ESPN to buy rights to broadcast Title Game

Quote:
One reason those gentlemen are smiling today: Their conferences are about to get filthy rich. As part of Monday's meeting, the presidents authorized the commissioners to finalize negotiations with ESPN for rights to the new system. According to SportsBusiness Journal, the network has offered a staggering 12-year, $7.3 billion -- around $608 million a year -- deal for the rights to broadcast the national championship game, two semifinals and the four other host or contract bowls each year.

Just more evidence that the NCAA was idiotic for not considering this sooner. The NCAA playoffs are going to be absolutely huge, even with only four teams.

They're going to pay $87M per game, and not a single kid will see a cent of it.

Great. Now it isn't out of the realm of possibilities that every bowl's on ESPN.

And once they see how much money is it, they will expand.

And it should. Think an 8-team or even a 12-team playoff (with the four best teams getting a first round bye) makes the most sense for NCAA football.

Close enough. It's an NCAA event in that they're all NCAA institutions and they've voluntarily created that nonsense and conveniently hide from criticism about it by claiming it's not an NCAA event.

If the NCAA isn't running it and isn't profitting from it, than no, it's not an NCAA event.
