Today, the Senate Antitrust Subcommittee begins its hearings on the Bowl Championship Series (BCS), with the intent of determining whether the NCAA is being “fair” in deciding its top division’s champion. What a load of crap!
Given the state of our economy, you would think they’ve got more important business to conduct in the senate. Relegating this bit of frivolous nonsense to the back burner would have been appropriate.
Lord help me, the apocalypse is nigh!
Hear, hear. Pure lip service for his constituents back in Utah. Didn’t hear much from Senator Hatch when Penn State was denied a share of the title back in 1994. What a hypocrite.
The Nittany Turkey says
This is probably an appropriate activity for the senate on the day of bi-coastal circuses: Michael Jackson’s “memorial” in the west and Al Franken’s swearing in in the east.
Hatch is like any other politician — he’ll gladly talk out of both sides of his mouth as long as the net result is re-election.
JoePa, Obama, and this Turkey (not necessarily in that order) would love to see a better system for determining the national champ, which under the BCS is still somewhat mythical. However, for this to be an issue for the Senate antitrust subcommittee is ridiculous.
