    "The last time changes were considered was 2008. That’s when Slive, with the support of Atlantic Coast Conference Commissioner John Swofford, made a push for the plus-one model to the rest of the group.

    Slive’s proposal was unceremoniously shot down.

    Standing in the way of the plus-one last time were the Big Ten, Pac-10, Big East and Big 12."

    continuing...

    "Since then, the Pac-10 has become the Pac-12 and it has a new commissioner, Larry Scott, who has quickly established himself as one of the most forward-thinking leaders in college sports. Previous commissioner Tom Hansen was adamantly against a plus-one.

    The Big 12 has an interim commissioner, with Chuck Neinas replacing the ousted Dan Beebe, who was a vocal opponent of any type of playoff. The embattled Big East has a new commissioner, too. John Marinatto has been busy trying to save his league, and it’s doubtful the conference is in a position to be a force in the upcoming BCS negotiations.

    What hasn’t changed is the Big Ten’s stance, led by its influential commissioner, Jim Delany.

    Delany is steadfastly against a full-blown playoff and has said his biggest fear with the plus-one would be that once a four-team playoff becomes a reality it would inevitably grow.
    "


    Seriously, why is the Big10 so scared of a playoff???

    So Michigan and Ohio State can have a rematch for the Natl championship when one of them loses by 3 points at home in their annual conference matchup.

    Too bad neither of them are relevant at the same times.

    Urban Meyer, the Ohio man vs Brady Hoke, the MICHIGAN man. It's already relevant. I anticipate that game much more than the game tonight. Its funny, not one word has been mentioned about the game tonight at work today. Its like no one even cares and rightfully so. I don't really care about the game tonight. Sportscenter will tell me everything I need to know about the exhibition game.

    Just remember, you guys will be wasting 3-4 hours of your lives watching an exhibition game which might as well be a re-enactment of 1940s offense where both teams did nothing but run the ball and punt.

    I wonder what else you could do with that time... Plant a tree? Call your congressman? Do an energy audit? Or you can watch two teams play a meaningless game?

    I read that whole article and as usual Alex the Liar is making up things. Didn't see the word "scared" anywhere. Quit making things up straw man.
