I will be the first one to say that the BCS is an ugly baby and needs to disappear in favor of a playoff system—or just something else for that matter. I will also be the first person to say that government involvement in the NCAA is so far from an acceptable solution it’s an absolute joke!

While I believe a majority will agree that there is a need for a new post-season system in Division 1, I’m fairly certain I’m in the minority as far as who should institute that change. Without getting too political, it’s evident we Americans have become far too dependent upon Uncle Sam fixing everything that we foul up. NCAA officials either did not predict or did not care about the scenarios which we’ve seen play out over the past few years. But to have senators, representatives and now the President involved is ludicrous!

This is not a debate on whether or not the BCS is a boondoggle and what should be done. We’ve all been to that party. This is, however, my fundamental objection to a government who is successfully encroaching on my personal freedoms day by day and is now pressing to decide how best to solve problems in college football.

I throw the B.S. flag!
