“Potentially the defendants are your own clients.”

Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff hasn’t given up his quest to sue the BCS on anti-trust grounds, but he’s got a couple of tough road blocks to overcome:  one, Utah can’t afford the suit and two, AGs from other states aren’t likely to join in because in many cases that would result in them suing the major universities and school presidents that they ordinarily represent.

Hence Shurtleff’s lobbying of Obama’s Justice Department to take up the cause… sometimes you’ve got to put your principles to the side when it comes to college football.  Go Utes!

    Thankfully Shurtleff is wasting taxpayer dollars on the important things in life.

    Wait, isn’t Utah moving into the Pac 10, and thus, into a BCS AQ conference? What’s the problem here, has he ever seen Utah State play? They’re never going to a BCS game anyway. Perhaps he loves BYU, but BYU is a private school and probably should be taking care of its own legal problems with the BCS.

    “Shurtleff condemned any violence toward lawmakers over their vote on health care reform”

    Shurtleff is too soft. He needs to toughen up his approach if he wants the revenue sharing program to go through.
