In life, timing is everything. With the college football season nearing its end making way for the annual bashing of who should get the nod for the BCS title game, the time is ripe to bring in someone to absorb the bashing. Enter the new BCS
executive director fall guy, Bill Hancock.
If your memory serves you well, you’ll remember we discussed the possibility of the BCS creating such a position less than a month ago. And at that point, it was just a mere consideration. But with Florida, Alabama, Texas, Cincinnati, TCU, and Boise State all beating their chests as the best team in the nation, a consideration seemed to have turned into something mandatory.
Now, let’s see just what your new sworn enemy will have on his plate on a daily basis.
In the new post, Hancock will manage the daily operations of the BCS, interact with bowl organizations and TV rights holders and serve as the organization’s primary spokesperson. The promotion came out of a recommendation by the BCS commissioners last month. It was formally approved by the BCS Presidential Oversight Committee, which met Monday in Washington, D.C.
Yep, sounds like a fall guy. Good luck, Mr. Hancock. You are now college football’s public enemy #1.
