Kramer talked to CBSSports.com's Dennis Dodd about it a few weeks ago, and on Wednesday he stopped by the Tim Brando Show to further discuss the possibilities.

VIDEO: Brett McMurphy talks playoff system

Posted by Chip Patterson

CBSSports.com's Brett McMurphy and Dennis Dodd have been reporting from the BCS meetings this week in Dallas, as many of the decision-makers in college football debate the best postseason format for the sport.

The 11 conference commissioners, Notre Dame athletic director Jack Swarbrick, two BCS officials and a BCS attorney have begun discussing the possibility of a plus-one format to determine the BCS National Champion. The current BCS contract ends after the 2013-14 season, allowing for a new format beginning with the 2014 regular season.

On Friday, Brett McMurphy joined Tim Brando to discuss the momentum behind the BCS plus-one format.

VIDEO: Rodriguez still has 'the hunger to coach'

Posted by Chip Patterson

Former West Virginia and Michigan head coach Rich Rodriguez admits he has enjoyed his time as an analyst for CBS Sports Network. But that does not mean he has given up on the idea of returning to coaching.

"I still have the hunger to coach," Rodriguez told Tim Brando on Tuesday's edition of the Tim Brando Show. "We'll see what happens in the next three or four weeks."

Rodriguez and Brando discussed the challenges of coaching at a place like Ole Miss, where you are competing with some of the best programs in the nation. Rich Rod, along with former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach, have been some of the names immediately tied to both current and future vacancies all over the FBS. Check out the video below to hear Rodriguez weigh in on life as an analyst, and his thoughts on dealing with the legalities of former employers.

VIDEO: Mike Leach a good fit for Ole Miss?

Posted by Chip Patterson

Former Texas Tech coach Mike Leach has made it clear he is ready to get back into coaching. His name was mentioned frequently as a possible replacement at Maryland and Miami last season, and he has already been identified as a possible target for FAU, Tulane, and Arizona. With Ole Miss head coach Houston Nutt's eventual dismissal at season's end now evident, some are wondering if Leach could end up in the SEC.

As our own Tom Fornelli wrote on Tuesday, Leach has expressed interest in the Ole Miss job to The Commercial Appeal. He spoke highly of the position, and reminded everyone that "I'm not too hard to find" if the search committee were interested in Leach.  Mississippi has struggled to hang with an SEC West division that has grown stronger over the last half-decade, and the former Red Raiders coach might be just different enough from his colleagues to make the Rebels stand out among their peers.

SEC football writer Ron Higgins weighed in on the Ole Miss job opening with Tim Brando on Wednesday, including his opinion on Mike Leach's fit in Oxford.

Posted by Bryan Fischer

Missouri has a decision to make about what conference they'll be in for the forseeable future after the school's Board of Curators gave their chancellor the ok to pursue any and all options. Head coach Gary Pinkel jumped on the Tim Brando Show to give his thoughts about realignment and talk about where his program's future lies.

Gary Pinkel isn't a huge Dan Beebe fan

Posted by Tom Fornelli

The Big 12 has seemed to be on the brink of extinction for about a year now, even when it supposedly wasn't, and with Texas A&M being the latest school to leave, everybody is just sitting around waiting for the next shoe to drop. Is the Pac-12 going to swoop in to take Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas and Texas Tech? Could adding BYU save the Big 12?

We don't know. In fact, while there's plenty of speculation on the future, nobody knows much of anything for sure. Unless you're Missouri head coach Gary Pinkel. According to Pinkel, while he may not know what the future holds, he knows exactly who to blame for the past.

"Obviously, we have some issues in our league," said Pinkel while on Tim Brando's radio show on Friday. "When you have Nebraska leave one year. Colorado leaves. Also now Texas A&M. Three really good football teams. You know, we’ve got some issues. Without question there’s some issues that other leagues don’t have. You don’t hear anything about any other league in the country having these kind of problems. We all know where it starts. [Missouri athletic director] Mike Alden’s not the point man here. Dan Beebe is. Dan Beebe’s our commissioner. He’s the guy to ask. I don’t know what they’re going to do. I’m just focusing now on winning the football game.

"There’s just no one in the country, no other league in the country, where this stuff goes on. And it’s really a shame because the potential of the league is just so tremendous. Anyway, I have no control over it. We’re just trying to beat Miami (Ohio)."

How do you really feel, Gary?

While Pinkel doesn't come right out and say it, it's pretty clear that he lays the blame for what has happened to the Big 12, and what could happen in the Big 12, at the feet of Dan Beebe. Pinkel is just sharing feelings that many other Big 12 schools have felt privately for a while, and that is that they don't appreciate the way Beebe has treated Texas compared to the way the rest of the schools are treated. And it's hard to blame any other Big 12 school not named Texas or Oklahoma for feeling that way.
