The Chron had a real nice interview with Sandy Barbour over the weekend.
We only have 1 player (so far) in Ted Miller's Top 30 Pac 10 players (and we're at # 10)
Q: Under Tedford, the football team has become a Pac-10 contender. But it has beaten USC only once and has yet to play in the Rose Bowl. What else needs to happen for the team to get to a BCS bowl?
A: What Jeff has done has been amazing. The transformation of our football program under his leadership has been absolutely phenomenal. And then to realize he's done it with not just substandard facilities but sub-sub-sub-standard facilities. I think the facility is the next piece to be able to attract the very best. That's the piece that helps us help Jeff mold us to the next level.
Q: Are you confident that when the project is done that you'll be in the hunt for a BCS bowl berth?
A: Absolutely. I think we're in the hunt for a BCS bowl in the short run. But I don't believe Jeff could sustain that without the necessary facilities. He's been able to do what he's done because of the promise of that. ... I never had any doubt it would happen. I just wondered what kind of damage would be done along the way in terms of how long it would take. Would Jeff get frustrated and leave? I never really felt that would happen because he kept telling me, "I'm committed." But if it had gone on another two years, that would have been difficult.
Q: Would you like to see a Division I football playoff system, or are you content with the BCS and the bowl structure?
A: This is going to sound strange, but I'm OK either way.
