The Lege versus the BCS

It’s always heartwarming to see the Lege pay attention to the really important stuff. Take a look at HCR35, for the purpose of “Urging the institution of a playoff system to decide the NCAA football national championship in place of the current Bowl Championship Series.” According to the text of the resolution – note that this is not a bill, it’s a resolution, for things like proclamations and honoring people and whatnot – once you get past all of the “whereas”es:

RESOLVED, That the 81st Legislature of the State of Texas hereby respectfully urge the presidents of the public universities in Texas and the Big 12 Conference commissioner to work to promote the institution of a playoff system to decide the national championship in college football in place of the current Bowl Championship Series; and, be it further

RESOLVED, That the Texas secretary of state forward official copies of this resolution to the presidents of the public universities in Texas and to the Big 12 commissioner.

Boy, that oughta frost ’em. How can they resist the might of Smoky Joe Barton, the attorney general of Utah, and now the Texas Lege? We’ll have a playoff system yet.
