Follow Boise State's new Twitter accounts

New AD Mark Coyle is already making his mark. We knew he was big on Twitter and now he's showing it. Boise State has unveiled an official twitter account for every sport. Check them all out but follow @BroncoSportsFB for sure. Now when is the official Coach Pete twitter account coming?

BCS spent a record $350k lobbying in D.C. last year

This was more than four times what they spent just three years ago. I would like to think this is in part due to the relentlessness of our friends at the Playoff PAC who exposed corruption at the Fiesta Bowl and John Junker and has continued to pursue the Sugar and Orange Bowls.

Could the Big Ten actually be in favor of a playoff?

Sources told the Chicago Tribune that a Big Ten plan would involve taking the top 4 of the BCS standings and staging semifinal games at the higher ranking school. This is almost too good to be true so I'm not getting my hopes up yet, but playoff games with schools hosting would be a huge step forward.
