Plus-one doesn't mean plus one mid-major

The article presents the author's views on developments related to college football. The latest round of appeasement came last month. A promise here, a gesture there. SEC commissioner Mike Slive, the new director of the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), declared he would look into all possibilities for tweaking college football's postseason--including the dreaded plus-one championship game. Fresh off the best-ever BCS championship game, one should remember that the BCS is taking a new step next season. The series moves from four to five BCS games--with the stated goal of allowing greater access to mid-major teams. However, the author feels that very little is going to change, other than the amount of money in the pockets of the BCS schools.
