With football getting ready to take on Wisconsin in the Champs Sports Bowl and basketball gearing up to host Tennessee Tech tomorrow night (look for TrueCubbie's game preview either later today or tomorrow), there isn't a whole lot to cover involving FSU sports. Instead, we'll look at a story that didn't recieve very much attention when it broke this past Wednesday, but could have a big impact later on. It involves the potential demise of the BCS.
It shouldn't surprise anybody that the man behind the newest attempt to bring down the BCS is from Texas. Rep. Joe Barton, a Texas Republican, is trying to pass legislation that would force college football to move to a playoff system. The basic idea, according to Barton, is that marketing a postseason game as a "national championship" game would be a violation of the Federal Trade Commission Act, unless the game was a part of a playoff system.
It is still unclear whether or not Barton's attempt will be successful, but it sure is an interesting attempt. Let us know what you think by adding a comment and voting in the poll. To read more details click here.
