For more than a year, Smokey Joe Barton's been trying to kill the Bowl Championship Series -- most recently, of course, with H.R. 390: College Football Playoff Act of 2009, which would ...
... prohibit, as an unfair and deceptive act or practice, the promotion, marketing, and advertising of any post-season NCAA Division I football game as a national championship game unless such game is the culmination of a fair and equitable playoff system.
Last week, the bill was forwarded to the full House Energy and Commerce Committee, and, hey, if nothing else, Politico reports today, Barton's latest bit of "nutty" legislation is good news for lobbyists working for those pro and con, as "college football is bringing big bucks to K Street."
