A college football playoff system seems to be coming much closer to fruition after plenty of complaints over the past several years. The Pac-12 is the latest conference to seemingly agree that change is needed as far the NCAA football postseason is concerned.
It isn't a surprise, of course, but the Register-Guard's George Schroeder quoted a Pac-12 insider with some positive comments regarding a playoff system in his Tuesday morning column.
We're not sure what form it will take -- no one is at this point -- but when the next BCS TV deal kicks in two years from now, well, there might not even be a BCS. Whatever it's called, it won't much resemble the current postseason structure.
"I would be shocked if it doesn't get significantly changed."
Those words come from a Pac-12 insider who didn't want to be identified. The league's commissioner was traveling Tuesday and unavailable for comment. On Monday, Scott told the San Jose Mercury News the Pac-12 "has stopped short of taking a position" on potential changes.
Schroeder's report coincides with the Arizona State president saying last week that the Pac-12 isn't a strong supporter of the present model.
It certainly isn't a surprise that the Pac-12 would be in favor of some sort of change -- there are quite a few reports that have adamantly said change is coming -- but it's nice to know that they seemingly won't hold anything up.
