Speaking with the press on Monday before the championship game between the Florida State Seminoles and the Auburn Tigers, BCS executive director Bill Hancock reflected on the past 16 years, describing the time as “a golden era for college football.”
I’m proud of our track record and I’m proud of the BCS. It matched No. 1 and 2, enhanced the regular reason, it improved the bowl system and it introduced new schools to top-tier bowl games.
Hancock also said he was pleased with how the 2014 BCS games played out:
It’s almost like the games themselves are saying, ‘We’re gonna go out, we’re gonna show ‘em, we’re going out on a high note,’ which is too mystical to even think about (USA Today Sports).
Hancock concluded by discussing the playoff system that will be implemented next season. He said that while the playoff committee wants to avoid rematches, “the integrity of the bracket will triumph” over manipulating the final standings.
