Cowboys Stadium A Likely Locale For First College Football Playoff National Championship

As the college football playoff continues forming, one NFL owner already set in motion his plans to obtain the Holy Grail of the process. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, the organization and the monolithic Cowboys Stadium he built established a non-profit for the express purpose of bidding on the national championship. A consensus between conference commissioners was reached yesterday in Chicago where the top four teams, with emphasis on conference champions and strength of schedule, would be chosen by a selection committee. It represented the ideal choice originally and even though college executives seem destined to discount any version of common sense, wisdom reigned in the Windy City.

From here, a group of campus presidents will look to affirm the decision in Washington D.C. next Tuesday. Barring a surprise attack from the Palaeosaurus of Progress, Harvey Perlman, Nebraska chancellor, this edict shall pass. Then, media members, fans and those that reside on the intelligence scale of Harvey Updyke may commence widespread ruminating on the composition of the selection committee. Ex-coaches? Ex-media? Ex-girlfriends of athletic directors? All are viable candidates to pick exactly which teams profit immensely from the only Final Four with the power to diminish the publicity of the actual Final Four.

Commissioners appeared content with the notion of using the current BCS bowl sites as hosts for semifinals. That’s great news for the Fiesta, Orange and Sugar Bowls as their elite status faced a real adversary in playoff locales. The Rose Bowl isn’t going anywhere, there’s too much tradition and too much support to usurp its place in the postseason model. But following the 2013 BCS National Championship, Pasadena, California will bid for the right to the title game just like every other American city.

Expect New Orleans, Atlanta, Tampa, Indianapolis, New York, Houston, Los Angeles and Phoenix to join Dallas. Annually, one of them gladly forks over millions in college football purses in order to showcase a sporting matchup on-par domestically with everything but the Super Bowl.

And in January 2015, the inaugural game isn’t likely to be played anywhere Jerry Jones doesn’t own. Because when a man who runs a team nicknamed after the country and a city with a rehashed television of the same name sees something he likes, well there ain’t enough oil money in this region to convince him otherwise.
