Everybody knows the college football bowl system is corrupt. Here’s the proof.

A political action committee called Playoff PAC is claiming in a report today that several college football bowl officials are abusing tax law by taking excessive salaries and perks while lobbying politicians and claiming tax-exempt status.

Playoff PAC used six lawyers and an accountant, working for free, to scour thousands of pages of documents and tax returns. They plan on filing an IRS complaint against the directors of the Sugar, Orange and Fiesta Bowls.

Playoff PAC points out that Fiesta Bowl director John Junker made over $600,000 last year. (This blog has previously written about how corrupt Junker is.) That average salary of a CEO running a “non-profit” the size of the Fiesta Bowl is $180,000 per-year.

According to, the appearance of Bowl Championship Series coordinator John Swofford and Alamo Bowl president Derrick Fox before Congress Friday was so embarrassing they called it a “bloodbath.”

Congressmen spent the entire morning lining up and bashing the BCS, college football’s current bowl system, Swofford, and Fox like pinatas. Even the Republicans got into the act. Rep. Joe Barton of Texas led the barrage against Swofford and Fox. At one point he compared the BCS to “communism” saying there was no way to fix the current system. It must be toppled. Barton also drew laughter when he told Swofford he should simply “drop the ‘s'” from the name because the system was BS.

Top college football officials, who have always turned their noses up at the thought of politicians telling them how to run their corrupt, fatcat system, had better wake up. They were absolutely STEAMROLLED on Friday. Congressman after congressman took turns airing their particular slights against the BCS. Barton, whose Texas Longhorns were royally screwed last year, was followed by politicians from Utah and Idaho where their colleges (the University of Utah and Boise State) were snubbed by the current system costing the schools (and their states) millions of dollars. The momentum certainly seems to favor a college football playoff system. Several congressmen threatened to pass legislation forcing a playoff. President barack Obama is on record as favoring a college football playoff.

Congress also did a good job Friday of showing how vile and corrupt people like Derrick Fox are. According to his last tax return, Fox made $438,035 as head of the Alamo Bowl. That shows at least SOMEONE benefited from the current system.

Everybody knows that the college football Bowl Championship Series is a fraud. Even the future president wants a playoff. What’s unbelievable is the “computer” system that will be used to pick a pair of teams to meet in the national championship game may be using invalid material to pick those two teams.

The website discovered that the people doing the BCS computer poll simply FORGOT to enter a couple of games in their calculations recently. The games in question didn’t end up influencing the BCS standings when they were recalculated, but the incident brings up a valid point. How many BCS computers have data entry problems?

As it turns out, when teams are as close as they are in college football this season, there is the very real possibility that the difference between an Oklahoma and Texas getting into a national championship game may come to somebody entering the wrong info into a computer!

Read the post in today’s to see how a data entry error could determine the national champion of college football.
