While it’s tough to get a handle on exactly how much money a Super Bowl brings into South Florida, some new numbers from the University of Alabama did shed some light on how much it cost to bring a team to the BCS National Championship Game.
The long national nightmare that was the Bowl Championship Series is no more. From now on, the new playoff system in college football will be called, “The College Football Playoff.”
Eventually, the Miami Dolphins may just write a check for the full amount of the planned renovations to Sun Life Stadium. The team promised Wednesday to pay back some money to the state if taxpayers help pay for the renovations.
While the future of the Super Bowl in South Florida remains in doubt; Sun Life Stadium will play a major role in the 2015 college football national championship picture.
So far, so good for the Miami Dolphins pitch to the state legislature for a renovation plan for Sun Life Stadium. The bill has passed its first committee hearing Tuesday by a unanimous vote.
The best news in college football for the coming season will be that it’s the final year of the Bowl Championship Series. That means starting January 1, 2015, a four team playoff will commence and it will start in the Rose Bowl and Sugar Bowl.
Alabama head coach Nick Saban had made it look easy since taking over the Tide, leading the team to three national championships in four years thanks to Monday night’s shellacking of Notre Dame. But for Saban, the time to celebrate is brief as he’s already looking to next season.
The BCS Championship Game’s initial television rating is up despite Alabama destroying an overmatched Notre Dame team.
Well, if that absolute mauling of the Fighting Irish didn’t prove that 1.) Notre Dame isn’t back; 2.) Notre Dame doesn’t belong on the field with the SEC Champion; and 3.) the SEC is the best conference by leaps and bounds in college football nothing will. It’s a post-BCS edition of the Agenda today.
The Bowl Championship Series National Championship game is uncharted waters for the Notre Dame Fighting Irish in recent years. The Fighting Irish haven’t won a national championship since the 1989 Fiesta Bowl.
