Rights & Reason: The Cult of Amateurism

During my national radio appearance on Steve Czaban's show last night, Steve and I discussed the antitrust implications of the Atlantic Coast Conference's expansion via the acquisition of three Big East Conference teams. For years, the debate in college football has been over creating a single playoff tournament to replace the myriad of bowl games and bowl alliances. As I explained last night, and in today's Initium, you'll never see a genuine playoff unless you take two wretched concepts out of play: amateurism and antitrust.
