This isn't really news, but the TCJ reports that Frank Martin's entire staff will be joining him at South Carolina.
With the entire staff gone, Bruce Weber will have to start from scratch. By all indications, Chris Lowery will join as an assistant, but two other positions must be filled. Weber wants a coach with K-State ties, which leads to speculation that Steve Henson or Anthony Beane could be the pick.
The USA Today obtained a report outlining four possible scenarios to replace the BCS. Two are conventional four-team playoffs, one is an amended version of the BCS (a plus-one setup), and one is creating a ton of controversy. In this scenario, the top four teams would advance to the playoff, but if one of those teams was the Big 10 (we probably don't have to worry about that for a while) or Pac-12 champion, it would still play in the Rose Bowl against the champion of the other Chosen Conference. And if that happens, then the next team(s) in line move into the mix to play one of the top four teams. SB Nation takes a look at what a system like this would have looked like the last five years, in case you're a visual learner.
The bottom line? There will be a new college football system, and you know what that means: K-State will be absolutely screwed in the most painful way possible at some point in the next five years.
Missouri athletic director Mike Alden, among others, want to push Cinderella out of the NCAA Tournament. KU fans rejoice.
