RCS: You mentioned potential lawsuits, among them is Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff's, who said on a radio program over the weekend that he is planning to ask the US Department of Justice to join his investigation against the BCS.

What do you think are the chances of Attorney General Shurtleff being successful in having the US Department of Justice pick up the case?

Sen. Hatch: Well, I don't know if he can get the US Department of Justice to pick up the case, but I would think they would be interested. This looks to me like a fairly good anti-trust case, which ought to be brought up. But, from the beginning, I've said that I would prefer to just have the BCS wake up and take notice of all the criticism they've received, rather than involving Congress or the courts.
