In a move that should inspire outrage in college football fans everywhere, Obama’s Justice Department has decided that the College Bowl System is a violation of antitrust laws! Rather than going after petty criminals like international drug cartels, or preventing voter fraud, this justice department wants to dictate how college football picks it’s champions.
It seems that the Justice Department is very concerned about their view of fairness. They feel that the current bowl system isn’t fair to the smaller schools. There are 6 conferences who’s champions get automatic bids to bowl games. Other conferences have to compete in order to get bowl bids.
But perhaps this is just The Won’s attempt to fulfill one of his campaign promises when he threatened â€œto throw my weight around a little bitâ€ in order to force college football into a playoff format to replace the current BCS system.
While I won’t argue the merits of BCS vs playoff systems, I can say that the government has no business dictating the format to the NCAA.
