Ari Fleischer Sports Communications, a sports public relations firm that works with NFL and Major League Baseball teams, was hired Saturday by new BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock to “highlight the positive aspects of the BCS.” Fleischer may have trouble declaring mission accomplished, because this college football issue doesn’t just fall on party lines. Even if they disagree on many national issues, Democrats and Republicans alike at least share similar views on the BCS. Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) chaired a hearing last spring to protest a system that entails six of the 11 Football Bowl Subdivision conferences having guaranteed spots in the five BCS games. Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) sponsored a bill deeming the national championship game invalid if it’s not determined by a playoff, comparing the current system to communism. Then again, Fleischer is used to standing against a wave of opposition. — LA Times
