Feinstein known for such works as A Good Walk Spoiled, A Season On The Brink, The Last Amateurs and Caddy For Life recently RIPPED the BCS a new one for the comments Oregon Athletic Director David Frohnmayer made following the BCS’s rejection (SHOCKING!!) of the Mountain West Conference’s recent request for an eight team D1 football playoff.
Feinstein makes the points eloquently and then says: “Final words to Frohnmayer and the other 66 BCS presidents on this issue: Shut up.”
On his blog he followed up by noting that he likes almost everybody he meets in his job with the exception of college/university presidents and that the BCS presidents are the worst of the lot: “I swear these people must have to pass a rigorous test in pomposity and hypocrisy before they are sworn in. Here’s the oath they take: ‘I David Frohnmayer promise to lie, obfuscate and say anything that comes into my head to defend the BCS, regardless of what might be right for the so-called ‘student-athletes,’ representing my school.’”

We guess the BCS (headed up by ACC Commish John Swofford) didn’t send flowers…
