I’d say this is pretty unambiguous:
“Our presidents have no interest whatsoever in a plus-one model — none,” (Pac-10 commissioner Tom) Hansen says. “It’s a little annoying that my colleagues continue to float this idea as though it has merit. If they continue to push it, and try to push us into a corner … ”
Will the Pac-10 walk away from the BCS?
“Yes, no question.”
Again, before anyone jumps my case and accuses me of being gleeful about this, the point isn’t that playoffs suck per se. It’s that it’s apparent that we’re still at a point where, as much as some people would like us to think otherwise, a playoff is anything but a slam dunk to structure.
Unless you happen to think that a title game without the Pac-10 or Big Ten winners being part of the playoff process is still an improvement over the current BCS, of course. In which case, Bernie would love to hear from you.
