The state of Georgia really hates the BCS. Georgia lawmakers have passed a resolution 151-9 that states the NCAA should institute a playoff system and crown a “true national championship.” The resolution calls the BCS “the greatest disappointment of the 2007 college football season” obviously because their beloved Georgia Bulldogs didn’t make the BCS National Championship game in Arizona this past January. So thanks, Georgia House, for saying what we’ve all been thinking, only in a wildly inappropriate forum.
Wait, I’ve heard something like this before from nutty Georgia lawmakers. Elected officials from there seem to have a knack for showing they’re paying attention to what the voters really care about.
You have to love it when states do this kind of thing. I say it’s what makes America great. I could sit here and say they should stop wasting their time and taxpayer money and just worry about running the state or the country, or how they’re just another example of SEC fan run amok (like LSU fan). But the truth is that I feel exactly the same way. I love college football and, as an Indiana alum, I am petty and ruthless towards Purdue and the rest of the Big Ten. And I’m just an IU fan!
So sadly, I agree with the Georgia House one hundred percent. That probably makes me a crazy fan, but I don’t care. That’s what freaks me out the most. I should have some sort of angry take about this, but I absolutely agree. This BCS money-grab needs to disappear yesterday and it’s time the issue got more national support. So in this, an election year, keep in mind that the people we vote for really do have some control over the things we care about as a nation. Think about that when you’re in the booth. This is just the ground floor, people. We’re going nationwide with this thing! Free College Football!
