Shelton vows to be strong leader of Fiesta revival
Shelton was asked whether he favors the BCS system over a playoff format.
“It’s demonstrable that the BCS has been extremely successful if you define success as pitting the top two teams,” he said. “If you look pre-BCS that rarely happened. Now it really is happening. It’s also been a system that has preserved the integrity of the bowls, the viability, the strength of the bowls and also the regular season of college football.”
He called college football’s regular season “the most dynamic, highly watched” of any sport.
“That said, I know there is this visceral hunger some people have for a playoff,” Shelton said. “And I think if they’re going to put that forward in any successful way they need to come up with a viable option. A viable option means playoffs that grow and grow and grow and grow and not interfere _ now I’m putting my university president’s hat on _ with the academics of these young men. So I think there are a lot of unknowns, but the bottom line is you have to acknowledge the great success of the BCS to date.”
