Never Fear, the U.S. House of Reps is Here (BCS Version)

Arriving fashionably late, as usual, the International House of Pork (IHOP)U.S. House of Representatives (HREP) has discovered that the BCS is a crappy way to determine a national champion. They are so upset about this that they are going to hold hearings, presumably to tap into the sea of dirty money upon which DI-A football floats. As a thought experiment, with which word is the following most accurate?
"[Politics/College football] is not just an exhilarating sport, but a billion-dollar business that Congress cannot ignore," said committee Chairman Joe Barton, a Texas Republican.
. . .
"Too often [college football/politics] ends in sniping and controversy, rather than winners and losers," Barton said. "The current system of determining who's No. 1 appears deeply flawed."
From what I've seen the response has been evenly and oppositely divided, while being universally negative. Reaction A: "Don't they have more important things to do?" Reaction B: "Well, better they spend time screwing this up than something really important."
