RCS: What are the options for BCS reform legislation?

Sen. Hatch: Well I can't really get into that here. We could spend hours on that. The fact of the matter is, there are still some opportunities for the BCS to fix itself. But they ought to be fair and they shouldn't be giving any side an advantage over the others.

Personally, I'd like to see a playoff system where the truly best team can be the National Champion and teams from various conferences have an equal chance to fight for that if they can. But, in the end, I want BCS to come up with a solution. If not, then we do need to talk to the Department of Justice and the Federal Trade Commission. I personally believe that they've got to start looking at this and not just blatantly keep that elitism going that is detrimental to all these other schools. It's not right. If none of these approaches work, then we'll have to consider introducing legislation.
