College Basketball isn't as popular as college football, but it amazingly jumps from low ratings during the regular season to ratingon roids for the tourney. This amazing jump is made only by the fact that the tourney provides excitement and surprise. A CFB playoff system would take the current tv ratings and probably double or triple them seeing as how you would have a world full of new possibilities that you don't get with a 4 team playoff.
College football doesn't rat as well as the NFL either.The Oakland vs Jacksonville can go up against a Oklahoma v OK St., or LSU vs Florida and out rate it according to Nielson tv ratings. Having a smaller field of teams to pull from isnt hurting the NFL. They provide a playoff where 37.5% of it's teams can make the playoffs. Certainly having a 16 team playoff wouldn't kill things, it would only enhance it.
How the NCAA says they would lose money on this is beyond me....oh wait, the NCAA doesn't lose money on this, the thought of one of the top tier conferences not making as much money in case of an upset is the fear.
If you say something trivial and want it to sound important, just say your age before it.
