Executive Director of the BCS Bill Hancock participated in an interview with Sports Illustrated Dan Patrick last Tuesday. Hancock takes a presumed current system stance but we in the KP Coalition are pro-current system too. The BCS tournament currently affords two participants the right fight for the glass football. With the expansionary package afforded by the KP, each BCS participant could participate for the crown. Patrick's claim that the month of December could be owned by the FBS is enitirely true but with ownership comes money and that is why the conference commissioners will not concede to a NCAA sanctioned tournament. If Delaney has said that "$700-$800 million" could be brought in by a playoff then that further clarifies why they oppose such an event. The BCS distributes about $500 million from their broadcasting contest with ESPN. Which is less than what could be generated by a playoff. This whole thing is not about the size of the cake. Even if Delaney were to go on record saying there is billions of dollars in a playoff, the "good ol boys" still would not concede to the public's "fixation" of money. It's all about money for them too but a playoff gives the knife to the NCAA. 11 conference commissioners and administrators at Notre Dame do not want to hand the knife to the public.
