Is Georgia president Michael Adams the man to bring a playoff to college football? Adams, who is the chairman of the powerful NCAA executive committee, has drawn up plans for an eight-team playoff, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Adams' goal is to have a playoff system in place within "a year or two" and believes his chances of getting the proposal passed are "at least 50-50."
In a letter to the NCAA, Adams writes that he is disturbed by the current system, including "The increasing concentration of power in one network television company that has shown in this year's bowl selection process the capacity to influence public opinion, including that of the coaches, in an arbitrary way. This one network ownership controls more than two-thirds of the football games broadcast and virtually all of the non-BCS bowls. There are clear built-in conflicts."
