Of course we all know the BCS is far from perfect. But that's the NCAA's problem.
I'd expect something like this on April 1 maybe, b/c this is downright asinine:

I can understand Congress sticking its nose into the sports world with regard to steroids only to a degree, but spending time and money on looking at the BCS? What have we come to? Now, granted there is [substantial] money involved for the schools, but seriously, why the hell does Congress need to get involved?  banghead 


Playoffs? Don't talk about playoffs!

We're screwing up a war overseas and Congress is spending its -- I mean our -- time and money analyzing how the national college football champion is decided. This is rediculous. Of course the BCS is flawed, but why the hell does the federal government need to get involved? Good lord...

I think that there are Congressmen who ought to be censured or even be impeached for dereliction of duty. They allow a President to unConstitutionally drag this country into war, and they're wasting their time with baseball and football.

Don't these clowns have something better to do than get involved with the BCS? Why do we keep electing morons like this?

Exactly.

There are much more important things Congress needs to do rather than deal with this crap . . . like picking out the new colors in the Congressional Shitters.  sarcastic  What a waste of taxpayer time and money.

At first glance, I tend to agree. After all, we have so many more important issues facing us as a nation that to spend time on the BCS is simply ludicrous.

That said, if it keeps them from accepting bribes out the back door, perhaps it isn't all bad.... biggrin

Sounds more like an opportunity for additional bribes than an alternate to me.
