The last thing the BCS wants is any reason to look into its system beyond a bunch of sports geeks who demand a playoff. These guys do not want the law peering into their business.
When BCS mouthpiece Bill Hancock says the Fiesta Bowl could lose its BCS status, he's not kidding.
Amid the reports that Fiesta Bowl CEO John Junker has been canned after multiple probes revealed what most of us long ago figured - he stole money, or used his game to really blow a lot of cash.
The story illustrates what a corrupt system the bowls are. And if we think the Fiesta Bowl and its CEO are the only one doing this we are all very, very ... not bright.
On a local level, if the BCS decides to junk the Fiesta Bowl, it opens the door for Jerry World to be in the BCS. Jerry wants a BCS game in Arlington. One of the primary reasons the Cotton Bowl game moved out of Fair Park was to enhance its standings for the BCS.
The BCS reviews its precious little games every four years, and dump the Fiesta Bowl to avoid any further bad publicity. Jerry World would likely be the most attractive location to replace the Fiesta Bowl.
Perhaps maybe if Jerry gets this game all of the seats will be installed properly by kickoff.
