I added up the total bowl payouts from last year according to Wikipedia. Then I added the numbers up according to this article from the BCS http://www.bcsfootball.org/cfb/story/10297120 based on how they paid conferences. The total is just under $225 Million. Can a playoff make that much money for everyone involved?
