BOWL COALITION CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES NATIONAL PLAYOFF GAME

          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).
