Finally! Something that can enjoy truly bipartisan support. Kill the BCS.

Multiple reports indicate the Obama administration may be looking to abolish the hated Bowl Championship Series and force a playoff in college football. Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah had already formally requested a Justice Department investigation into the legality of the BCS. Now, an assistant attorney general is reportedly checking into the possibility of the Federal Trade Commission suing the BCS under consumer protection laws.

There is already pending legislation in Congress to eliminate the BCS not to mention a scandalous expose by an Arizona paper which may lead to jail time for several bowl executives. Obama came out in favor of a college football playoff while running for president.
