Senate Anti-Trust Subcommittee to Discuss the BCS Football Championship

by Daniel Bennett

I read an essay by Senator Orrin Hatch in this week's Sport's Illustrated that described the inequity in the BCS Football Championship model. The Senate Anti-Trust Subcommittee is meeting this week to discuss the possible anti-trust implications of the BCS model. SI's Stuart Mandel previews the hearing, describing it as a waste of time and taxpayer money. I agree with Mr. Mandel-- this is a mere show and is not one of the serious issues with intercollegiate athletics that needs to be addressed.
