    Michale Wilbon leads the full court press against the BCS in today's Washington Post. Here is a quote from that article.

    I would love to see a playoff in NCAA division I. I don't know what else Obama will do as President. However, if he gets this done, that would be really good.

    Well they had a nice segment on this the other day on College football now, NFLnetworks college program. I won't say he can't. I will say he'll have to flex his mucsles a bit to get it done to get the 119 college presidents of the bowl lobby's sugar teat.

    How ?

    Lauch the justice department at them full bore with a billion dollar discrimantion suit. No way they can justify only six black coaches out of 119 institutions. First one up should be sodom on town lake....the oil leases they are reportedly going to sell this year are worth in the billions...and these are the same folks who decided that Galveston doesn't warrant 170 M investment for health care after a major disaster. They have basically said let Galveston and UTMB eat cake. Too funny. Quid Pro Quo. Sic'em Obama.

    I like the bowl system. But I see no down side for Obama on this one. Liberal institutions talking the talk....time to make them walk the walk.

    If Obama actually made that happen in his first term, I'd expect every one of you red posters in the No Spin Zone to vote him in for a second term. And if you didn't you'd be a bastard.

    If he were to actually do it, he'd probably have to cut federal funding for state schools that played in bowl games rather than a playoff. Hit em in the wallet.

    Now that I think about it, that'd probably be the dumbest way to do it, and I don't endorse that one bit.

    EDIT: Nevermind, read about suing for discrimination. I retract my last statement.
