(U-WIRE) REXBURG, Idaho -- Bowl Championship Series coordinator, Kevin Weiberg and five others representing different bowl games were present, Dec. 7, for a congressional hearing on the state of the BCS at the request of the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
The hearing, chaired by Republican Joe Barton of Texas, turned into a two-hour question and answer session in which members of Congress drilled Weiberg and his colleagues about why college football is the only collegiate sport that doesn't hold a postseason tournament to crown a champion, and whether the system is more favorable to teams of certain conferences when deciding the BCS bowls.
