Like your pal Dorn reported last week, college football trashing the current BCS system in lieu of a 4-team playoff was imminent. Last week, the wide world of sports finally caught up to and subdued that pesky BCS bowl system after many years of hunting it down. With the upcoming meeting and fate of this much maligned system only a week away, the bowl system has been held at gun point pending its sentencing. Well, tonight it got its brains blown out.
The news became official on Tuesday evening after being approved by the Bowl Championship Series President Oversight Committee (they really need to shorten that name). The playoff format will be derived of the top four seeded teams in the nation as chosen by a selection committee.
“The hell’s gonna be in this selection committee?”
It’s undetermined at this point, and if I know college football fans like I think I do, this is the source of their future bellyaching. It will be a great challenge to contrive a non-partisan committee based on complete equality.
But still, crack a cold one. The greatest sport on earth just but better.
