1. In the wake of the Sugar Bowl’s decision to overlook No. 7 Boise State and No. 8 Kansas State, one suggestion being discussed for the next BCS contract is to obligate the BCS bowls to take the highest-ranked available team rather than have the ability to choose an at-large team. The bowls surely will balk, and may cry antitrust. But no one is forcing them to be in the BCS. Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott wouldn’t address that idea specifically but said, "There are things we all see that could be better." 2. A plus-one will be discussed at the BCS meetings next spring but it will take a unanimous vote of the six AQ conferences to implement it before the current contract with ESPN expires in two years. Even if they get that, there’s a bigger problem. The Cotton Bowl, the leading candidate for the fifth site, is on Fox for the next two years; the BCS is on ESPN.http://espn.go.com/blog/ncfnation/post/_/id/57415/3-point-stance-bcs-changes 2/3rds of Maisel's 3pt stance. I hope the Cotton Bowl throws a wrench into things in a good way. Perhaps a plus one is adopted, and Fox gets more control over the coverage in 2015.
