Rep. Joe Barton of Texas, who has introduced legislation that would prevent the NCAA from calling a game a national championship unless it's the outcome of a playoff, bluntly warned Swofford: "If we don't see some action in the next two months, on a voluntary switch to a playoff system, then you will see this bill move."The federal government is set to spend $3.5 trillion next year, with a deficit expected to hit the unbelievable level of 12 percent of GDP. The president is seeking to impose a "blueprint" for federal takeover of health care, energy, and education. He is acting as a super-CEO for the finance and automobile industries. The country is bogged down in two floundering wars. And Joe Barton thinks the matter that deserves the attention of the Congress of the United States is how college football designates its "national champion." The best thing that can be said for this is that it's probably actually safer to have Congress screwing around with amateur sports championships than with matters of war, spending, and central planning.
