Coming soon: More college playoff teams

The college football season gets underway today and the major topic of conversation isn’t whether Ohio State can repeat as national champion, but whether the highly successful playoff format should be expanded beyond four teams.

Last year, more than 33 million Americans watched the inaugural playoff-format national championship game between Ohio State and Oregon. Three playoff games produced sellout crowds. Doubling the playoff field would mean seven playoff games. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out that the NCAA could generate more TV revenue by adding four teams to the mix.

But money isn’t the only factor.
