## Presidential Championship Series

As college football nears the end of its season, there is only one other American pastime that engulfs the country in endless furious debate about who is the best – presidential politics.

For years, sportswriters, fans and coaches were mired in an unending morass trying to determine who was the “true champion” of college football, until a group of geniuses created the Bowl Championship Series (BCS).
