It's almost time to for the annual "why can't we have a BCS/Div-I College Football Playoffs system?" talk. Despite the "these students would miss too much classroom time" BS, the other divisions appear to not have the same issues. Let's not kid ourselves. When you boil it all down, all who oppose it do so because of money. Div-I college football is a business. These colleges against a playoff system feel it would reduce the importance of some regular season games. If a team had a spot in the playoffs locked up with two games left, it would render their remaining games meaningless. Coaches would rest their top players. Less fans, less revenue for the businesses around the college which depend on the football season revenue. Less money for the colleges who depend on football revenue to support their other sports programs. The only other thing I can imagine as being an argument against a playoff system is having fans travel from playoff site to playoff site. That would be expensive. What these short-sighted individuals fail to realize is the revenue an 8 or 16-team playoff would generate. The NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament generates $545 million in TV revenue alone. It's quite possible a Div-I college football playoff would eclipse this by hundreds of millions of dollars. A playoff system could be a combination of home games for the higher seed and them use the current bowls. One of the better plans I've read is here: http://whitwatson.sunsportstv.com/2006/11/division-i-football-playoff-realized.html We can only hope one day enough people wake up and realize big this would be. I could see this being as big as the NFL playoffs if it were to happen.
