If you need a reminder that political stupidity is bipartisan, then, brother, the two-man Congressional Collegiate Sports Caucus is for you.
You’re no doubt familiar with longtime scourge of the BCS Joe Barton, last seen apologizing to BP for the Gulf oil spill. But an eye needs to be kept on Barton’s new BFF Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), who, in explaining that he doesn’t understand why football is allowed to have an entirely different title system than every other collegiate sport, actually said this:
“There’s competition in every single sport, including here. Everybody who gets here wins by winning on Election Day in a contest…”
Perhaps somebody can take Cohen aside and quietly explain to him how football polls work. They have, like, voting and everything!
No wonder somebody like Bill Hancock can hold off change singlehandedly.
