STAY OFF THE FIELD: In Detroit, Drew Sharp writes under the header, "Politicians, Don't Worry About BCS." A group of political operatives have formed the Playoff Political Action Committee to raise money to support anti-BCS efforts, but the major bowls "have the ultimate power in this argument, and they aren't going anywhere." Sharp: "The BCS never will be perfect, but that was never the intent. There are many other inequities more deserving of political time than this" (DETROIT FREE PRESS, 10/21). CBS' Tony Barnhart said, "As a general principle, I do not want Congress anymore involved in my life than it already is … (but) I now believe that we have reached a point where the sport has simply outgrown the format." AP college football writer Ralph Russo said he believes there will eventually be a four-team playoff "if nothing else, just so the BCS can get the government off its back" ("The Tony Barnhart Show," CBS College Sports, 10/20).
