Congress' Turn, Maybe?

Well now that congress has squeezed all the good will votes out of the baseball steroid scandal, they have found another sport to stick their noses in, college football. Congressional Representatives from Georgia, Hawaii, and Idaho are introducing legislation to congress that would require the Justice Department to investigate whether or not the BCS system violates federal antitrust law.

As the article points out, it is very interesting that all three of the representatives are from states that include schools passed over for national championship consideration in the last two years. If the presidents and the BCS won't change anything maybe congress can.

If only Jose Canseco had written a book about the BCS system, instead of steriods, we might already have a 16 team playoff. One can only dream...
