If Joe Barton's BCS Bill Is All About Making Lobbyists Some Dough, Then Good Work

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."
