With Nothing Else to Worry About, a House Panel Tackles the BCS System


I’m so used to congressional idiocy that I have no idea why I still had to read this first paragraph twice to make sure it said what I thought it said, but that’s what I did nonetheless:

A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine a national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress had more pressing matters.

The bill, which faces long odds of becoming law, would ban the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I football game as a national championship unless that title contest is the result of a playoff.

I can’t believe the House is wasting their time (and our money) on this stuff. Don’t they have something better to do, like hold more hearings concerning steroids in baseball, grill the NFL Commish about why Rush Limbaugh can’t own a team, or investigate the death of Tupac Shakur?
