and an inability and unwillingness to distribute revenues fairly.
[3mSports’ revenue allocation and revenue sharing and distribution systems now fairly disburse funds to all participants based upon performance, thereby also intensifying competition … it’s all about the competition]

“If an acceptable system were provided, I would be in favor, however it
seems regrettable to extend the season.”
24 Jul 2000 Univ.
of Virginia AD “I
am totally in favor of a playoff. I
believe the current bowl system will eventually collapse as we currently have
all the worst effects of a playoff without the benefits.
I find the argument that the players might miss some class laughable
since we have expanded the baseball, volleyball, ect. Playoff pools to 64 teams.
These sports miss more class in one season than a football player would

From an admittedly parochial view, why would the Big Ten want to give up the Rose Bowl? We have no intention of relinquishing, assigning, or delegating the authority, direction or policy making over bowl games or revenue to any other party.

Who really cares who the National Champion is? College football is about pleasing your alumni. If you can provide a representative team and go to a bowl, most alumni are satisfied.
