    Re: Congress to look at BCS

    They fixed the economy, now they need to fix the BCS.

    With there hands on it it will be a really mess now. 118 team playoff here we come.

    Re: Congress to look at BCS

    Love it or hate it, congress has no business getting involved in the BCS. Any reasoning they would have to do is totally contrived.

    Why don't they just force the NCAA to make every D1 program that has a football program play at the same level and have all that excitement for 1A? Just imagine Yale playing USC and North Dakota State playing Florida in the playoffs!How awesome would that be?

    I can just hear it now: "well everyone deserves a shot... it doesn't matter that they didn't contribute to the quality of football played this year... they deserve SOMETHING..."

    Man... THIS SOUNDS SO FAMILIAR... Have I heard this recently about something... what was it...

    Cool Re: Congress to look at BCS

    Oh, I can see it now. The liberal mind set is "everyone is a winner", not one loses. Cannot give F's as a grade anymore. If your company fails, we will bail you out, etc...yada yada.....

    So, I'm sure they'll set up a BCS system that includes all 119 teams, even those that didn't win a game because "everyone is a winner".

    I love it!

    Re: Congress to look at BCS

    Absolutely incredible. Congress does not have the time, nor the money to investigate something as meaningless as college football. Don't get me wrong...I love college football, but this is absurd.

    Gov't to do list:
    1.) Fix economy
    2.) Win wars
    3.) Fight terrorism
    4.) Solve BCS problem

    Anyone have any recommendations on a good country to move to?

    I'm sure there will be another round of steroid hearings this summer as well. Anything to distract people from their ineptitude on matters that are important

    While we're talking about terminating contracts, i can think of about 535 that should be eligible for that program...

    Don't worry. Since it doesn't have to do with spending money and increasing our debt, I'm sure it will take normal government time.

    Re: Congress to look at BCS

    My guess is that Congress will decide to take wins from rich...the USC, Ohio State, Florida, OU's of the world and give them the poor...the Iowa State's of the world. We just have to finish 4-8 each year, we get 2 wins from the rich, and we go bowling. Woo!
