BCS political fallout

This is from the California state legislature, and is thus merely symbolic. But could it be a sign of things to come?

The Republican leader of the California Senate has introduced a resolution calling for the dissolution of the Bowl Championship Series.

..."The BCS has proven in its seven-year existence that it is a failure," Ackerman said. "It has failed at the expense of California and other Pac-10 teams that have lost millions of dollars in revenue."

..."Politicking and campaigning have no place in college athletics," he said. "Teams should be judged on their performances on the field and not by the success of their PR campaigns."
