    UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO
    BOARD OF REGENTS

    MEETING AGENDA
    SECTION F. NOTICES OF MOTION

    2. Resolution Endorsing an NCAA Division 1 Football Bowl Series

    Does anyone know what this is about?

    It has been on the agenda/minutes since May of 2009.

    I'm curious if there is any correlation to this "resolution" and House Resolution 68 that was referred to House Judiciary Committee and the House Education and Labor Committee (and then referred to the Subcommittee on Higher Education, Lifelong Learning, and Competitiveness) on March 6, 2009.

    This would also fit the stream of events with the possibility of U.S. Dept of Justice taking the action to consider investigating the BCS for antitrust law violations.


    Are we on the verge of having an NCAA controlled postseason playoff and "bowl series"?

    Are the current power conferences realinging to put themselves in positions of power in a division of football that weeds out the MAC, WAC, and SunBelt teams so that a "playoff" cannot include those teams?

    If the federal government is taking on the issue, I doubt they're leaving it up to a regent vote at each school.

    This must be a sneaky cover for a regent vote on whether to accept an offer to join the Pac 10.

    :lol:

    What I would suspect in the playoff scenario is that the feds are putting pressure on the NCAA to solve the playoff problem so that they don't have to, or that it doesn't go to court for anti-trust or federal trade violations. The NCAA is a voluntary membership organization so they can only solve the issue by having their membership present and vote on a proposal, so if it does happen that way, every school will have to place such a proposal before their board or president.
