Another Thing To Thank Nixon For: The BCS

Ferentz gets in touch with his PSU roots:

Do you have a gripe with the Bowl Championship Series? Blame Richard Nixon.

At least that’s a theory Iowa football coach Kirk Ferentz tossed out earlier this week.

Ferentz, who grew up in Pittsburgh, was referring to the 1969 season, when President Nixon declared Texas the national champions and snubbed an unbeaten Penn State.

“Everybody was kind of mad about that in Pennsylvania,” said Ferentz, who was 14 at the time. “I think that’s probably why the BCS exists.”

H/T: SB.
