was doing what’s best for the game, preserving the regular season, preserving the bowl experience for all athletes in college football, not just the ones in the playoff. That was the central core of all the discussions.”
… and realized the whole piece was nothing more than a bad how-can-you-tell-when-Bill Hancock-is-lying joke.
Stay tuned a few years from now when he assures us all that the move to twelve teams is about doing what’s best for the game, too. Bigger is always better, right?
