Expanding College Football Playoff could be how programs find needed money

USA Today

It wasn’t a surprise to see that an overwhelming majority of athletics directors would be in favor of expanding the College Football Playoff, according to an anonymous survey published this week by Stadium.

As good as the four-team playoff has been in expanding interest and generating revenue for the 130 schools in the Football Bowl Subdivision, the system’s inherent flaws – leaving out at least one of the five power conference champions and further stratifying a small group of elite programs from everyone else – would eventually create an organic push to include more teams. The only question was how long it would take for conference commissioners and college presidents to get on board.

But now the conversation has a new wild card: The economic fallout for athletic departments that are going to be cutting expenses and looking for ways to expand revenue once the coronavirus pandemic is over.
