Florida's Meyer weighs in on BCS system

Florida coach Urban Meyer chuckled earlier this week when told that Texas Tech coach Mike Leach had a proposal for a 64-team playoff in college football.

"Mike is one of my great friends," Meyer said. "He's probably the only football coach with the cognitive ability to put one together. The head-football coach at Florida certainly can't."

Meyer's biggest beef with the current BCS system is that it's a "bunch of conferences with a bunch of separate agendas."

In particular, Meyer doesn't like the fact that some conferences have a championship game and some don't. The SEC, ACC and Big 12 all play conference championship games. The Big Ten, Pac-10 and Big East don't.

"Put restrictions on it and make every conference do what every other conference does," Meyer said.
