NCAA postseason

by thoughtfulconservative

Two stories here. First the NCAA will add apair of bowl games.

The NCAA announced Wednesday that its Postseason Football Licensing Subcommittee had given the OK to 34 bowls this season – two more than last season.

The new games are the Congressional Bowl in Washington, D.C., and the St. Petersburg Bowl in St. Petersburg, Fla. The subcommittee did nix one bowl, the proposed Rocky Mountain Bowl in Salt Lake City.

The St. Petersburg Bowl. What an imaginative name. Couldn’t they get Tropicana to sponsor that, too?

Then BCS officials reject a playoff proposal.

Even a four-game playoff scenario was too much for the BCS.

Bowl Championship Series officials rejected a plan Wednesday to turn the much-criticized system for deciding a national champ into a four-team playoff, starting in the 2010 season.

The BCS format will remain the same until at least the 2014 season.

Great. We won’t know who is truly the college champion for six years.

And I do hope we have disputed games every year for the next six.
