NCAA and Congress

Originally published at BunkBlog. You can comment here or there.

Apparently Congress doesn’t have anything useful to do, so a subcommittee found time to debate whether the NCAA can call someone a “National Champion” if they haven’t gone through an elimination-style playoff.  Really?  This is something which is so important that the United States Congress must intervene?  People are stupid.

In particular, it's Texas's own unbearable cross Joe "Apeface" Barton who's leading the charge. He's still throwing tantrums over how he's not allowed to be the chairman of the House Energy Committee since the GOP's Congressional losses in 2006, so he's taking out his tiny penis frustrations on everyone else. (He's not my Representative - that dubious honor falls on Pete Sessions, who couldn't have been elected dogcatcher if Tom Delay hadn't pushed through that illegal Texas redistricting deal in 2003 - but Barton always manages to prove that Phil Gramm and Dick Armey weren't as bad as we could get. Lower than that I cannot get, under any circumstances.)

The amounts of money involved in college football are obscene. The current BCS system will always favor certain divisions and exclude others from the best bowl games. This equals unfair competition for many millions of dollars to various collegs.
