Last month the College Guide included a piece about House legislation to create a formal college football playoff.

The goal of the legislation is to force college football to move from a haphazard series of bowls to a playoff system that will determine a national college football champion team. Well apparently the idea is moving forward because now the national bowl concept has its own political action committee.

Supporters of the national championship idea have created the Playoff PAC which, according to the Web site, is: “a federal political committee dedicated to establishing a competitive post-season championship for college football.” Playoff PAC “helps elect pro-reform political candidates, mobilizes public support, and provides a centralized source of pro-reform news, thought, and scholarship.”

Really, scholarship.
