The 11 college football commissioners who make up the BCS, along with Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, met for the past two days about the direction in which to take the college football post-season.
Among the topics up for discussion are the creation of a four game playoff to determine the national championship, in addition to moving the bowl games closer to the traditional New Year's Day schedule, and not spreading them out a week following.
The commissioners and Swarbrick issued the following statement after their meetings.
"In an effort to grow college football's great popularity and success, we just completed two days of productive meetings in Dallas, Texas."
"We have until the fall of this year to finalize any possible changes to our current structure. That's when contractual obligations require us to begin negotiations with our television carrier for future coverage decisions. We have a self-imposed deadline of sometime this summer to decide what changes we will propose to our governing bodies for football's post-season. It's still early in our process and we will continue to meet with our conferences and review options."
