Memo: Legal Challenge of BCS unlikely - AP
Matthew Sanderson, co-founder of Playoff PAC, which seeks to pressure college football to switch to a playoff, said that Hancock was trying to "present a false choice -- the BCS or nothing. But we all know better." Indeed we do, Mr Sanderson.
"I don't think that's true at all," said Gary Roberts, dean of the Indiana University Law School in Indianapolis. "I think you could craft a playoff system that would not have many of the anticompetitive aspects to it that the current BCS system has." In fact, this playoff idea has been seen before. But where? Hmm.
Penn State president Graham Spanier "We're not going to have a playoff...There has never been any sentiment whatsoever for a playoff ... If we didn't have the BCS, you would see a movement back to a more traditional bowl system." I don't like change. Be Gone.
In last year's memo, Hancock wrote that the BCS attorneys "have advised that in the unlikely event that the conferences' creation of the BCS were to be considered unlawful, it is probable that any other such arrangement -- including a playoff -- also would be unlawful." Snuffing out hope for reason and justice since 98'
