We've yet to find the NCAA's clear path into the Penn State scandal, but you just knew the BCS would be affected in one way or another. Former school president Graham Spanier, who resigned hours before a Board of Trustees house-cleaning press conference, was the Big Ten's BCS representative and chairman of the BCS presidential oversight committee.
He won't be replaced immediately, as BCS executive director* Bill Hancock told CBS Sports. The process could take weeks and will likely be left up to computers that don't account for degrees of success and interviews with people who've never observed the candidates. I only made up the last two parts.
The oversight committee includes one rep from each FBS conference, including the presidents of Alabama, USC, and Notre Dame. They meet to talk about BCS stuff.
* As always, you can leave out that title. Bill Hancock is the entire BCS.
