BCS Reportedly Wants Out Of Non-Championship Business

The BCS as we know it will only last for two more years. This is not news, as a new contract must be agreed upon for 2014 and on, but the construction of the next championship game occupation could look quite different than what we have at the moment. Gene Wojciechowski reports, there's an informal proposal among BCS leadership to give up all BCS games besides the title game.

That would free the Rose, Sugar, Fiesta, and Orange to invite their own pairings. Each would still work to maintain some conference allegiances -- the Rose would still want the Big Ten and Pac-12 champions -- but none would be required to take any teams beyond those obligated by its conference deals. 

More importantly, it would also do away with automatic BCS qualification for the winners of anointed conferences.

Big 12 commissioner Chuck Neinas and BCS patriarch Roy Kramer have supported eliminating the collective's AQ provisions. Out of the goodness of their hearts and only for the sake of the nation's smaller programs, of course. There's speculation (there is!) that this is all a move to break up the college football postseason monopoly as Congress grows more and more interested by the year.
