Closer to the End of the BCS

Many people know that the postseason festival in Division I football called Bowl Championship Series (BCS) and the rest of the bowl season is close to be over, as far as most college football fans are concern. The Department of Justice sent a letter to the NCAA seeking an explanation on how the BCS does not violate anti-trust laws. Some of the questions they asked are very important since NCAA members are mostly public colleges, and universities in other words they have taxpayers’ money as part of their income.  The questions are why the leaders of these bowl games cannot make enough revenue to the point they are no longer dependent on tax payer funds, and student fees. How the money they received does is spent, is it spent legally or illegally? Lastly, why there is not a playoff? In addition, what is the cost benefit analyst of not holding a playoff in Division I football?  These are lovely questions to ask and possibly force the NCAA to somewhat change its tune on a playoff in the highest level of football, but the a few questions missing.
  1.  How does an event planner that has an event at a time of year where most people spending money on gifts and travel makes almost 800,000 dollars per year? 
  2.  Who is responsible for the unsold tickets to the games?
Those of the some of the questions I would ask if I was in the Department of Justice.  Well, the BCS is close to being over and playoff is coming soon.
