Pac-12 Confidential

Bud Withers offers an inside look at the Pac-12 Conference and the national college scene.

Moving and shaking in Pasadena

Bowl Championship Series commissioners are meeting this week in Pasadena, with the backdrop of the 2014 season’s first four-team playoff looming. (We have one more season of the BCS.)

Tuesday, they came up with a name for their 2012 creation — the College Football Playoff. If you were hoping for the football equivalent of the Final Four as a moniker, you were disappointed. The first title game will be at Jerry Jones’  Texas palace — no doubt between an SEC team and somebody else.

Still to be determined is the selection committee — football’s equivalent to basketball’s 10-person committee. Football’s is expected to have 14-20 members, but the composition of that committee may not be known until late in the year.

Late on this, but here’s a good USA Today story that ran earlier this week on the viability of the NCAA going forward as a governing body for the powers of college football. There’s more than a little speculation that the high rollers of the game — say, the BCS conferences — could break away from NCAA control. Even though there are myriad problems with the NCAA, it’s a little hard to imagine a world without it — somebody, something has to govern those breakaway people, don’t they? — but it could happen.
