Confessions of a Harris Pole voter

Since I was hired at Sports Fans Coalition, I have heard many words of encouragement from several of my father’s colleagues. One of them is a former college athletics administrator who is well respected and is also one of the 114 Harris Poll voters. He shared his thoughts on the BCS with me and now I share them with you:

“I believe a playoff is best “for the good of the game.” That is, if it is important to determine who is number one, then access should not be restricted. We just kind of go along with what we did last year with a tweak here and a tweak there. Actually, the NCAA is the natural point agency to control and manage post season football at the D-l level. Never understood their reluctance to do this.”
