Default BCS boss: System's not a trust buster

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. Bowl Championship Series officials believe they're prepared to fend off any legal challenges.

With the Utah attorney general investigating the bowl system for a possible antitrust violation, Atlantic Coast Conference commissioner and BCS coordinator John Swofford said the BCS has carefully considered the legality of its format.

``We've attempted to make every effort to make certain that any structure of the BCS is within the antitrust laws. Our legal people are comfortable that the BCS structure is,'' Swofford said during a Football Writers of American Association meeting. ``Obviously if there are any aspects of it that we should be doing differently, we would adjust that.''

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff announced his investigation Tuesday. Utah (13-0) was the only unbeaten school in major college football yet was left out of Thursday night's BCS title game between Florida and Oklahoma, each with one loss.

``We're not out there trying to test the antitrust laws of the United States of America,'' Swofford said.

Swofford reiterated that the majority of university presidents and athletic directors oppose an expansive NFL-style playoff for major college football.

Sad part is that with some conferences, they don't have anything to worry about because of the automatic bid of not being in the BCS. I wish there would be a lawsuit and blows everything up. Not because I want to see a lawsuit but I want a playoff dangit!
