    I hope it passes, teams like Boise State will never be able to prove themselves without a playoff system. And we all know when you prove yourself you get more money for your program.
    A good example of this is Gonzaga, in the last ten years since it started going to the playoff every year enrollment is up and the program is funded quite a bit more bringing in even more money to the school in the long run.



    And Boise State is going to kick TCU's ass in the Fiesta Bowl.

    I am trying to figure out why the hell they would give a shit about this! :confused:

    Do I want a playoff system? Yes, but do I think that should be left up the BCS and not the government? Absolutely!

    Well Obama did say he would get this done. Congrat Prez you actually have done one thing in your first year.

    the only valid argument i heard about it was from an antitrust side. the teams not in the bcs conferences get shafted.

    They have a right to set up their system how they like. Government has authority to dictate, because universities receive public funds. I am not doubting from the legal end, rather I am doubting from a priority end, we have countless problems:
    (1) Unemployment at possible 20%+ (officially at 10.2%)
    (2) The war in Iraq
    (3) The war in Afghanistan
    (4) The poor economy
    (5) The healthcare mess
    (6) Getting off foreign oil
    (7) Detroit in a mess
    (8) The weak and incompetitive US manufacturing sector
    (9) Climategate leading to cap and trade leading to killing this country
    (10) Illegal immigration
