Congress is trying to legislate the college football national championshipSubmitted by shaq on Wed, 12/09/2009 - 22:13
Hard to believe.
"A House subcommittee approved legislation Wednesday aimed at forcing college football to switch to a playoff system to determine a national champion, over the objections of some lawmakers who said Congress had more pressing matters on its plate.
The bill, which faces long odds of becoming law, would ban the promotion of a postseason NCAA Division I football game as a national championship unless that title contest is the result of a playoff. The measure passed by voice vote in a House Energy and Commerce Committee subcommittee, with one audible “no,” from Rep. John Barrow, D-Ga."
Only 1 no? What the hell is going on up there. They are totally brain dead.
