You may not know this about me, but aside from my love for the NBA, I also have a great deal of love for college football (I went to the University of Texas, that should explain it pretty easily). As a college football fan, I am decidedly on the pro-playoff, anti-BCS side. Anything that will help lead to the destruction of the BCS and the creation of a method of determining a true champion, I am completely in favor of.
Which is why it warmed my heart yesterday to read a story on ESPN.com with the headline “Mark Cuban exploring BCS alternative.”
Cuban, the outspoken owner of the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, told ESPNDallas.com on Wednesday that he is “actively interested but in the exploratory stage” of creating and funding a playoff system to crown a champion for major college football.
Ummm, yes please.
Mark, please consider me at your service to help in this cause. Whatever you need, I am your humble servant.
