Antitrust Investigation of BCS?: College Football Under Legal Scrutiny by the U.S. Justice Department

"Justice Dept. has 'serious questions' for NCAA on college bowl process", according to CNN:
  • "The Bowl Championship Series system makes it hard for some college teams to qualify
  • Millions of dollars in revenue are at stake in the football bowl selection process
  • Assistant Attorney General Varney seeks an explanation"

    "(CNN) -- In a letter to the NCAA disclosed Wednesday, the Justice Department said it has received several requests for an antitrust investigation into the current Bowl Championship Series system...."
We sincerely hope this may be the beginning of the end for BCS, which is clearly a bowl monopoly with all of the negative characteristics that mark monopolies.
