Column: BCS May Get It Right But Beware
by Scooter Hobbs
So we turn our attention back to college football, where in the same south Florida hotel where Al Capone once made his winter home the sports’ powers that be are allegedly making honest progress toward falling in with what SEC Commissioner Mike “Smartest Man in the Room” Slive suggested four years ago. The meeting of college football’s most powerful czars hasn’t yet quite produced the white puff of smoke signifying that a bona fide playoff has been ratified, but even the former opponents are admitting its inevitable. About the only thing in the way of an official announcement came with word that the officials had used up about half their expense account for the week to determine that the playoff would not be eight or 16 teams. Glad they cleared that up. I just hope they didn’t waste too much time on coming to the same conclusion that got Slive laughed out of the room four years ago.
