So when the Justice Department requested a meeting with the BCS for some time this summer, most probably assumed that would mean late July or early August or something. Turns out they're actually meeting on the very first day of the 2011 summer, with CBS Sports reporting a Tuesday meeting.
The nature of the meeting is apparently a voluntary visit by Hancock to describe how the BCS system works to Department officials. By no means is it yet an antitrust investigation, though the Department has publicly pondered the fairness of the bizarre method used to determine the NCAA's premier sport, to which NCAA president Mark Emmert shrugged.
If anything is to come of this or something like it, it probably won't be for years. Go ahead and assume you'll be mad about one thing or another this bowl season, because it's good for you.
