Head Coach of the University of Oklahoma football team
Con to the question "Should College Football Replace the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) with a Playoff System?"
"In basketball there is far less interest in the regular season than there is in the tournament. Everyone gets March Madness for the tournament. You don't want everyone to get January madness for football and forget about everything else that's happening in the regular season.
I think basically we are in a playoff the last half of the year in the regular season... People from coast to coast are watching each other because if anyone slips, you're going to be out..."
