How the new college football playoff format can include everyone.

BCS1

As a a fan of a couple of ACC schools, I am satisfied to know the ACC has a contract with the Orange Bowl and access to the 4-Team playoffs, but doesn’t mean I have to be pleased with the overall landscape of college football. 5 Conferences have contracts with existing bowls that are likely to …
