Univ. Of Georgia President Criticizes Big Ten, Pac-12 BCS Plan
Published April 10, 2012
EVERY MAN FOR HIMSELF: YAHOO SPORTS’ Graham Watson wrote, “I agree that changing the rules to accommodate the Pac-12 and Big Ten is ludicrous and unfair to teams that worked hard to get into the top four spots and actually deserve to be in the playoff.” But Adams “isn’t exactly championing the sanctity of fair college football, rather trying to protect the SEC from getting aced out of a national championship or an extra playoff berth.” Watson wrote while a four-team playoff “might not be the perfect solution, at least it's [a] step in the right direction and a step toward a fair way of picking a national champion.” Adding in a special provision for the Rose Bowl and the Pac-12 and Big Ten “would diminish any progress toward a fair system” (SPORTS.YAHOO.com, 4/9).
