House Subcommittee Approves College Football Playoff Legislation

We assumed it had to happen eventually. . . . From ESPN:
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.
Doubt this goes anywhere.


  1. What the hell is this about? Did all of our legislators go to the Nancy Pelosi School of The Constitution Doesn't Matter? Can someone point out where Congress gets the authority to set such demands? Is college football "commerce?"
