As BCS Administrator, Bill Hancock is the Bowl Championship Series' only employee. In his position, he is responsible for overseeing the weekly standings and is the spokesman for the BCS.

For 13 years, Mr. Hancock was the director of the Final Four of the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament, from 1989-2002. He left the NCAA to spend more time with his family after his son Will, a sports information director for Oklahoma State, died in the January 2001 plane crash that took the lives of 10 OSU athletes and officials.

Mr. Hancock returned to college sports in October 2005, when the BCS established his position. During our exclusive interview with Mr. Hancock, RCS asked the following six questions with follow-ups:

-- How much extra attention did President-Elect Obama bring to the BCS debate?

-- How will the new television contract with ESPN benefit the BCS?

-- Is there any movement to alter the BCS formula?

-- Are you concerned about a lack of transparency in the BCS?

-- How will the BCS weather the country's economic crisis?

-- Is the BCS here to stay?
