"[E]ven under the convoluted 'competition principles' of antitrust, the [NCAA Bowl Championship Series] should be non-controversial. The antitrust argument against cartels is that they reduce output and access. The BCS has done just the opposite. It’s increased the number of postseason bowl games to comical levels, and schools that had no chance of playing in the highest-paying games now at least have a theoretical chance. What grinds the gears of institutions like Utah is that despite increased access under the BCS, they remain less competitive than other schools that, quite frankly, devote more resources to their football programs."
