Argument: Opponents of CF playoffs care about money, not academics

Issue Report: College football playoffs


Michael Shull. “BCS No More: College Football Needs Playoffs to eliminate the BS.” College Sports Fans.: “So there you have it, a 16-team playoff format. Critics will begin with arguments like ‘that’s too many games for these student athletes’ or a focus on the academics and the hardships these college students would be under if they advance to the 16-team playoff and keep playing. My counter to that is that academics did not decide the 12th game that was recently added to everyone’s schedule in the Football Bowl Subdivision, and academics don’t seem to matter in breaking the Texas-Oklahoma-Texas Tech debate for the Big 12 South title and Big 12 Championship debate, so quit saying you care about anything other than money.”
