rly define the bowl-selection pr

  • 15 August 2019
    导出博客文章INDIANAPOLIS -- The NCAA has cleared up its bowl-selection process, assuring
    that no eligible teams with .500 records are passed over for postseason play in
    favor of more well-known schools with fewer than six wins.The new rule, which
    was implemented by the NCAAs Division I Council on Wednesday, will be put in
    place for the upcoming season and says bowl-eligible teams with 6-6 records must
    be selected for bowl games before any 5-7 teams are considered.The NCAAs
    football oversight committee first made the recommendation for the new rule to
    the council, following a season that saw only 77 teams eligible for the 80 bowl
    slots. The three remaining slots were filled by 5-7 teams -- Nebraska, Minnesota
    and San Jose State.Its impossible to project how many eligible bowl teams we
    will have, said Bob Bowlsby, chair of the football oversight committee and
    commissioner of the Big 12 Conference.We think we have a selection process in
    the postseason that makes sense and is fair to the schools and the bowls.The
    council placed a moratorium on new bowl games in April, assuring that no new
    games will be played before the 2020 season.Despite the hold on any postseason
    expansion, the NCAAs football oversight committee recommended the rule as a way
    to clearly define the bowl-selection process in the event last years lack of
    eligible teams proves to be an aberration.The council agreed, and it also
    defined the process by which any 5-7 teams would be considered for postseason
    play -- using the multiyear Academic Progress Rate in Football Bowl Subdivision
    as the selection criteria. Teams with the highest multiyear APR will be
    considered first, followed in descending order by others in the category.Should
    there be a tie in multiyear APR, the team with the highest score in the most
    recent single year will have the selection edge.Despite entering the postseason
    with sub-.500 records, Nebraska, Minnesota and San Jose State each won their
    bowl games last season.The Cornhuskers defeated UCLA in the Foster Farms Bowl,
    while Minnesota beat Central Michigan in the Quick Lane Bowl and San Jose State
    topped Georgia State in the Autonation Cure Bowl.

    . Howard Ganz, an MLB lawyer, said in a letter to U.S. District
    Judge Edgardo Ramos that Rodriguezs claims do not come "remotely close" to what
    is needed to overturn an arbitration decision in federal court.
    . The judges scored it 48-47, 48-47, 49-46 for Jones (19-1). It was the
    champions closest call. Despite the loss, it was a remarkable show by the
    confident Swedish challenger, who had the best of the early rounds and then hung
    on in the fourth and fifth.
