House committee hears BCS official

i really don't feel anything is going to come out of this particular hearing, but sooner or later the pressure will mount and something will happen. i am rather surprised that one thing isn't brought up . . . that the BCS operates as a college football monoploy for the BCS conferences. i am sure that is what was meant by the 'cartel' refernces, but i think they should start using the buzzword 'monopoly' more. i don't feel the average american believes monopolies are a fair business practice, so they might get more traction that way

Among those participating at Friday's hearing is Texas Rep. Joe Barton, the committee's top Republican, who has introduced legislation that would prevent the NCAA from labeling a game a "national championship" unless it culminates from a playoff system.

nice idea . . . i like it.

The BCS has come under attack from a range of politicians. Last November, as President-elect, Obama told "60 Minutes" he would prefer an eight-team playoff system. "I don't know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this," he said then. "So I'm going to throw my weight around a little bit."

now it all makes sense why sign guy seems so out of it with regard to college football. as the chosen one states, sign guy can't be a serious college football fan (being that he supports the BCS)

finally obama and i agree on something.

BCS assholes still think it's 1929 not 2009. college football has been getting bigger every year. it's not regional anymore. the whole country gets to see who the best is every weekend. there is more money in a playoffs system than bowl games.

Of course, all 13 Division 1-A conferences are members of the BCS, so the only who might have a legal gripe about being on the outside looking in are the likes of the Big Sky or the CAA, who are D-1 but not part of the BCS.

While I'd love to see a playoff, there is no legal recourse for the likes of Boise, Utah and BYU unless they all resign from the BCS and try and force change within the NCAA. All this posturing by the likes of Obama and the dicknose from Texas is annoying, a waste of time, and not even valid.

let me understand . . . so to get change, we are supposed to do nothing and hope that magically the BCS is going to vote to eliminate itself? btw, i thought the dicknose was from the state of illinois?? when did obama relocate to texas?

And this is totally the best use of congress' and the president's time. Ah well, Go Jayhawks, and go Ducks. I guess I like the bird teams. Although when Washington State wins, that also strikes me as extremely funny.

Different dicknose, of course.

I'm still not sure you're getting that the likes of BYU, Utah, and Boise are part of the BCS and have agreed to its terms. If Utah had been #1 in the final BCS poll, but the BCS said "no thanks, we'd rather have Florida play for the title against USC" then there would be something to squawk about, but other than that, the government angle is the studpidest fucking thing I have ever seen, and I hope fuck face from Texas is drummed out of the GOP for being such a schnozzle in the first place.

I hate these things more and more. Pointless! Other than for selling papers and triggering arguments about which 0-0 team is best.

Reason #128 why some form of playoff* makes more sense.


* Apologies for opening that can o' worms for like the 812th time.

I guarantee you that the Cal Bears are the best team at being 0-0 in the Pac-10
