Does President Obama Think His Meddling in the BCS is Going to be Popular?

SI has a piece that shows that the Obama Administration is very serious about getting involved. See Justice Dept.: Obama administration may take action on BCS.

I am of course a big fan of how the system is right now. No Playoff!!!

However after listening to to numerous big fans of a playoff system on sports talk radio, in the media, on the Internet, etc they all seem to be against Government intervention. They suspect , correctly in my view, that this is open up a can of worms and give a precedent that will not have a productive outcome in the end.

There is still a huge AMOUNT of controversy over applying Title IX (Gender equality legislation) to college sports that has resulted in some major negative unintended consequences.
