Texas is following Oregon with the push for change. For Texas, it's contingent on 4 other states jumping on board.

While the 16 team demand seems like alot (many would have no problem with 8 teams or perhaps a 12 team playoff with the top 4 teams getting first round byes), it's a good step forward.

Persoanlly, I'd like to see the following states get on board. If these 5 states went through with this, change WOULD occur:

Texas: has schools that are...
BCS Members: Big XII
Non-BCS: CUSA, MWC, Sunbelt

BCS: ACC, SEC, Big East
Non-BCS: CUSA, Sunbelt

Only Pac-10 members UO and OSU

BCS: Big Ten, Big East


These 5 states would include high profile members from all 6 BCS confereces as well as the WAC, MWC, CUSA, MAC and Sunbelt conferences...all of I-A.

Bravo !!! -

This will probably fail, but who knows ?

It's an attempt toward moving this mess toward a goal that almost all college football fans support.

I personally think the system should include 16 teams rather than 8, as 8 has the potential to exclude a worthy claimant to the title (i.e. undefeated / untied Boise State last year). I'm not sure that every confence champion (such as the Sun-Belt champion) deserves an automatic bid... but they DO at least deserve a chance to qualify for an at-large slot any time they meet certain performance criteria (such as undefeated / untied).

So I applaud the legislators for attempting to bust this unseemly cartel known as the BCS.

"...If at least four other states [out of 12 earmarked states] enact a similar law before Dec. 1, the law would stay in effect for Texas schools, according to the bill.

The other states are Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Michigan, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon, South Carolina and Washington."
