On the other hand, NBA coaches have to deal with millionaire, moody divas that make more money than they do and can get them fired.
They get fired, they still collect millions for not working. Then they get another job. I would rather face that than greedy families of kids screwing up everything I spend all year busting my ass to accomplish.
The CFP is a joint venture owned and operated by the FBS conferences (all 10 of them). They negotiated the TV deal which runs until a couple of years after after the Big 12 TV deal does. The Big 12 appears to be a zombie league since ESPN and Fox each refused to bump up the TV deal up to allow expansion and will likely be divided up in a few years.
The CFP will then expand to 8 teams with the next TV deal and the conference title games will be the quarter final games.
That’s 7 games total for an 8 team playoff. Rotate between the 6 games in use now for the CFP and New Year’s 6 games (Cotton, Fiesta, Orange, Peach, Rose, and Sugar) and keep bidding out the title game like now.
