NCAA Prez Sees BCS Changes Coming… But No Playoff

The BCS title game is set and it features a rematch of a regular season game between two teams from the same conference, one of whom technically didn’t win a single prize all year.

To folks inside that conference — the SEC — it’s no big deal.  To people outside the South, it’s darn near conniption time.  For that reason, none other than NCAA president Mark Emmert expects the current BCS system to get a few more tweaks this offseason:


“After this season, I think there will be the beginning of a great debate on what the model looks like.  It’s changed a couple of times in its short history and I wouldn’t be surprised if it changed again.”


When asked if a playoff might be in the offing, Emmert said no.


“That becomes a demand that is physically enormous for these students.  It becomes a huge academic strain on them because you’re playing ball right through final and into the next semester.”


Someone might want to inform the prez that the 2011-12 FCS playoff schedule began November 26th and runs right through its championship game on January 7th of next year.

Double-talk and excuses aside, the best fans can hope for is a plus-one model at this point.  And a seeded plus-one model — a Football Final Four, if you will — should allow any squad with a legitimate claim at the title to vie for it on the field.
