So you have the predicatable impasse...
SEC backing the Sugar bowl in New Orleans. Texas-centric Big XII backing Jerry World.

It seems logical to me how this plays out (but logic does not always win).

The "Champs Bowl" is really a secondary event (the "champ" from BOTH conferences may actually go elsewhere (to the "Final Four playoff")).
This Champs Bowl is a "cash cow" for both leagues, SO MUCH SO that they've stated they'd almost prefer to NOT host a NC semi-final game.
This is an important point.

Nobody has figured out where the champs of the B1G/PAC, Big XII/SEC, ACC/whomever go when the Rose / Champs / Orange host a semi-final game.
Since the Big 5 conferences get to keep all the $$$ from those bowls when those bowls DO NOT host a semi-final,
PERHAPS it makes sense for them to forgo the semi-finals.

Jerry World has the huge 100,000+ seating capacity, and would probably PREFER to host semi-finals / NCG's than the champs bowl.
So maybe the deal is for the Big XII to give into the SEC and have the Sugar host the "Champs Bowl" annually,
in exchange for the SEC (along with the Big XII) endorsing Jerry World (Cotton Bowl) hosting a semi-final / NCG annually.

I did a projection of what the new post with the 7th Midmajor bowl would have looked like over the past 4 years.

A reminder- top 4 get in the playoff unless 5 is a conference champ and 4 is not (this is something that the selection committee might do), and I used real bowl selections when possible. Also B10/P12 are the only teams that will ever play in the Rose Bowl and same goes for the SEC/B12 in the Champions Bowl; ACC/ND vs B10/SEC in the Orange; and Midmajor vs B12/P12 in the 7th Bowl. This leaves one bowl for at large teams which I filled in the with highest ranked team remaining.

2008
Playoffs 1 Oklahoma v 5 USC (non-SEC champ Alabama passed over for P10 champ)
Playoffs 2 Florida v 3 Texas
COMPLAINTS Alabama getting passed over and undefeated Utah not getting a chance

Rose 8 Penn State v 17 Oregon (highest remaining P12 passes over a few higher ranked teams but spot is guaranteed)
Champions 4 Alabama v 7 Texas Tech
Orange 14 Georgia Tech v 10 Ohio State (highest remaining between B10/SEC/ND)
Midmajor 6 Utah v 13 Oklahoma State (highest remaining between B12/P12)
At Large 9 Boise State v 11 TCU (highest remaining bumps 12 Cincy whose no longer AQ could have picked up 15 Georgia for a more interesting game)
OUT OF LUCK BELLYACHE-RS 12 Cincy 15 Georgia 16 BYU

2009
Playoffs 1 Alabama v 4 TCU
Playoffs 2 Texas v 3 Cincy
COMPLAINTS Florida and Boise getting left out

Rose 7 Oregon v 8 Ohio State
Champions 5 Florida v 19 Oklahoma State (highest remaining B12 passes over a few higher ranked teams but spot is guaranteed)
Orange 9 Georgia Tech v 10 Iowa (highest remaining between B10/SEC/ND)
Midmajor 6 Boise State v 18 Oregon State (highest remaining between B12/P12 passes over a few higher ranked teams but spot is guaranteed)
At Large 11 Virginia Tech v 12 LSU (highest remaining)
OUT OF LUCK BELLYACHE-RS 13 Penn St 14 BYU 15 Miami 16 WVU 17 Pitt

2010
Playoffs 1 Auburn v 5 Wisconsin (non-P12 champ Stanford passed over for B10 champ)
Playoffs 2 Oregon v 3 TCU
COMPLAINTS Stanford getting passed over

Rose 4 Stanford v 6 Ohio State
Champions 7 Oklahoma v 8 Arkansas
Orange 13 Virginia Tech v 9 Michigan St (highest remaining between B10/SEC/ND)
Midmajor 10 Boise State v 12 Missouri (highest remaining between B12/P12)
At Large 11 LSU v 14 Oklahoma State (highest remaining)
OUT OF LUCK BELLYACHE-RS none

2010
Playoffs 1 LSU v 3 Oklahoma State (to avoid LSU/Oregon rematch 1 plays 3)
Playoffs 2 Alabama v 5 Oregon (non-P12 champ Stanford passed over for P12 champ)
COMPLAINTS 4 Stanford missing again and LSU/OSU not getting to play lower ranked teams

Rose 4 Stanford v 10 Wisconsin
Champions 6 Arkansas v 8 Kansas State
Orange 11 Virginia Tech v 9 South Carolina (highest remaining between B10/SEC/ND)
Midmajor 7 Boise State v 12 Baylor (highest remaining between B12/P12)
At Large 13 Michigan v 15 Clemson (highest remaining, Clemson was selected over 14 OU in real life)
OUT OF LUCK BELLYACHE-RS 14 Oklahoma (could have been picked over Baylor)



Over the last 4 years in real life the SEC and B10 have sent 8 teams (max of 2 per year) to BCS games with the P12 send 6 and the B12/ACC/and midmajors+BE sending 5.

Assuming the max BCS bids are removed and more BCS bowls added, common sense dictated that the SEC would benefit...which they do by sending an additional 4 teams over the last 4 years for a total over 12 (avg 3 per year), however the biggest recipient is the B12 who would have sent an additional 7 teams to BCS game giving them a total 12 (tie with the SEC avg 3 per year). The PAC12 would have added an additional 2 giving them 8 (2 per year) while the Big Ten would have only gained 1 bowl giving them 9, and the ACC would have added another two giving them 6. And while at first glace the midmajors would appear to have added 4 bids due the loss of the Big East's AQ they only gain 1 at the expense of non top 20 WVU '11/UConn '10, plus #12 Cincy '08 who loses out to higher ranked midmajors Utah/Boise/TCU.

Thought I would share, found this setup extremely interesting.

Dennis Dodd blog article with report that ESPN has so far offered about $500 million per year to telecast the FB playoff games starting in 2014.Sounds like ESPN may be trying to keep the playoff tv rights from going to open bidding.Link at http://www.cbssports.com/collegefootbal ... 0-per-year

Ok, let me see if I understand all of this:

6 bowls: Rose, Sugar, Orange (sure), Fiesta, Cotton, Citrus (likely) - all played either New Years's Day or New Year's Eve. Does that mean 1:00 start on NY Eve even if that is a business day?

12 teams: Champs of ACC, Big 10, Big 12, Pac-12 and SEC for sure plus highest-ranked champ of "Group of 5" - that's 6
It looks like ND and r2nd choice from from SEC and Big 10 (chosen by committee, not the bowls) are also guaranteed access - does ND have minimum requirement? - if not, that adds to 9
The last 3 are wild cards based on ranking. Does that include 2nd team from Pac-12 and Big 12?

What do you think?
