Earlier this week there was optimism in the college football world as the BCS conference commissioners gathered together for their annual meeting. The centerpiece for discussion being the "Plus-One" format to push college football ever closer to a playoff system. But then it appeared to everyone that big bad Jim Delany wasn't going to let it happen.
Booo! Booo Jim Delany! Boo the Big Ten, Pac-10, and Rose Bowl Axis of Evil! Booo! Everyone on the planet can see the benefit of a college football playoff! Just ask the Big IX!
Huh. Well what does the Big East think?
Oh. Well surely the smaller conferences must be frustrated by this. The little guy is getting screwed here.
Hmmm. Ok. Well there's Notre Dame. They have God on their side. When the Irish speak, the college football world moves to their bidding, right?
Well how about that.
And any chance of a college football playoff is dead, at least for a long, long time.
I'm not a big fan of Jim Delany's, but it's evident he's not the lone voice of obstruction against the college football playoff. There are too many people making too much money off of the BCS cash cow. And like Notre Dame AD Kevin White says, if it ain't broke they ain't going to fix it.
