...at least until 2014. That was the consensus of the BCS commissioners today at their Florida meeting. SEC Commissioner Mike Slive made his pitch, with the help of ACC Commish John Swofford, but it didn't even come up for a vote.
In fact, the SEC and the ACC were the only conferences who wanted to continue discussing a possible playoff system. Today was the first time Big East Commissioner Mike Tranghese and Big 12 Commissioner Dan Beebe indicated that their leagues are against a BCS playoff system.
2014 is the next logical time that a change of format can be realistically looked at , since that will be when the ABC-Pac 10/Big 10/Rose Bowl TV pact runs out, and Fox is expected to negotiate an extension on the rest of the BCS TV package this fall that will also run through 2013.
