BCS Director's Sensibility Almost Makes One Forget He's The Director Of The BCS

Bill Hancock, first executive director of the BCS, was hired to provide political cover to college football's ruling cartel, and as such is a man whom I am not predisposed to like. So it dismays me to report he's put me in the uncomfortable position of having to agree with him:

The head of the Bowl Championship Series thinks Congress "has more important things to do" than look into the way his group distributes money to college football conferences.

Still, BCS executive director Bill Hancock said Wednesday he will respond to a question-filled letter sent to him by two U.S. Senators.

Look, I'm no fan of the current system (though not a playoff proponent, either; I'd rather see things go back to the chaos of the old bowl system), but slimy Bill Hancock has a point: Y'all are Senators, right? Don't you have things to do?
