AP: Obama renews plea for college football playoffs

WASHINGTON – President-elect Barack Obama says he still thinks there needs to be a playoff system for determining the country’s college football champion.

Obama, asked what he thought about Florida’s 24-14 victory Thursday night over Oklahoma in the BCS championship game, congratulated the Gators and said he’d sent a message to a friend whose son plays for the team.

At the same time, he said, “If I’m Utah, or if I’m USC or if I’m Texas, I might still have some quibbles.”

Obama said, “That’s why we need a playoff.”

President-elect Obama did not however comment on whether or not he agreed with the Fox commentators that Tim Tebow was indeed the second coming of Christ.
