Argument: College football playoffs benefit more schools
Matthew Sanderson. "The conservative case for college football reform." The Hill. January 6th, 2010: "College football’s considerable institutional benefits discussed above — improved funding, publicity, alumni networks, and admissions applications — are not awarded through merit- or market-based methods. They’re largely distributed on the basis of legacy entitlements and backroom deals. By reforming college football, government would not play Robin Hood and give disadvantaged parties a 'fair share' of the trophy or the revenues. Reform’s only aim is for schools to have a 'fair shake' at earning these benefits through competition. Conservatives should favor this modest effort to eliminate stacked decks and instill competition."
