Andy Staples says Big East’s additions underwhelming; BCS likely to add plus-one
Staples said that the Big East’s additions won’t be enough to keep automatic qualifying status if such a thing exists in the future. Staples said that now they’re Conference USA in 2004.
Staples thinks when the new BCS system comes into play in a couple of years, it will get rid of the automatic qualifying system.
Staples also said that he thinks a Plus-one system is coming soon to college football. He said conferences are getting behind it.
Staples said that there could be a split champion this year in the AP poll if LSU loses. Staples pointed out LSU won in Alabama, which is tougher than winning on a neutral field.
