Chick-fil-A Bowl to bid for national championship and/or playoff semifinals

by Travis Normand

The shine of the new college football playoff is already starting to wear off.  No, I am not talking about the advocates that spent years crying for a playoff only to criticize and complain about the proposed system before the ink was dry.

I am talking about how the national title game and/or the semifinal games could be named something as prestigious as The Chick-fil-A National Title Game / Semifinal.  Yes, apparently the Chick-fil-A Bowl is looking to bid for the national title and/or playoff games.

Wait…what?   I thought we were leaving sponsor names behind us with the bowl games?  I mean, even the NFL has the Super Bowl instead of the Company X NFL Championship Game.

While we are partly used to names such as the Rose Bowl or Sugar Bowl, we have also become use to names such as the Chick-fil-A Bowl and the PapaJohns.com Bowl.  Of course, we associate the later with bowls of a lower tier.

However, if any part of this playoff is named after a fast-food chain, you can go ahead and start processing the fact that …. *gasp* ….. it’s all about the money!

I thought one of the main arguments against the bowl system was that the bowls were all about money.  I seriously doubt this new playoff will be about anything other than money.
