Anyone who is still trying valiantly to take our Congress seriously can stop now:
Rep. Joe Barton, R-Ennis, chairman of the
Subcommittee on Commerce, Trade and Consumer Protection, will conduct a
hearing next week about the BCS....
When asked to explain the timing of the hearings, a spokesman for
Barton referred to BCS history. Before this season, four of the seven
BCS years have resulted in championship game controversy.
"The BCS system was created to identify a broadly accepted national
champion, but 57 percent of the time it has failed to do so," Barton
said in the news release. "Most coaches who lose 57 percent of their
games would also lose their jobs. Yet that's what we settle for in
determining a champion today."
Wow, it must be the 30th Amendment: Congress shall make no law abridging the right of Division 1 college football fans to have a clear national champion. I wonder if this is just a ploy to get free Rose Bowl tickets?
Everyone in Congress. Go home. Now. Don't come back.
