Podcast: Life to the BCS

The release of the first BCS standings, coinciding with the debut of new book Death to the BCS, has everyone talking about the perceived flaws in college football's playoff-less postseason. We've already talked to author Dan Wetzel about why we need to junk the BCS. Bill Hancock, executive director of the BCS, discuss the merits of the system with Homerism and why the BCS is worth keeping alive.

Bill and I cover:

  • the flaws in both the human polls and computer rankings;
  • the possibility that schools are leaving money on the table by not having a playoff;
  • a playoff's impact on the regular season; and
  • the economics of the minor  bowls.
