    I hope this isn't a d_b. If so, feel free to nuke, Mods.


    Thought I'd just post this one, too.

    I'm not a big proponent of the "Doesn't Congress have more important things to do" line of thinking but doesn't Congress have more important things to do right now?

    This looks so serious, ESPN or Fox might sign another 10 year extension with the BCS.

    If Congress really wanted a playoff, they could force the NCAA into it with a one page bill that mandates a football playoff or all federal funds to the member universities are withheld. Anything else is just grandstanding.

    And they would get absolutely ripped for it in the court of public opinion. As much as people seem to want a playoff, I think Americans would be pretty pissed off right now if Congress was spending time talking college football instead of trying to get people back to work.

    Playoffs would actually PUT MORE PEOPLE TO WORK!

    if you sue the bcs for antitrust violations, you're suing the mountain west conference, mr. brett.

    yes they are. as are all 11 conferences in FBS.

    well, ok, the 11 conferences are bowl eligible to be in BCS bowls, but only six and notre dame have any consistent shot (usually one non-bcs school gets a spot, this year two) at the big bows with tie-ins. plus, you can sue your employer, so why not sue the bcs, which is controlled by the big conferences?

    Legislation directed at one organization or entity is unconstitutional, as the ACORN fiasco proved.
