    House panel passes college football playoff bill


    you have got to be kidding me. a game? they are regulating a freaking game from congress?

    "The legislation, which still faces steep odds, would ban the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision game as a national championship unless it results from a playoff"

    i want to punch everyone in the face.

    I would love to hear anybody try and explain how Congress has ANY business getting involved in this. Absolutely ridiculous...

    Although they got involved with baseball, I would have to agree that this is an entirely different animal.

    Completely agree. Is there anyone out there that's 'for' this? (Not the playoff game, but Congress getting involved in it.)

    I guess this answers that old rhetorical question my granddad used to ask.

    "What is it going to take to get a damn playoff in college football, an act of congress?"

    Yes

    Because Congress feels it should control every aspect of life in the country.

    I doubt very seriously if the NCAA would be bound by it.

    This will clearly help Congress' approval ratings with the BCS-hating public. Well, with one or two of them, anyway.

    What a crock. Fraud waste and abuse.

    Hope and change, baby. Barry promised to look into it and now, as King of the World, he's keeping his promise.

    Will he apologize to LSU for 2003?
