FILE - In this Nov. 3, 2010, file photo, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban looks on during the first half of an NBA basketball game against the Denver Nuggets in Denver.  BCS executive director Bill Hancock says he doubts "financial inducements," such as the oneCuban is considering, will lead to a major college football playoff. Cuban told ESPNDallas.com on Wednesday that he was "actively interested but in the exploratory stage" of trying to bankroll a 12- or 16-team playoff that would replace the controversial Bowl Championship Series.
