Over many seasons, since the Bowl Championship Series (BCS) was established, college football's power brokers steadfastly refused to admit that a controversial system of picking two teams to play for the national championship had any weaknesses. They wanted to protect the current bowl system and they displayed a blind eye to fans' calls for a playoff.

Regarding the S.C. High School League decision concerning the so called "brawl" after the Camden-Dreher football game, the league has the legal authority to assess such penalties since the schools are, by their own action, voluntary members.
