Granted, I haven't read anything into this yet, but... 6 semifinal games? Are the finals going to be played as a triple threat game? Triangular field?

The problem with it is that there are already several college football playoffs.

Which, in all likelihood, won't actually be a playoff

FTFA: "Premiere Sports Management in Overland Park, Kan., was hired to help come up with a name and brand the new system."

I bet there was a little extra satisfaction hidden in a wry smile when they deposited that check.
"Great work guys, take tomorrow off for 18"

/ Where did I go so wrong?

At least it's a name that won't get in the way if/when they expand the play offs further.

Oh it will come to that eventually. They just haven't sold the rights to the part in front of "College Football Playoff" yet. But there is some hope out there as the B1G dropped the leaders and legends crap and went with a simple east-west alignment. I think that whole fiasco may be partially responsable for the NCAA taking the K.I.S.S. route with the playoff nomenclature.

NO the semis rotate between 6 sites on a 3 year rotation.

They also haven't sold of the right to the end of "College Football Playoff"

Would love to see something like:

The Capital One College Football Playoff presented by Bank of America
The Pepsi College Football Playoff presented by Coca-Cola

Yeah, that makes more sense... but I was kinda getting used to the idea of a tri-ball final. :(

As has been mentioned in this thread already, this name just feels like a placeholder before they are able to sell off the naming rights to the highest bidder for billions of dollars.

farking playoffs...i can't wait for the future 32 team dec/jan madness!  now we don't have to watch the regular season, an 8-4 team can win it all, and lisa in accounts payable wins the office pool picking based on favor colors.

CBS Sports football columnist Dennis Dodd sat down with Premier president Gary Heise and chief marketing officer Mike Goff to talk about Premier's involvement in the branding and identity of the new college football playoff

It's actually a brilliant move.
By calling it that, they get to bilk (read: stalk, harass and threaten) every business or organization who wants to have a College Football Playoff watch party, show the game on TV at their bar, or advertise grocery store or happy hour specials, for royalties related to using the words "College" "Football" or "Playoff" in any media, marquee, sign taped to the door, or other public display.
If you don't comply, the NCAA lawyers will be knocking on said door, and insist that you deposit in their briefcase an amount equal to 10 times your revenues during the entire football season.
Of course, it will be to ensure the integrity of the game, and to make sure those Student Athletes™ don't get exploited.

It's amazing that in this day people don't realize that the players get paid.  They get a check each semester from the universities in addition to their tuition, gift packages, and medical insurance.

And these two comments neatly capture why they chose the name "College Football Playoff". The first is true, and they want everyone to think the second is true.

You just refuse to admit this is the only playoff that matters.

Not a troll, nobody gives a shiat about the other football playoffs in other divisions and march madness only took off when the NCAA forced teams to compete instead of playing in the NIT, then after picking teams very few people care.
