BCS hilarity continues

The @insidethebcs Twitter feed is at it again, linking to a Time magazine article with this foreword:

We have our critics, but thought this may be of interest:,8599,1941662,00.html?xid=rss-topstories

The article is about the new BCS executive director and entitled, "Can a good guy fix college football's worst thing?"

And this is what @insidethebcs deemed to be a positive article.

But wait, there's more! The article includes statements like:

By championing the BCS system, created a decade ago by a cartel of college presidents and commissioners from the country's elite athletic institutions, Hancock is essentially defending the OPEC of college football.


You can certainly pick apart Hancock's arguments for keeping the BCS.

And the final sentence:

And maybe you can do many of [Hancock's] admirers a favor, and convince him to get out of this BCS business.

And @insidethebcs actually brought this article to our attention. I probably wouldn't have read it had they not, since like most bloggers I live in my mother's basement and my only goal in life is to destroy print media. Mwahahaha!

I'm loving this. The fact that Bill Hancock, an "admired" man in USOC circles, was so willing to jump into this BCS firestorm, shows you just how out of touch the elites who run our sports are with the people who consume it.
