Gene Wojciechowski Biography
||Senior National Columnist for ESPN.com
||Pro to the question "Should College Football Replace the Bowl Championship Series (BCS)
with a Playoff System?"
"Presidents Get Playoff Plan Right," ESPN.com, June 26, 2012
"This is a momentous day in the history of college football. And thanks to Tuesday's final ratifying vote by the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee, a manageable, logical and lonnnnnnnng overdue playoff system makes the traveling squad in 2014.
The BCS Championship is about to be euthanized -- may it soon rest in peace. Gone are the ridiculous polls, the computer standings and the automatic qualifier status extended to favored conferences...
Seriously, what's there not to like? The bowl system lives. The regular season isn't compromised. Tradition survives."
