    I'm not sure I understand what this means, but I feel like we're pulling a Texas on college football. Some are more equal.

    Is the SEC still pissed that a Mountain West team beat them in a BCS bowl?

    This seemed likely to happen with or without the NCAA. This way, the NCAA can keep its hands in football.

    Thought the same thing. The days of us losing recruiting battles to non BCS teams may be numbered. Even a BSU would be on the outside looking in. I guess for kids with family $ it may not influence their decision but I would venture to bet that 90% of the high 3* and above athletes would be swayed by the additional $ support.

    This is exactly right. I think this has the potential to really help CU, because we have a higher cost of living here, so we can "pay" more to the athletes. And even though it's expensive to live in Boulder, we all know there are ways to do things very cheaply there, too.

    And schools like CSU are officially screwed. Utah and TCU just got in under the wire, it would seem.

    It really helps CU?

    I think it has the potential to, yes. OTOH, it may not make any difference at all. We can do more to help our own situation than the NCAA can, but I think this could be a good thing for us. Figure there are a certain number of BCS quality recruits every year. A percentage of those go to non-BCS schools. That percentage will *likely* go down as a result of this. CU is one of the places where those recruits would likely end up.

    Hard for me to see it any other way than that. Especially while we are not consistently winning recruiting battles against the likes of Boise State. Assuming we get back to a winning tradition it may be less of a factor because I assume by then we will be battling more head to head with BCS teams for virtually all of our recruits. In that case it's presumably a wash.

    It helps CU in one way-basically driving home the point that we need to get our **** together sooner rather than later. In all aspects.
    Selecting the haves and the have nots, and then saying we can now out-recruit the have nots is missing the big picture.
