Commissioners to give presidents playoff options
And what about the independents?
“They’re discussions about everything from the dates to the sites to the who to how,” Hancock said. “It was all talked about today in a very productive way, and it was decided that each commissioner now needs to go talk to his presidents.”
Whatever they come up with, it probably needs to be done by the fall, when the BCS opens a new round of television negotiations. Hancock said that’s the goal, although it could happen after the season. He also pointed out that the networks could balk at the plan. That seems to be an unlikely scenario, but BCS officials have been very careful throughout this process to avoid over-promising anything.
“This won’t be resolved until after the package goes to the television market,” Hancock said. “The TV people might say, `We don’t want to buy that package.’ Then, our guys might say, `Fine, we’ll do something else.’ It could be awhile before the future of the game is known.”
