College Nugget – Nebraska chancellor Harvey Perlman made it clear, in an interview with ESPN.com Big Ten blogger Adam Rittenberg, that the presidents and chancellors of the schools in their conferences will determine what the postseason will look like in 2014 and beyond.  In July of 2009, Perlman said, “What I think most people don’t understand is that the alternative to the current system is not a playoff.  The alternative to the BCS is going back to our traditional relationship with our bowl partners.”  Hopefully, Perlman is speaking for all of the college football big wigs.
