Government to BCS: Watch Yo’self! Maybe.

Ready for a college football playoff system? Yeah, I thought you were. Well, get excited, because according to Inside Higher Ed, it’s being…EXPLORED!

The Obama Administration has assured Sen. Orrin Hatch, a Utah Republican, that it is exploring options to deal with concerns raised by Hatch and others about the Bowl Championship Series. Hatch has asked for an antitrust investigation by the Justice Department, and the administration said it is reviewing that request. A letter to Hatch said that the administration also is “exploring other options that might be available to address concerns with the college football post-season.”

You may remember that Hatch brought the issue to the table after his state’s undefeated Utes absolutely dismantled a heavily favored Alabama team in 2009’s Sugar Bowl. Could this be the first definitive example of homerism being for the greater good? We’ll see where this “exploration” takes us.
