This bill is being introduced by Joe Barton , the same individual who had hearings last summer regarding the BCS and has been angling for a playoff system since last season. And I agree with those of you who say Congress has far more important issues than a college football playoff. You know what else I believe - that a college football playoff system is not only possible, but long overdue. To those of you who want to maintain the status quo, I offer you the wisdom of Confucius ~ "They must often change, who would be constant in happiness or wisdom."
