As I am sure some of our readers are aware, I wrote a piece analyzing the antitrust problems with the BCS a few weeks ago. Enjoy the update.

BCS Antitrust Update
ESPN reported today that the "Senate Judiciary's subcommittee on antitrust, competition policy and consumer rights" will conduct hearings on the potential antitrust issues presented by the BCS system for selecting a national college football champion. Sen. Orrin Hatch of Utah said that "[he] would introduce legislation 'to rectify this situation'" as the system "has proven itself to be inadequate, not only for those of us who are fans of college football, but for anyone who believes that competition and fair play should have a role in collegiate sports."
