US Justice Department Wants Answers From The NCAA

4 May

United States Justice Department’s antitrust chief asked in a letter to the NCAA for information on the current system regarding the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) on Wednesday. There has been numerous arguments about the current system because it prohibits some athletic conferences from the formula of choosing schools to pay in the NCAA major bowl games.

The letter from the Justice Department in part reads, “Serious questions continue to arise suggesting that the current BCS system may not be conducted consistent with the competition principles expressed in federal antitrust laws.” This letter was address to Mark Emmert, president of the NCAA written by Assistant Attorney General Christine Varney.

It’s important to point out that the NCAA isn’t required to answer questions according to the Justice Department.
