BCS doesn’t need Congress, it just needs one more game: Bill Livingston


CLEVELAND, Ohio — Everybody is unhappy with the Bowl Championship Series these days, including the Republicans, the party that considers government a big buttinski.

“Down the Hatch,” as the Wall Street Journal put it, went that philosophy when Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah) held a second round of Antitrust Subcommittee hearings these week, designed to paint the BCS leaders as the most class-conscious group since the English wore powdered wigs.

Actually, the BCS has done a decent job. Its mandate was to identify the top two college teams for a national championship game. It has run into resistance because of the rising parity in college football and because of its built-in caste system.
