Obama favors NCAA football playoff

Subversive terrorist-loving socialist:
In an interview with "60 Minutes," Obama addresses a subject college football fans have debated for many years, and says he will use his influence to create such a system.
"If you've got a bunch of teams who play throughout the season, and many of them have one loss or two losses, there's no clear decisive winner. We should be creating a playoff system," he tells CBS' Steve Kroft in an interview to be broadcast Sunday.
According to Obama's proposed system, eight teams would play over three rounds to settle the national champion. "It would add three extra weeks to the season," he said at the conclusion of a wide-ranging interview. "You could trim back on the regular season. I don't know any serious fan of college football who has disagreed with me on this. So, I'm going to throw my weight around a little bit. I think it's the right thing to do."
Not a lot of "serious" college football fans in Chicago, I guess. And I suppose he'll have ACORN "volunteers" picking the playoff teams . . .

  1. If serious fans are so in favor of a playoff, why does the BCS system persist? Seems to me that the survival of the bowls demonstrate that most serious fans like the current system.

    Most of the agitiation for playoffs seems to come from sports writers who a) don't love college football, b) need something to fill air time.
