“College football is bringing big bucks to K Street as lawmakers take aim at dismantling the Bowl Championship Series,” says a recent story in Politico.
A six-figure sum is being spent lobbying what really shouldn’t be a government issue. Millions more are being spent on other issues affecting college sports.
There’s even a PlayOff PAC that gives money to politicians who take an active stance on college football playoff reform.
True, the BCS playoff system could definitely use an overhaul. But that’s a job for the NCAA. Not Congress.
