WTF.. I am not a person to really get into politics. I really think all politicians like to hear themselves talk. Will someone smack these guys in the face and get down the real issues that face this country.

Screw it.

I'm a Libetarian-conservative and normally against this type of thing, but there's no other way BUT this option.

None.

Name me another way a playoff is going to happen? Are the School Presidents and Conference Commissioners finally going to be open to such an idea? No, never in a million years. The BCS conferences want to keep the money all to themselves and ensure the Kent State's of the world don't get their fair share or shot like in say, NCAA Basketball. I am of the belief that if nothing can be done, than the Gov't should be brought in as the very last solution. And frankly, this is at the last solution, and besides 85 PERCENT OF COLLEGE FOOTBALL FANS WANT THIS, that's certainly higher poll numbers than people who want health care reform, etc.

If this is what it takes, I'll betray my political leanings on this and be in full support of it.

Hey and better they work on this, then screwing us over with a bad healthcare bill or piss more of our money down the drain.

I hope this gets passed and the BCS dies a quick death and we are talking about Ohio State's upcoming first round home playoff game in the Shoe this time next year.

This is ridiculous. At least they took the time to win a two front asymmetric war, fix the economy, healthcare, and social security before getting to this. Oh, wait.... ehhhh, forget it.
Coming from a Wolverine, we're the football equivalent of a formerly abused wife of a meth addict who just remarried the safe nice guy. We're just glad we have someone who's aware that it's a rivalry and that tackling on defense is integral. Baby steps.

If this gets pushed to the forefront ahead of them legislating away my ability to play on-line poker I'm all for it.

Just got a 6 month reprieve on the poker because they determined everything else on their plate is a little more important than the UIGEA legislation.

But fer crissakes....

They're going to stop my sports betting in April or May too from what I read.

On the other hand while they arent working on it, at least they cant screw it up further.
In the end, we're all "only for a limited time," you guys.
