Jim Delaney calls it a slippery slope that will destroy the bowl system (well, duh) and harm the regular season (not sure why).
From his interview with the Chicago Tribune:
Two areas of potential improvement: Kill the automatic bids (and two-bid-per-conference restriction) that allow the Big East’s West Virginia(No. 23 in the BCS) and the ACC’s Clemson (No. 14) to play in BCS bowl games over the likes of Arkansas(6) and Boise State (7).
“There are 10 access points in the BCS, and when you attain one, it’s seen as affirmation,” Delany said.
And play the BCS title game closer to New Year’s Day.
“I think we need to do everything we can to explore that,” Delany said. “It’s a pretty high priority for the presidents and commissioners. Whether we can get the (BCS title game) up to Jan. 2 or Jan. 3, I don’t know. But right now it’s not good for anyone – student-athletes because of the academic calendar, fans who work and want to travel to the game.”
Ha. He said “student-athletes,” as if that’s what this is about. And, yes, moving the title game will solve all the ills.
