How to divide bigger pie becomes focus of BCS g...April 17, 2012 6:05 pm
So . . . the Conferences want a BIGGER piece of the pie . . .
Well to be honest, the BCS Conferences do get the biggest part of the pie . . . and if they want MORE PIE, then make more pies!
It is pretty well know that most of the Bowls feature schools/teams from the BCS conferences. Yeah, a Boise State or Utah gets in there once in a while, and frankly, they did EARN the BCS placement they received, and should not be berated for having achieved this goal.
Now you all know about my book, December Dream . . . Qualifying for the Final BCS Rankings [www.bbotw.com or just go back and read all the blogs on my profile].
In my book I set it up to be a three pie situation, rather than the current two pie situation that we currently have. More pie = more dollars!
My proposal has a standard 11 [yes eleven game schedule] games against preset opponets. And YES, in my scenario there is a 12th game of the regular season, but this game is, and again the litney of #1 hosts #2, #3 hosts #4, #5 hosts #6, etc. all the way down to #119 hosting #120, or at least as many scvhools/teams as there are Bowl Breths to fill.
This 12th Game IS THE THIRD PIE!!!!
Perhaps it should be organized and run by the NCAA, just like the basketball March Madness. Let the NCAA distribute these monetary treasures as determined by the best Television and Radio contract they can negotiate.
And of course, the other PIE is the BCS Bowl, and the other bowls as well.
And don't forget . . . the reason the Rose Bowl is always touted so highly in all of the discussions is the mear fact that before the BCS Bowls being established, the Rose Bowl always had the Highest payout to the schools/teams that played in that game. That's why the SEC always eyeball the Rose Bowl as the treasure it has always been.
