Why it will be harder than you think to ever have a playoff

Posted by Bob Condotta

Seems like most fans I know would like for there to be a college football playoff someday, and I always hear (and receive via e-mail) all kinds of seemingly quick-and-easy suggestions for how it can be done.

Here's a great story that ran yesterday in the Orange County Register that details exactly why it will never be quick, nor easy, to get a playoff.

The story breaks down the complex financial entanglements and relationships that are at the core of the college bowl system, and don't figure to dissolve without a lengthy fight.

The best nugget --- the Music City Bowl spent $7,203 on an office miniature golf tournament in 2003 (we took 10 kids to Riverbend for like $100 a year or so ago).
