Members of the US Senate, namely Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, are pushing for a college football playoff system. He's of the belief teams like the University of Utah are unfairly treated because they don't have the same opportunity as other "bigger" schools do to play for the National Championship.
Never mind the fact Utah has joined the Pac-10 (Pac-12), and if they were to go undefeated before bowl season they would certainly be able to play for the title. That's just a fact.
So it makes me wonder why in the world Orrin Hatch still gives a shit.
I've never been one to care about this issue, and even a playoff doesn't rectify the "fairness" issue which is being brought up members of the Justice Department. I mean, lets say 8 teams make a playoff, doesn't teams 9, 10, 11, whatever, still suffer the same injustice in not making the playoffs?
Congress should be paying much less attention to this issue, and if they feel the need to really focus on college sports I'd prefer they push NCAA Schools to start paying athletes on some level.
That's what I'm looking for.
I say this because if you truly care about educating athletes then you should start paying them to stay in school.
As for the playoff issue, there's something else going on here. Someone's campaign is getting a lot of money to talk about this pointless issue. That's my thought.
