While NCAA President Mark Emmert has responded to the Department of Justice's inquiry into the BCS, that has not quelled concerns over college football's postseason. The Justice Department has requested and will receive a meeting with the BCS this summer. This doesn't appear to be anything more than a preliminary examination of the system the BCS has set up. A federal investigation of the BCS system is not in the discussion yet.
BCS officials want to show that its system fits in with existing antitrust legislation. Though the BCS has made changes in recent years to open up its postseason games to teams that play in non-automatic qualifying conferences, critics of this system still aren't satisfied.
A playoff system like the Football Championship Series is often brought up as a replacement for the BCS, as the previous system still relied on conference tie-ins to bowl games and the polls establishing the national championship.
