FAN BASED CF16 COALITION MEETS WITH PRESIDENT SCOTT COWEN - TULANE UNIVERSITY, TO DISCUSS NEW COLLEGE FOOTBALL PLAYOFF FORMAT
ATLANTA, GEORGIA - August 5, 2003 (Send2Press Newswire) --
With a 16 team
college football playoff system, a true national champion will be
determined on the field and not by monopolistic business deals or
computers such as the current Bowl Championship Series (BCS).
Mark Pedersen, Executive Director of the CF16 Coalition, said, "CF16 is a
non-profit organization focused on protecting the sanctity of college
football and thousands of student-athlete scholarships at risk due to the
unfair and rigged BCS system. Just a few weeks ago, Tulane University's
board voted to determine whether or not they should keep their athletics
program due to financial losses in that department. If eliminated,
approximately 85 student-athlete scholarships could have been lost and
Tulane alumni and fans could have lost their 110 year old football
tradition. We can't allow this to happen all over the country."
"Because of the emotional loyalty to a particular college or university,
millions of fans across the United States and thousands of college
football student-athletes are being cheated because of the current BCS
monopoly and structure, including current BCS affiliated schools,"
The CF16 Coalition supports the newly organized Presidential Coalition for
Athletics Reform (PCAR), started by Dr. Scott Cowen, President of Tulane
University. The PCAR Coalition is comprised of 44 non-BCS universities
seeking a more equitable post season playoff solution versus the current
BCS system and additional athletic-academic reforms. "President Cowen
and I have met and share similar goals for change," Pedersen added.
"The CF16 playoff initiative states that, because of its unique character,
college football is a very different product in the marketplace and is
impossible to replace. The March Madness of the 64-team NCAA Basketball
Tournament is also irreplaceable. Why should it be any different for
CF16 is dedicated to becoming the voice of the millions of disenfranchised
fans across the country who want to see a college football playoff system
implemented for Div I-A. To read about the CF16 Plan in detail and
