07:29 AM ET 10.27 | ABC 4 News has learned the state of Utah is dropping its plans to sue the Bowl Championship Series. For years, Utah's Attorney General has been threatening to sue college football's "BCS." Mark Shurtleff wanted to sue the BCS because he thought it was an illegal monopoly, even referring to it as a "cartel." Utah's Attorney General felt small football programs, perhaps, like the University of Utah and BYU, were being unfairly kept out of championship games. But now, Shurtleff is - legally speaking - punting the case away.

Without a fair legitimate playoff, similar to the NFL ,it will continue to be a monopoly and there will be 4 out of conference games against outclassed teams.
