BCS eschews change, charges toward more mediocrity with two new bowls, no playoff
Like groundhogs on the second day of February, the grand pooh-bahs who run college football went outside for a little fresh air Wednesday, saw their shadows, and quickly ducked back inside.
College football fans know what that means: at least six more years of BCS winter.
Not that it was surprising that the BCS meetings ended Wednesday with no significant change in the format. But one could always hope.
Instead, there will be no four-team playoff and not even any controversial “tweaks” to the system. College football is, according to the commissioners of the 11 Division I-A football-playing conferences and Notre Dame Athletics Director Kevin White, just fine the way it is.
“I know that’s what a lot of fans don’t want to hear,” Big East Commissioner Mike Tranghese told reporters who gathered at the Fort Lauderdale, Fla., Westin Diplomat, waiting for the groundhog – er, commissioners to emerge.
