I'm starting to think that it's not really the extra games that the presidents, conference commissioners, and athletic directors are really concerned about. I'm more inclined to believe that the friction against a true full blown playoff is due to the fact that it would make all other bowl games plummet in popularity and decrease the revenues for teams that don't make it into the 16 team playoff.
