Pro to the question "Should College Football Replace the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) with a Playoff System?"
"Any sensible person would say that if you've got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season and many of them have one loss or two losses - there's no clear, decisive winner - that we should be creating a playoff system... It would add three extra weeks to the season. You could trim back on the regular season. I don't know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this... I think it's the right thing to do."
