The BCS talks have already reached the semifinals.  Further insinuating a 4-team playoff will become a reality.

"Having carefully reviewed calendars and schedules, we believe that either an eight-team or a 16-team playoff would diminish the regular season and harm the bowls," the BCS said in a statement. "College football's regular season is too important to diminish and we do not believe it's in the best interest of student-athletes, fans, or alumni to harm the regular season.

The real questions are going to be decided on in the next few weeks and I suspect those questions and answers will revolve around Money. Namely, "Is it possible to make more money?" and  Can BCS leagues further concentrate their share of  money/prestige?"

After meetings Thursday, BCS spokesman Bill Hancock said the sport's 11 FBS conference commissioners would take "two to seven" playoff proposals -- each involving four teams -- back to their respective university presidents, athletic directors and coaches to discuss for the next five to seven weeks.
BCS officials and conference commissioners are scheduled to meet in Chicago again in June.


Army's home kickoff times have been announced. No surprise with the nooners, CBS College sports seems to have Army/Navy locked into their respective time designations.

Cool, 9:00 AM Pacific time, noted.
