By:  Van Arsdale                                                H.C.R. No. 46 

WHEREAS, The Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was created to provide a national championship game featuring the top two college football teams in the country and a consensus national champion, but it has failed to do so for three out of the last five years; and WHEREAS, The recent decision of the Associated Press to disallow the unauthorized use of its poll by the BCS, citing that the "BCS has damaged and continues to damage AP's reputation for honesty and integrity" by association, illustrates the widespread contempt for the BCS system and presents a timely opportunity to redress the problems; now, therefore, be it RESOLVED, That the 79th Legislature of the State of Texas hereby express support for the abolition of the Bowl Championship Series.
