"Tonight, my butt's sore." - Mike Krzyzewski 11-29-11
AUSTIN -- Texas athletics director and longtime playoff proponent DeLoss Dodds is ready for college football to stop tiptoeing around the Big Ten and Pacific-12 conferences and their fierce loyalty to the Rose Bowl.
If that's what is holding off a move to even a limited playoff -- and Dodds says he thinks it is -- then he advocates a parting of ways in the postseason. Let those two leagues cling to their more than six-decade partnership with the Rose, and allow the rest of the country to settle the national championship as it sees fit.
"The only way it's going to get fixed," Dodds says, "is for the rest of the country to have a playoff of some kind and let them do their (own) deal. And then after five years, their coaches would go berserk because they're not in the mix for a national championship. And they'd have to join it."
