NEW YORK (AP) -- Defending the Bowl Championship Series and trying to convince critics that it is the best way to determine a college football champion has to qualify as one of the toughest jobs in America.
Bill Hancock now has that job.
Hancock, the former director of the NCAA Division I men's basketball tournament, was selected Tuesday to become the first executive director of the BCS.
Talk about a fall guy. I wonder if he realizes he has just been thrown to the wolves. The pay must be good why else would someone step into a job that is in the middle of a fight that they can not win. It's either that or this guy is just plain stupid. By tomorrow this guys face will be on every dart board, shooting target, and hate list in the country.
The sad part is the BCS has screwed college football over so bad that this guy has about as good a chance to convince fans the BCS works as USC has of going to the Rose Bowl this year.
