Bail out for the BCS?
We've separated church and state (kind of), so can we please do the same with sports? Texas Congressman Joe Barton is going to attempt to push legislation that would force the BCS to adopt a playoff system to determine the national champion.
Joe: Your Longhorns didn't get screwed. If they'd beaten Texas Tech, they'd be in. Can his motive be any more transparent?
First congress felt the need to intervene with baseball's steroid issue (though oddly forgetting about the NFL), and now this? Aren't there more important things to worry about like - oh, say - the economy?
Just my two cents.
