College Football $$$ Registers

Well college football has pulled out the calculators and cash registers.
Cases in point:
**  Florida State University, aka, FSU, and Free Shoe U, has been floating trial balloons and contemplating (if they have that ability) in departing the green pastures of the ACC for the Big 12.  The only reason is $$ and the current and future payout schedules for football and basketball.  This could start another round musical conference chairs for sure.  Historic Bobby Bowden has come out and voiced his option that FSU should stay in the ACC.  This along with cupcake scheduling could insure FSU final four shots on a regular basis.  Cha-ching.
**  The SEC and Big 12 have just recently inked an agreement to have their respective champions square off in an unnamed bowl in an unnamed location, starting in 2014.  This is a mirror to granddaddy Rose Bowl with the PAC-12 and Big Ten.  Cha-ching. 
**  The Big Ten will present its’ first conference championship game in 2012.  Cha-ching. 
**  The PAC-12 will present its’ first conference championship game in 2012.  Gee.  Cha-ching.
**  Texas worked a great deal with the Big 12 to retain some additional revenue and start up a state high school video channel.  Cha-ching.
**  Notre Dame is in negotiations with the Peacock concerning extending, rewriting, renewing or otherwise   selling its’ Soul to NBC beyond 2015.  Hopefully they will not call on former athletic director Kevin White for advice.  Cha-ching.
**  The recent shuffling of West Virginia, Pittsburg, Texas A&M, Missouri, and a bunch of little people schools between Conferences.  Cha-ching. 
The Conference Commissioners plus Notre Dame are figuring out how to setup a playoff system for college football.  Something that has been edging in that direction since the demise of the traditional New Year’s Day classic bowl games.  Things are not over, we guarantee it.  Wait until the ink is dry on the final setup for the four team National Championship Playoff system is in place.
