This is a useless gesture by legislators desperate to placate their constituents with something, anything, that looks like action against the BCS. I hate the BCS as much as the next person, but really, a resolution? That isn't even a bill. A bill would potentially involve action and change, while a resolution is nothing more than "going on the record" with a complaint no one can actually do anything about. There are congressional resolutions for a host of issues no one ever intends to actually confront. This is one of them. When we see bills brought forward, sent to committee, sent to the full house for vote, THEN we would have something newsworthy. A resolution is as effective as a birthday candle wish. As you can tell, I never did get that pony I asked for 3 times!
