BCS executive director Bill Hancock joined Sports180 on Thursday to talk about this year’s performances and results in the BCS.

Bill said several things to cause us to disagree. Two examples:

-On TCU having a more difficult time getting to the BCS title game compared to schools from a BCS conference: “Their road to the title game, I don’t believe is more difficult than the others. You look at it, Boise State was a heartbeat away from being in the title game this year from the non-AQ group.”

-On the Sugar Bowl benefiting from Ohio State’s suspended players being able to play in the game: “I think even if those players had not played, the stadium was almost full and I think it would have been even if they hadn’t played. I think the national interest in the game would have still been the same. I just don’t buy that there was any benefit to the game significantly or to TV or to college football in general from them having been there as opposed to not playing.”
