Goodness Gracious?

Goodness gracious, with all that's going on in the world right now and with national and state budgets being what they are, it seems like a waste of taxpayers' money to have the government looking into how college football games are played.

That's Bill Hancock's quote. Bill is the Executive Director of the BCS.

See, apparently the Justice Department wants to know why the NCAA doesn't have a college football playoff system and says there are "serious questions" about whether the current format to determine a national champion complies with antitrust laws.

First, we had the John Junker lap dance extravaganza but this seems, I don't know, more serious.

And Hancock's response is such a guilty tell.

I know the NCAA doesn't control the football championship and our administrators don't want them to.

Spokesman Bob Williams said Emmert consistently has said the NCAA is willing to move to a playoff format if schools with the nation's major football programs want to go that route.

Uh, huh, Mark. I'm sure you are cool with that!

Since 89.7% of our readers are shysters, can some of you opine on this? Any chance we'll ever see a playoff? Anything here other than saber rattling?
