Congressman says BCS must change

Kansas State 2000

WASHINGTON -- Two weeks into the new college football season, the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee said Thursday the system in which a national collegiate champion is determined needs to be changed.


"I think you're throwing the baby out with the bath water by allowing this to continue," Rep. James Sensenbrenner, R-Wis., said of the NCAA's Bowl Championship Series, which excludes many schools from automatic bids to compete in the lucrative bowl postseason.


But even one of the most vocal opponents said Congress should not get involved.


"Whatever issues may exist, it really should be worked among the university presidents without the intervention of Congress," Tulane University's president, Scott Cowen, said in advance of Thursday's hearing. He founded an anti-BCS organization designed to get schools such as Tulane a better shot at one of the big year-end bowl games.

Great! Just what we need...politicians running our sports programs!

  :D      :rolleyes:  

Wake up and smell the coffee. Politicians already run our sports programs. They just don't run a public campaign for office like the more celebrated criminals, errr, ummm government officials do.
