BCS: ‘Host of intricate details’ being discussed
Question of the Day
Also taking part Monday were television consultants hired to help provide advice about the potential value of different postseason models being considered.
The BCS is in the middle of a four-year deal with ESPN that runs through the 2014 season. A new BCS format must be in place before the fall when television negotiations with ESPN open, though Hancock indicated last month that the contract did allow for a delay if needed.
Hancock wouldn’t get into specifics about the potential value of a new TV deal, but expects “good numbers.”
Chuck Neinas, the interim commissioner of the Big 12 through June, said the figures he heard Monday are encouraging.
“A buck or two,” Neinas said, with a smile. “We’re still in the embryonic stage.”
Neinas said there is still a sensitivity to dates and not extending the season. He described the full meeting as “thought provoking” with good discussion.
“It’s a bit of a matrix. You’ve got 11 conferences, 100-something institutions, people coming at it with different bowl arrangements,” Slive said. “Take all of that, and lay it out. You have to start to focus in on what we can do with all of that that protects the regular season and makes the postseason better.”
