Congressional BCS Intervention is a Great Idea


This story has been brewing this week and reminds me of the congressional hearings on MLB steroid use.

Senator Orrin Hatch (R-UT) is pushing a Judiciary subcommittee to hold hearings on the problematic play-off system (or non-system) in NCAA Division I football.

As if that’s ever a good- or legal- use of time on Capitol Hill.

But at least it doesn’t involve raising taxes.  In fact, it doesn’t involve messing up much of anything, because the NCAA’s Bowl Championship Series can’t get much worse.

If it takes their time away from pushing amnesty, Obama’s budget, higher taxes, universal health care, cap-and-trade, card check, then Congress should spend every possible moment on solving this pressing problem.  Or at least so Utah doesn’t get screwed again.


Judicial anti-trust hearings on these same issues were led by then-Senator Joe Biden back in 2003.

Just another argument for government’s effective touch.
