ISL VP Jim Wheeler met with the NCAA Football Issues committee to pitch a Div. I-A football playoff worth $2.4B, according to Wendell Barnhouse of the FT. WORTH STAR- TELEGRAM. Syracuse AD Jake Crouthamel: "It was a sharing of information. We felt that as a group we needed to hear what he had to say." ISL's plan would be "worth" $300M a year for eight years. WAC Commissioner Karl Benson: "The amount of money mentioned has gotten everybody's attention. This is the first time anybody has actually put money on the table." Wheeler would "not get into the specifics," but the plan "deals with the problem of maintaining the bowl system along with a playoff" (FT. WORTH STAR-TELEGRAM, 2/9).
