So let me ask the question of you. Of this decisionmaking group, what percentage of them represent the excluded class, two? Mr. Benson. I would say two, yes Senator McConnell. Two out of fifteen? Mr. Benson. Out of the 10 that will probably make that decision, even though there may be five other presidents on the board of I-AA, I-AAA. But inasmuch as this would be a I-A issue, the number of presidents who would make that decision would probably be ten.” P. 82 of document (p.88 of .pdf) Senator DeWine: Let me ask Mr. Richardson and Mr. Peace, as student-athletes, what is your opinion about a playoff? Do you have an opinion about that? Mr. Peace: If I had to give my opinion on a playoff, if you had asked me maybe before all of this had happened with the bowl games, I would probably be in favor of a bowl system just because, you know, it gives us a chance to go somewhere sunny, which in Wyoming is pretty big deal for us, you know, and have that experience. You know, you get, you know, lots of extra clothes and, you know, things to give to your family. But after I see what can happen, you know, in the bowl system when, you know, out of 112 Division I schools there were only seven that had a higher winning percentage than the University of Wyoming—there were schools that were 6-5 playing in bowl games and we were just eliminated. I don’t know why and I don’t see why, and right now I feel that the only way that any and every team in the Nation is going to get a fair chance to, I guess, have a national title hope is through a playoff system. That is the only way that I can think of right now, unless they restructure the bowl system that would be fair to all schools, which is, you know, all that we ask.” Ask Bill (913)341-8151 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dd_xLXzxwCI
