OXNARD, Calif. — Jerry Jones doesn’t like to repeat his good sound bites, so he found a new way to say Jason Garrett isn’t coaching for his job.

The Dallas Cowboys owner said Wednesday it wasn’t a “make or break” season for Garrett, a year after opening training camp by declaring that last season wouldn’t be “Armageddon” for his coach if the once-proud franchise missed the playoffs again.

The Cowboys have identical endings to all three full seasons under Garrett, losing to NFC East rivals to finish 8-8 and miss the playoffs.

IRVING — Conference USA commissioner Britton Banowsky knows at least one thing won’t change with autonomy for the five power conferences to make their own bylaws.

“There’s been a differentiator whether you call them BCS, non-BCS,” Banowsky said Wednesday. “I’m not naive to think that there won’t be some continued differentiation.”

Asked then what he’d like C-USA and similar NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision leagues to be called moving forward, Banowsky said, “Call us the second five, and note there’s 32 (conferences).”
