College Football Playoff would be a big moneymaker

38
"Economists and television consultants value a playoff system around $600 million to $1.5 billion per year, depending on the number of teams included. That’s a major increase from the more than $125 million per year the BCS currently receives annually from its contract with ESPN for the national championship, Fiesta Bowl, Orange Bowl and Sugar Bowl. The Rose Bowl’s contract with ABC generates another $30 million per year." If the new post-season earns this much money, the payout distribution will become one of the most important things in college football. It looks as though only 4 teams will be competing yearly in the playoff. If the leaders of the BCS conferences choose to use a participation based payout system, any conference that doesn't make frequent trips to the final four would be at a huge financial disadvantage.
