Pro teams play 16 games in the regular season. Right now the final 2 in the college championship game play 15. Top round draft picks are already opting out of post season games to reduce risk of injury. And there is still this pretense that college football isn't the minor league for pro football. The NCAA would have us believe that the players are "student athletes". The NCAA made up of the colleges make a lot of money on the performance of those student athletes and there scholarships are the contracts that can be terminated if their performance drops. So, there are a lot of angles. I thought the BCS worked and allowed other bowls to still have some meaning. Now they just mean extra practice time for up and coming teams.
