Why does the **** govenment have to stick there nose into everything? Now there going to investigate the BCS about possable antitrust law violations. All because a Utah senitor got his nose bent out of shape because his team went undefeated and did not get to play for the National Campionship. Also, don't you think that the President should focus his attention on the state of the union and not the state of NCAA Football?

This is a complete waste of resources.

I'm 50/50 on the BCS. I love how dramatic college football season is -- and I love how big the bowl games are. I think much of the swagger would be lost if it went to a playoff. However, it's very difficult to argue the "fairness" without a playoff.

For the love of GOD! (I'm not religious, but it makes a point) I cannot believe how inane Congress can be about the sports issue like it's somehow a problem all Americans face. If there were big time collusion, etc., I could see it, but who gives three craps about how the rules are?

The BCS only seems unfair if your team somehow gets the short end. The beauty of this system is it keeps people from having to gruel out an entire month of January picking between college bowl games and competition from the NFL playoffs.

Besides, if you get the short end of the current system, you retain an arguable point until next year. Otherwise, you have to just shut up.

I will agree there needs to be a playoff system however I dont think the president needs to worry about this. He needs to run the country not sports.

One of the first rules of leadership learned during my days in the Army was to NOT use your rank or position for personel gain. Since the President has made it public knowledge he favors a playoff system and was quoted as saying he would "throw my weight around a little bit" to bring about change in the BCS, it seems he has violated this fundimental rule of leadership and created a conflict of interest. Seems our fearless leader is a bit :confused:

He is the only president who hasn't served, correct?

Clinton did not serve, he went to school instead. Guess that would explain a few things though. But, leadership is not just a military thing. Leadership is found in all walks of life, just that it's a bigger deal in the Military.

Well yeah, because the military leaders aren't just making decisions that affect your job, they make decisions that affect your life!!

Anyways, BCS SmheeCS, no matter what the format, someone will win, more than one will loose, and even more will complain. I like college football, and yes I disagree with the way the BCS works, but if we did it democratically, the final game wouldn't be played until the last week of July each year. Good luck to your team next year, I hope they win every game and have a really tough schedule, it's their best chance really :D
