    Default Cuban trying to break BCS with cash

    Cuban considers trying to break BCS with cash

    [IMGL]http://i51.tinypic.com/1116kpx.jpg[/IMGL]NEW YORK (AP) - BCS executive director Bill Hancock says he doubts "financial inducements," such as the one Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is considering, will not lead to a major college football playoff.

    Cuban told ESPNDallas.com on Wednesday that he was "actively interested but in the exploratory stage" of trying to bankroll a 12- or 16-team playoff that would replace the controversial Bowl Championship Series.

    Hancock responded to Cuban's comments in an e-mail to the AP on Thursday, saying, "Given how much support our current system has among university presidents, athletics directors, coaches and athletes, I don't think any amount of financial inducement will make people abandon" the BCS.

    At least Cuban got himself in the headlines again! Since this didn't work out, maybe he can talk about buying the Pirates again with no intention to do so!
