These people need to not have power:
Plains state senators fretted Thursday over a major impending realignment in college football's major conferences.
Lawmakers representing states with universities in the Big 12 conference urged against moves that would break up the conference, and explored options to affect the schools' decisions. [...]
Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) [...] said his staff is exploring options through nonprofit and antitrust laws to approach the realignments.
"I'm concerned about what's happening the Texas universities and the PAC 10 and what would possibly be leaving some Big 12 teams out in the cold," Grassley said in a Wednesday conference call. "All I can tell you is my staff's looking into what can be done from a non-profit, anti-trust standpoint."
