The BCS Comes to UNL


By HuskerLocker

The BCS Presidential Oversight Committee has a new chairman: University of Nebraska-Lincoln chancellor Harvey Perlman.

In other words, some would argue, Perlman just assumed a pretty important seat of power, as head of the committee that looks at the viability of playoffs, TV contracts, and the like.

The BCS just shot down a Mountain West proposal for an eight-team playoff. It was the chairman of the BCS PO committee, University of Oregon President Dave Frohnmayer, who delivered the vague statement explaining that any playoff suggestion “disrespect our academic calendars and they utterly lack a business plan.”

Well, a 12-game regular season helps disrupt the academic calendar. Conference title games help disrupt the academic calendar. And the playoff portion of Division I, filled with many excellent academic schools, manage to graduate kids despite the existence of a playoff.

The business plan argument, on the other hand…

At any rate, Perlman gets a shot at speaking for the BCS.

What? BCS over playoff? That's a like a dam crappie over a walleye. One's good-eatin, one's well, crappie.
