BCS format here to stay until 2013

We live in a world where only the top two teams play for the National Championship. In this case, it's the same two teams that played each other last month.

LSU beat Alabama once, and will have to do it again to claim the BCS title.

The team ranked third, Oklahoma State, is on the outside looking in, and if you're hoping that might change in the future, don't hold your breath.

Mark Emmert, the NCAA president, is concerned that a playoff format might be too hard on student-athletes.

"Depending on what the playoff model looks like, you could have kids playing 16 games," stated Emmert.

President Emmert says the debate may lead to some changes when the current BCS format expires in 2013.

He says one of the biggest challenges is fitting in all the bowl games between mid-December and when the winter term begins.

Emmert said, "That becomes a demand physically that's enormous for these students. It becomes a huge academic strain on them because you're playing through finals and into the next semester. Trying to fit a 16 team playoff into that calendar would be pretty bloody tough."

Emmert says this is always the time of year when football fans debate the merits who gets a shot at the title and who doesn't.

It's safe to say that LSU and Alabama fans like the current format.
