BCS leaders far from agreement on changes
SEC Commissioner Mike Slive, whose league has won the last six BCS national championships, said there are plenty of issues that have to be reviewed.
“Every aspect of this is going to be looked at,” Slive said. “By making this a marathon and not a sprint, we’re going to have the luxury of looking at every element of every possibility and view it against the regular season. I think that’s the sum and substance of where we are.”
Part of the meeting Tuesday was spent reviewing final exam schedules for all 120 schools. Hancock said the commissioners would like to avoid playing games from early December to about Dec. 21, when most schools have finals.
They also don’t want to play games much past Jan. 1. The BCS title game has been held as late as Jan. 10, and has regularly been played on Jan. 7 or 8 since it was implemented for the 2006 season.
“I’m very pleased with the conversation, a lot of good, robust discussion about objectives and opportunities related to postseason college football. … Very open, very engaged, very creative and thinking about the bigger picture,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. “Everyone’s focused on balancing the regular season, balancing the bowl tradition, balancing the very important academic parameters, and from my perspective, we’re focused on the right issues.
“I’m pleased with how it’s begun,” he said. “It’s an ongoing process that is going to take some time. We’re at the very early stages.”
