ESPN: “DALLAS — After two failed bids to buy a Major League Baseball team, billionaire Mark Cuban is seriously considering trying to use his money to create a playoff alternative to college football’s Bowl Championship Series”
I hope the man is able to pull this off. College Football needs a playoff system, period.
Come to think of it, it’s about time for my yearly BCS rant, complete with playoff brackets.
One reply on “Go Mark!”
As much as I would like to see it happen, I don’t think it will because the schools in the BCS conferences make way too much money with the current system. A proper playoff would reduce the big disparity in income between the big schools and the little ones, and anytime there’s money like that involved, the established players are going to fight like crazy to preserve it.
And as rich as Mark Cuban might be, he still doesn’t have the kind of money needed to fight this fight. He could get it started, sure, but it would take a lot more than he has to challenge them properly.
