Earlier today, college football conference commissioners met behind closed doors in Fort Lauderdale (a more central location, I cannot name) to discuss the move from the BCS to a playoff to determine the national champion. Now, I wouldn't trust this group to run the funnel cake stand at the Country Bear Jamboree, but, unfortunately, it's what we're stuck with, and all we can hope for is that they don't royally screw this up.
As I've mentioned before, all they reallly have to do is decide on a plan that is a fraction better than what we already have. That's it. No perfect plan that causes people to pour into the streets and break out in spontaneous song and dance. Just something marginally better that allows everyone to say, "HARUMPH, WELL, IT'S BETTER THAN WHAT WE HAD."
Given the turd levels of Jim Delany and the Rose Bowl, it's probably going to be a super duper pain in the ass just to make that happen. And even then, I'm sure there will be some clause in the new deal that says the Rose Bowl 10-ply toilet paper while everyone else gets two-ply.
Luckily, through the magic of spying, I've obtained exclusive footage of today's meeting, which should let us know how much progress has been made.
It would be outstanding if Jim Delany and the Rose Bowl people got trapped in a well for the rest of these meetings.
