Who is more corrupt? The NCAA or The BCS?

Check out this post from SBN's New Blog BCS Evolution...

If the BCS is as American as the electoral college, then the NCAA is as efficient at governing tournaments as the US congress.

Lets entertain the caricature of a corrupt and oppressive conspiracy in college sports gerrymandering the rules to keep their power base intact and unthreatened.  The BCS is the front for a far deeper and profound cancer within the NCAA.  Who runs the BCS?  The 11 conference commissioners.  These people are under the same thumbs that drive the NCAA mafia.  Consider:

February 2009: MWC submits a BCS proposal
March 2009: NCAA Basketball tournament selection committee overlooks MWC members New Mexico  and SDSU and takes teams with a lower RPI for the final at-large bids.
April 2009: BCS responds to the MWC proposal with the observation that only their idea of the inclusion of a selection committee rather than the BCS standings had merit

Or: MWC get back in line, or else!

By keeping the championship system in the hands of the conference commissioners and bowl sponsors the BCS keeps the NCAA's ancient and dirty politics out of college football.  While some accuse the BCS of violating anti-trust law, let's not forget the US Supreme Court found the NCAA has violated anti-trust laws in its revenue sharing and TV coverage rules of the 80's.  The BCS is at least innocent until proven guilty.

Whoa!

Can you say Chicago-style politics?

Follow the money baby!!!
