The only things standing in the way of a major college football playoff are 12 university presidents.
They figure to be more of a speed bump than a road block.
The BCS commissioners will present their four-team playoff proposal to the presidential oversight committee Tuesday in Washington.
The committee is headed by Virginia Tech's Charles W. Steger,
and includes one university leader from each of the 11 major
football conferences, and Notre Dame.
Whether approval will come quickly or the presidents will take
some time to mull over the proposal, maybe toss it back for tweaks,
is unknown. But it is safe to say the men who have spent hours upon
hours hashing this out over the last six months believe their
bosses will approve of their work.
