BCS presidents meeting: The time is now

WASHINGTON, D.C . -- About a dozen reporters gathered in the lobby at the Dupont Circle Hotel as conference commissioners and members of the presidential oversight committee filed into a small boardroom to determine the future of college football.

A brief hello from Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott and a handshake from ACC commissioner John Swofford were about all the interaction with the media. The men walked briskly through the small crowd of cameras and into the meeting room where the conference commissioners will present a four-team playoff proposal to university presidents.

With the exception of the small crowd of reporters, there was little fanfare surrounding the meeting that could change college football as we know it. It's expected to be a lengthy meeting, but the door is closed to the public. Even the conference commissioners are going to be expected to leave the room when the presidents discuss the proposal. Stay tuned for updates.
