DALLAS - The BCS released a statement Wednesday after the conclusion of its meetings. It didn't say much, but here it is:

"In an effort to grow college football's great popularity and success, we just completed two days of productive meetings in Dallas, Texas. 

"We have until the fall of this year to finalize any possible changes to our current structure. That's when contractual obligations require us to begin negotiations with our television carrier for future coverage decisions. We have a self-imposed deadline of sometime this summer to decide what changes we will propose to our governing bodies for football's post-season. It's still early in our process and we will continue to meet with our conferences and review options.

"Whatever we do, we want to protect college football's regular season which is the best and most meaningful in sports. We want to preserve the great bowl tradition while making it better and more attractive. We also have heard the message about playing bowl games closer to or on January 1, the way it used to be. 

"As we proceed, we will evaluate the many pros and cons of numerous possible changes. Every idea has exciting up sides, as well as complicated consequences. From the realities of the calendar to the issues presented in terms of venues such as who hosts games, we have tremendous responsibilities and opportunities.

"The bottom line is we will continue to talk about how to make a great sport even better for student-athletes, fans and everyone who loves college football."

SOS rolled in powdered sugar not a donut...

Here is the translation from adminspeak to English:
"We are still trying to figure out a way for us, our Trustees, and all of our families to still get free vacations to bowl locations, swag bags, and envelopes full of money every year if a playoff happens.  Consequently, we will continue to use the "welfare of the student-athlete" as the biggest excuse in sports.   As soon as we figure out a way for all of us to keep our ill-gotten gains without the public being able to trace it, we will announce a pathetic 4-team 'playoff' that is as much of a beauty contest as the current BS Sham-pionship game.  We would like to thank you for your patience and for being so gullible."
