    Is 5 team 2 year league possible???

    I've read that the BCS contract goes through 2014. If all these teams leave in 2012, would it be possible to have the five remaining schools play each other twice in home and homes and the champion getting auto BCS bid, and forcing the other bowls to honor their bowl tie-ins???? Fourth place goes to Alamo bowl, not bad for second to last. If you can cash those checks why wouldn't the five remaining schools push off joining the mwc or whatever until 2014 and cashing those checks and hoping for a possible better invite to a BCS conference. That money and the money for the teams leaving is a pretty descent severence package. Is this a realistic option???

    hmmm...I think there is a rule about having 6 remaining teams to keep it...but it sounds like a pretty good idea if we can do it.

    Even if it were possible, which I don't think it is, we would be the laughing stock of college football.

    We could find a sixth team: UNO. Heck SMU or Rice might do it for the money.

    You could get a sixth team to agree easily, especially if you agreed to pool all tv, and bowl winnings together and distrubutive evenily.

    So when KSU or whoever is 4-8 and not bowl elibible they can still get the 4th place bowl selection? That'll go over well.
