ESPN to televise college playoff

And the monopoly continues...........

ESPN will be the television home for the college football playoff that begins after the 2014 season, thanks to a 12-year deal announced on Wednesday.

The deal covers the national championship game and semifinals as well as bowl games that will be part of the semifinal hosting rotation in years they don't host a semifinal game. Earlier, ESPN announced deals with the Rose, Sugar and Orange Bowls.

The deal goes through the 2025 regular season (2026 bowl games).

This playoff system ain't gonna be enough. If they slot 4 teams, 3 will be SEC. If only 1 SEC team gets in there they'll probably run the table.

Controversies will never end until they go to a full blown qualifying playoff system with wild cards.

yeah, along with Eastern Carolina, for football anyway. With all this jockeying for position going on, I wonder if the NCAA is setting itself up for a true playoff system.
