REF: BenI totally agree with the anti trust issue but you will never
see a 16 team playoff. The Networks and the Major Bowls will tie the courts up
in a tangled web of litigation if you try to eliminate the Confernce ties to
the major bowls. The Networks alone will pour money into the issue because they
stand to lose the most on their exclusive contracts with the 4 Major Bowls, the
Big Conferences and Select teams. They're not going to stand by and let that
happen... they have too many really big sponsors and a lot of Sponsor money that
do not want to see a playoff system forced.The easiest and best
thing is to force the BCS to adequately address the issue of Undefeated Non BCS
teams that are not given a shot at the Championship. It's a glaring issue and
needs to be addressed now. If there is even one undefeated non BCS team then it
should get to either playoff against the #2 for the chance to play the #1 ranked
BCS team or the #4 team at the end of Regular season play if you have a 4 team
Good for him- When Duke, Syracuse and Northwestern get 10 times the amount of
money per year that BYU, Boise, ECU do something is wrong. It is an anti-trust
violation b/c these crappy teams get millions of dollars per year to rebuild
facilities etc. while the great teams from other conferences get shafted. The
revenue should be shared equally amongst the D1 conferences with equal access to
the playoff or BCS, 8 or 16 team playoff. Every other decent team could play in
a bowl game. It would not destroy the bowls. The BCS is as anti-trust as it
gets, face the facts. It should be destroyed
uhhhhh....what??? us utahns (and people of idaho, apparently) are not after a
BCS bowl game in our states. We are after our states' universities (Utah, Boise
State, BYU, others...) to be in bowl games. Thanks
REF:BD 7:02 July 2, 2009You've got to be joking...you can't possibly
be serious saying what it appears you are saying. You can't really be that
uninformed. There was no such thing as a split National Championship with
Washington in 1984. Both the writers and the coaches unanimously gave BYU the
nod. Washington turned down the oppurtunity to play BYU in the Holiday
bowl...opting instead for the bigger New Years day paycheck playing
Oklahoma...they were fully made aware and ignored the possibility that if BYU
remained undefeated that the National Championship might easily slip from their
hands or from Oklahoma's....they went for the money instead...and they were
fully aware of the possibility... Oklahoma was tied to thier bowl they didn't
have a choice...but Washington did. The rest of the country was not aware of nor
even remotely even thought of the long standing traditions being broken....but
they were...and it was because of the 1984 Championship... still the only NCAA
Div I Football Championship not played in either the Rose the Sugar, the Orange
or the newest Power bowl the Fiesta.
REF:BCS is a MonoplyHey finally ...someone who actually knows and
understands how the BCS Beast came to be. Yeaper...them Big New Years boys with
their big multi million dollar TV contracts and the Big Ten...home of the BCS
Brain Child.... didn't like having their long Standing traditons of National
Championships broken and taken away from them by some little team out of the
Rockies. Especially when they did it in a podunk little stadium in San Diego on
the 27th of December and not on New Years Day.If you don't think the
BCS is a monopolistic conspiracy especially after seeing Utah twice and Boise
State not even arguably considered for a shot at the National title...then you
are either really slow on the uptake or you are total apathetic morons content
to just slurp up what little gravy the BCS purposfully spills on their dirty
floors so that they can laugh at you and watch you slobber and drool while
you're licking it up......Some token of respect !!! ......But if you're content
with that...then hey...what can I say.
it's about time. and Obama better come through on this campaign promise to
install a playoff system or i am not voting for him when he wants re-election
votes. come to think of it i probably won't vote for him anyway unless Palin is
running against him.
.. on the sports nation as a whole would understand that no one really cares or
thinks what the BCS does is legit/fair. They polled 50 million+ people after the
national championship game & most thought that the U deserved a shot or no
champion was found, Surprised? College football is the only sport that has no
legitimate champion. So no one really cares what happens at the end of the year.
Its just a time to sit with your family and enjoy the break between christmas
and new years. So here's my list of top semi-legit to legit team
sport championships based on polling from espn .. usa today and gallup polls.
1. NCAA Basketball - There is nothing better than watching the #1
ranked NCAA team loose. 2. NFL Football - Arizona Cardinals presence in
the Super Bowl warrants #2 ranking. 3. NHL Hockey - putting all the best
Russians on the Redwings is almost as bad as making a basketball team from the
Dream team. 4. NBA Basketball - example of last years classic finals
matchup of the Lakers-Celtics. This is why the NBA is 4 - rigged officiating.
5. Last - MLB World Series - Steroids .. need I say more.
In the beginning, College football was a "free enterprise" system. A small
school in the midwest was allowed to compete and become known "Notre Dame". But
college football evolved to where the “money” conferences
“controlled” the college football scene. The NCAA National
Championships were bestowed upon the survivor of the regular football season
with the highest poll rankings (AP and UPI) after the bowl season was completed.
The bowl assignments were awarded by conference collusions/contracts with
certain bowls. In 1984 BYU won the National Championship following
the “rules of the game”. When given their choice, play National
Champion BYU or score big bucks in the Orange Bowl; Washington followed the BCS
model; "go for the money". It is always about the money; money and control.Suddenly, it was a new world. The monopoly stewarts saw a new world on
the horizon. They foresaw a free enterprise with TCU, Boise State, Utah, and BYU
winning future national championships. They foresaw losing recruits, money,
prestige, and power. What to do? Their answer was to corner the
market; create and control a monopoly; thus the BCS was born. Remember, when it
acts and quacks like a duck (or a Monopoly); it is.
Change the NameOne argument to your theory....there would be an
asterik by the second Notre Dame...they are becoming quite popular in sports
these days. Sorry for the put down on your illogical theory. I sincerely hope
that there wasn't a Master's or a PHD riding on it. Good Luck with coming up
with something substantial to replace it. You might try actually mentioning
either Sen. Hatch or the BCS in your next attempt to say something meaningful.
They are two essential elements of the article being discussed here. Focus and
Perspective also.....in your case as well as many others they both need
changing. The rivalry will take care of itself it doesn't take a bunch of BYU
and UTEY misfits to keep it going.
First of all, the real issue is the money. Do you realize how much these teams
make? Not just the teams making the big bowls, but the BCS conference
cellar-dwellers. All they have to do is field a team every year and they bring
in millionsfor their university. Did they earn it? No! They somehow became a
part of one of these mega-conferences years ago and have benefited ever since.
Second, sure not every mid-major team can make it through the Big 12, but there
are exceptions. Last years Utes probably could not have done it, but they should
have had a shot. The Urban meyer team easily could have, that team was as good a
team as there has been the last 10 years in college (and i'm a BYU fan). And
what about the BSU team that beat OU. And last, how do they decide which
conferences get an automatic bid? The Big East, really? Notre Dame, really? So
if the NCAA can't make it right and the BCS refuses to change, who's job is it
to oversee big business? When there is this much money involved, the government.
Folks, college football should not be treated like every other for-profit
business. Remember that these universities are taking public monies all the
time. The BCS schools are actually great at generating $$ for their big sports,
so much so that many of their other sporting activities are free (I know, I
attended one such school). But to just say, "it's a business and must look at
for it's bottom line," is to deny the spirit of sportsmanship that we've
attempted to establish with PUBLIC $$ at PUBLIC universities. It's a bit
disingenuous to ask to be treated like a business at one moment and charity the
Um, I wouldn't be posturing the Pac10 as the big bad conference you seem to
think they are. The MWC pretty much spanked them last year--and that was even
with the PAC-10 refs, who refuse to trade refs like pretty much every other
conference in college football. As for the SEC, yeah, they're big and bad, and
I've lived in football country (aka, "The South") and football really is life to
many folks. But even our bottom dweller (Wyo) beat SEC's bottom dweller (Tenn)
last year.The point is that the Utes spent nearly the entire season
ranked in the top 25, beat 4 top 25 teams and still weren't even considered for
a national championship. If a team like that doesn't have a chance to claim a
nat'l title, then the system is clearly messed up.
Ya Utah would have beat Florida just like the Jazz should have beat the Lakers.
Unfortunately there is a playoff in the NBA..
I am a Utah fan.I obviously liked to have Utah in the BCS championship team last
year.However, Senator, this country is in need of much more serious
legistrations. Let's fight against the liberal, socialist agenda that
Obama, Pelosy and Reid are pushing at full speed aiming to destroy this
country.Let's putting our efforts to vote for a more balanced House and
Senate in 2010.SoCalUtahFan
I totally agree with you, but on the other hand over the years ND has earned
their name and their status. They have proven they are not just a flash in the
pan operation. 11 national championships, the four horsemen, Knute Rockne, The
Gipper, Rudy, 7 Heisman trophy winners, all the great NFL players...They should
get more condieration than Utah..
Yeah, nobody outside Utah thought we should be National Champs. Nobodies like
Dan Patrick and Jim Rome...
Hey real conference, what was the Pac 10's record against the Mountain West in
football this past season. Your are showing your ignorance
I would agree with BYU fan. And with all things being equal, BYU did not
deserve the 1984 National Championship by going undefeated!!!! Oh, I am sorry,
it was a split National Championship with Washington! All football
teams in the country deserve the right to play for the national championship
regardless of their conference. The automatic bid teams and conferences have a
gravy train to the $$$$ and the National Championship. The
BCS is big business. We are talking millions and millions of dollars if not
approaching billions. BCS teams that are in major bowls get major TV time,
major games, and major money. This should be available to all. I agree with
Hatch, they broke up ATT and other groups, the BCS is not different!
REF: BYU Fan and REF: re:5:04Don't worry boys the rivalry will take
care of itself... it doesn't need a couple of friggen loudmouths to keep it
going. Amazing how a perfect oppurtunity to lay in some licks
against the biggest Farce in Sports throughout the land and it turns into a
bunch of pea brains arguing over T shirts and socialismRISE and
SHOUT..but only about Football and the BCS Please !!!!
Isn't that the point? Even if a team in an automatic bid conference stinks it
up--they still get the cash flow.Aren't we just looking for an Equal
Opportunity EmPLAYer here?
You mean we won't text in our votes for who should be the next National
Champion?You mean that self-serving coaches and media personnel
won't hold up score cards each week?When the BCS elected to having a
rating system determine its champion, college football became olympic diving.Utah: 5.7, 5.5, 5.9, 5.8, 5.5 (Loser)Florida: 6.0, 5.9, 6.0,
5.8, 5.6 (Winner)It's that absurd.
If Utah had played the same schedule with the same results, but under the name
of Notre Dame, etc. they would have been National Champions. Can anyone argue
ask anyone who watched it that was a Utah fan. No one in the country outside of
Utah thought Utah should have been National Champs..
I hope you're being sarcastic. Utah deserved a NC. Ask anyone who watched the
Sugar Bowl last year. By the way, I was picked on for wearing a Utah shirt to
school. Hypocritical cougar...but then again I wouldn't expect anything
different of a BYU fan.
Yawn ,none of you need to worry. Next year the Utes and Cougars will have sub
par years and they will be both fighting to get to the Las Vegas bowl so they
can be beat by yet another pac-10 team. yawn
I would much rather these guys focus on sports than getting together to decide
what else they can do to spur the economy. So far they have only interfered
with the free market creating even worse long-term problems. The less gov't the
better. So if they all took time away from fixing the economy it may actually
just fix itself.
Roughly for Hatch: 19 (63%), and anti Hatch, 11 (37%).Those FOR
Hatch have the best understanding of the BCS and those who are AGAINST Hatch
either have NO understanding of the BCS or they are FOR teams playing for the
BCS and want to keep it that way.Go Orrin, and don't think about
your ANTI's. We are with you.
To: OH PLEASE...your comments show that you CLEARLY have no idea what goes on
in Washington. Hatch, in fact, is a very effective and respected Senator. He
is probably the leading constitutional expert in the U.S. Senate. You really
should get a little more experience before you make such uninformed comments.
I just would like to add that there are some that say this is just a "sports"
issue or that there are other "bigger" issues out there. Make no mistake this
is a multi billion dollar business that the BCS has going on and they don't
want to share. It is completely unfair and a total sham. Something needs
to be done about it. The BCS is getting away with millions of dollars to
select schools and conferences. What about the little guy or the chance to be
the best. Hopefully something will change and even dealing with what some
call an "insignificant" issue as this will help this country and the economy.
Just my opinion
I'd like congress to focus on things that really matter. The BCS is fine as it
is. When my Longhorns go undefeated their national champs. Perfect. Look for
it to happen again this season. OU or Florida go undefeated they're national
champs.If the Utes and zoobies played in a real conference they
could do the same, oh wait, they would have to play a full season against real
football schools. I would love to see the Utes try to run the gauntlet known as
the Big 12 South. TCU couldn't do it. Ask TCU enjoyed OU last year. The y
will get a taste of OU soon enough. Now imagine playing UT, OU, OSU and TT over
a six week period. Throw in Missouri Nebraska and A&M to round out your season.
Ouch!Enjoy being a big fish in the mediocre MWC puddle or man up and
join a real conference. But stop crying and wasting government resources.
I still can't believe that Hatch knows something that has affected our state. I
wonder where he got his information. He must have an inturn that lives in Utah
or something that told him about it.I thought Hatch was too busy
working on the Death Star to notice anything that happens in Utah.He
is 75 years old - don't you think if he is about to have his drivers license
taken away, he shouldn't be able to be a senator anymore....Oh and
to the poster who suggests that the Utes should just join another
conference....uh I'm not sure you should be using a computer, but you actually
have to be "invited" to join those conferences... hence the problem..
Expensive way: sue for antitrust violation. Cheap way: pass legislation that
bars the use of the term "national champion" without a playoff.
This is a sports article, if you don't like it go to the buisness section. If
you don't care about sports or the situaton with the BCS don't read it. Your the
one that needs to focus.
Get a clue. Don't you think they would have done this years ago. Have you ever
heard of any invite? You have no idea what you are talking about. The BCS
schools are scared to even play MWC schools. Have you seen their schedules? You
want to talk about patsies check out Florida's OOC shedule.Hatch is
doing the right thing. Level the playing field and spread the wealth.
First of all, its the PaC 10 and Big Twelve, not Pac 12 and Big Fourteen. Second of all, if BYU and UTAH were in those other confrences, they
would have a far better recruiting pool than they do now. They would have some
rebuilding years where they would have a hard time keeping winning records, but
once they got a strong team in place, and a stronger recruiting class, you would
see they would be able to dominate those confrences with ease.
REF:AmazingThe so called Elite Teams formally given that status because
they consistently year after year trompled over every one have been greatly
reduced in recent years. The Big guns number fewer. Right now the only
conferences who can brag about having more than one are The SEC with (4) and the
Big 12 with (2) for sure and possibly a third.
Dear Brother Hatch! Good for you! But what about the oil companies, the
broadcast media that use the people's air ways, the banks, the insurance
companies, wall street,corporations in general, health care etc.? Oh! they can
take care of and police themselves! We must focus on sports! Sports is
everything especially now. Lets keep our focus.I can't believe we
are so stupid.
So what else is new...This issue will die here in Utah as the local teams start
losing and there will be no real need for altering the current BCS.
REF: SwifttouchYou know... it sure would be nice if some people knew thier
BCS history a little. Dude... there is no movement to get The Big BCS Bowls
moved. You're totally out in left field long after the lights have been turned
off here. The 3 big Traditional New Years Day Bowls along with the 3 Major
networks that always covered them conspired originally with the Big Ten
conference to ensure that a 1984 National Championship never happens again. The
1983 Holiday Bowl is the only NCAA National Championship that was not played in
either one of the former 3 Major New Year Bowls or the newest Power Bowl the
Fiesta Bowl along with the newest TV power broker ESPN that not too many years
ago challenged the 3 big Networks for the BIG MONEY Market share.The
big Ten is where the BCS Brain Child is from...These guys were used to BIG LONG
STANDING TRADITIONS. The Big Ten when playing for National Championships were
used to winning or losing them usually in the Grand Daddy of all Bowls... The
Rose Bowl......not some podunk little stadium in San Diego in December.
Years ago these same BCS schools were allowed to stockpile athletes so the other
school coulnd't get them. Then the NCAA was forced to put a limit on
scholarships and they could no longer stockpile athletes and these athletes
started going to the other schools. That leveled the playing field. Then they
said, why not have a limited bowl system which only we can get into and that
will give us the big bucks and the athletes will want to come to our schools and
not "those other schools". After all they want to play on the national stage.
And the arrogant, hypocritical, gutless, spineless , political
prostituted NCAA bought into it. The BCS should be tried on RICCO
charges as a mafia type organization.
The only reason got into the BCS this year is because Congress did this same
hearing several years back and the BCS modified their plans. The only way to
change this is by legislation, because the BCS people will continue to protect
their $ as long as they can. I have a suggestion. Take the top
ranked BCS team and the top ranked non BCS team and pit them together in a
championship bowl game. If the BCS teams are so great they will whip the non
BCS ranked team every year. We know that won't happen because the BCS guys
don't want to have to eat crow when they get their rearends handed to them on a
platter, like Utah did to Alabama. They want to maintain this artficial
superiority as long as they can and will drag their feet all the way to the bank
for as long as they can. The NCAA is a gutless, useless, no
back-bone, spineless group of President's who just happen to be from BCS
conferences so they were duplcitous in their approval of the BCS system. Congress is gutless to not solved this problem before.
He's right no matter what you think. We do need a Play-off system. Utes were an
underdog against a team that they destroyed. Utes were 13-0. BCS teams are
overrated and I know we would have beaten Florida, but we will never know? Get
this system fixed!
On top of everything else if the NCAA has done wrong. Take one look at march
madness and the revenue it generates for the schools involved. I think if it was
legit the championship game would be more popular than the superbowl.
If BYU and the U want to seriously compete for the national title then they need
to laave the MWC (Mediocrity West Conference) and join the PAC 10 or the Big
Twelve. My guess is that the two schools won't do this because they like having
so many MWC patsies on their schedules which almost guarantees a good record.
Its very interesting to see the people in this most conservative state advocate
legislation forcing the BCS to accept teams from smaller conferences. Never mind
that very few of you will put your money where your mouth is. When Utah beat
Alabama, there were less than 15,000 Utah fans in attendance. You are
legislating forcing bowls to take a financial loss. If you won't follow your
team, get a ticket, get a hotel, eat meals, buy souvenirs, the bowl can't pay
I love that the BCS has come out in the recent past and basically said that the
BYU and Utahs of the world should be happy with the current system because it is
better than the previous system. At least these smaller schools have a chance
of getting into the Sugar Bowl and Fiesta Bowl when under the previous system
they had no chance at this. Well, with that logic, shouldn't African-Americans
have been happy with legal segregation because it was better than the previous
system of slavery? I know civil rights is a much more important issue but I use
the example to show the bigotry of the haughty leaders of the BCS. Billions of
dollars are spent on college football every year. This IS a problem that
congress should deal with. It's a business. Our government protects American
citizens from corrupt business dealings.
This is more than a college football issue, folks. Higher education is in a
financial crisis. Colleges and Universities are looking at what programs to cut
or reduce due to our conditions. These schools rely on the extra money from the
bowl games to keep programs going. The BCS conferences don't want to share that
money, and they are afraid of fair competition. The argument that
the BCS teams are the only ones generating revenue is suspect at best. The
outside teams really have never had an equal chance to prove that they could
generate an equal amount of revenue. They are not allowed to play on the same
national stage as the "elite" teams.
if this is such a horrible system why dont we just take away some of he tax
exempt status of those in the GCS conferences leveling the overall monatary
playing field for everyone. Because we all know that if the MWC gets invited
into the BCS we are all going to keep complaining until the WAC get its shot.
Because that would be unfair if they get left out and we get invited.....right?
Hatch wants to be reelected. He is an old, ineffectual old man. He hasn't had
an original idea for the last 16 years. No one takes him seriously anymore.
The BCS is a mess. Everyone agrees but the conferences agreed to this
arrangement when the BCS was set up. Everyone forgets that. Step down, Hatch.
Retire with all your millions. You can buy and sell the State of Utah.
Dude. It's about the money. NOT about the sport. When you look at it from that
angle it makes PERFECT sense for the BCS to do what it's doing. They
are maximizing profits by keeping BIG BCS BOWLS in max profit areas. Because
Utah, Idaho, etc do not have as many people, they don't want to have bowl games
played in low populated areas such as Utah.Even with that said, I
still think there needs to be a national playoff. It's really the only fair way
of giving every school a chance. And the NCAA should be forced in this respect
to dismantle the BCS in favor of a national playoff.
Hatch is doing EXACTLY what he's supposed to be doing as an elected official.
That is representing the interests of his constituents. There are at least TWO
schools in his state that are being cut out of the big money by the BCS. That
affects a lot of people in Utah.The BCS is clearly in violation of
anti-trust laws and it needs to be reformed. It's time someone in Washington
held their feet to the fire. There is A LOT of money at stake and it ripples
through the system.Good for you Senator Hatch. Keep it up.
I love Orrin Hatch. When he knows he's right, he's not afraid to take on anyone,
including the entrenched, well-funded interests of the BCS.The BCS
is nothing more than an exclusive club designed to perpetuate a competitive and
financial monopoly on college football. If there was ever a trust to
be busted, this is it.Go Senator Hatch.
Hatch is right. This is a blatant anti-trust violation and if it was any other
industry, government would be severely criticized for looking the other way.
Unbelievable postings!!! Give Senator Hatch some credit. He is finally taking
on something that people care about!BCS stands for power and money,
pure and simple. If you are a BCS team you have it made no matter if you lose
every game. If not, you have to grovel to participate even if you win every
game.Power and money has prostituted a great game into a business
monopoly reserved for the collegiate elitists. It is now time to get something
done and bring fairness back into the game.Now, Senator Hatch,
juggle a few more things like fighting Obamanomics, out of control federal
spending and stemming our slide into europeanistic socialism!
Waa Waa Waa
To Naruto: Of course "He is just pandering to the masses of Utah." That's who
elected him. He's supposed to do that.
Focus on something important.
Hatch will jump on any hot button issue just to get his mug in front of the
camera or his name in the paper. It's NOT the government's place to
regulate sporting events... Hatch is part of the soft tyranny governing group of
despots that currently occupy D.C.
Doesn't he have any real work that needs to be done. He might want to do
something for his country instead of worrying about an unfair football game and
Be careful I hear Tebow can turn water into Gatoraide and kill you with the
power of his mind. Florida just need speak a single word and the power of Tebow
will destroy us all.
Hey...the ball will soon be back in the the BCS's court. They're going to soon
have to do something. They won't be allowed to just sit on their hands and drag
their feet. They'll be given one last oppurtunity to make their own corrections.
The NCAA is just as responsible for letting this get out of their
hands as the Big Ten, the Major TV Networks and the Traditional former New Years
Bowls are for creating this monster. Last week the MWC went in demanding an 8
team playoff. That might be something to possibly see further down the road.
But there is a much bigger issue that needs attention and needs attention now.
The issue of undefeated teams before the final BCS selections. It is obvious
that some type of playoff must first start with addressing that key issue first.
It can be done without changing the present BCS Bowl configuration and with only
minimal changes to the selection criteria. However adding probably the Cotton
Bowl to the The BCS stable would be a better way. In the article BCS blasts the
MWC I outlined a 2 game scenario that would resolve the problem.
Though I don't support most of Orin Hatches views, I do support this one, and
have been waiting for someone to change the way a national champion in 1A
college football is determined. It is Common Sense!Every other
level of any sport has a playoff system that includes conference, district,
division etc, champions. BCS is unfair and college football sucks to watch,
because only every once in a while does the BCS get it right. The last several
years only 1 of the best two teams had a chance to play for the national
He is just pandering to the masses of Utah so he can get re-elected. That's all
he cares about. Everyone in Utah is dissapointed with the BCS, but I think there
are some more pressing concerns at this moment. Maybe you should take some
driving lessons in the meantime Hatch.
I fear all hatch may do is force college football back to the way it was before
the BcS. the big money bowls would return to their conference tie ins and there
would be no chance whatsoever for the Utahs and BSUs to get a chance at any of
the money generated in those big bowls. bogus polls that don't look beyond
20-30 teams will still select their "champion", and said champion will never
come from a conference outside the big six.One argument the BcS
conspirators put forth that has yet to be refuted is they are the ones
generating the most revenue, it's socialistic to force them to share with those
who are not generating the same level of revenue.don't get me wrong,
I'm not sticking up for the BcS, but unless they actually force some type of
play-off system, the money generation, control, and crowning of some type of
champion will still be in the same corrupt hands, if only under a different
Good for him. Corrupt is corrupt. Next I hope he focuses on bailouts for failed
companies i.e. fannie mae etc.
The BCS is biased. It is corrupt. Just ask Alabama if Utah deserved a shot at
that national championship. The Mountain West Conference had three times in the
top 25, and two in the top seven. The MWC should have had two teams in the BCS
bowls, not one. What a stupid, rigged system. And to hear grown men "lie" and
say there is nothing wrong with it, insults everyone with half a brain.
Hatch's own political party, the Republican Party, conspires with Democrats to
keep the political game all to themselves and keep out competing parties and
other potential challengers.I can't take Hatch's complaint against
the BCS seriously until he brings the same complaint against the two-headed, one
party system from which he benefits.
live for coverage like this, hopefully he actually does something more than yap
about it, although I wouldn't hold my breath.
it is not hot air and posturing - it is a warning that allows the NCAA to get
its house in order before the government forces them to do it right.
great! Go after the "gedurdone" conferences.
Until you introduce and push legislation, it is all hot air and political
