Who wouldn’t want more football, especially in the form of a larger playoff system? Washington State coach Mike Leach went on a rant earlier this week arguing that he’d like to see a 64-team playoff make its way to the sport.
According to CBS analyst Rick Neuheisel, the schools do not want that to happen.
Speaking on ESPNU Radio on SiriusXM on Wednesday morning, Neuheisel said that school presidents would not be in favor of an expanded College Football Playoff. And with the sponsorship deals that come with bowl games, it may be unlikely to happen anyway.
“The presidents across the country do not want college football to get any bigger,” Neuheisel said. “It’s already a pain in their backsides. It’s too big for them. They would love to shove it back into a box like a genie back into a bottle. …
“This is about a bowl deal between college football and the major conferences and these major bowls, and that’s where the money is.”
