Here is why some college football teams are more and more exploring the possibility of going independent.
Disney owns the rights for broadcasting the college football playoffs for 12 years, they paid $470 million for it.
That is sure to change if the playoff expands to 8 teams as it almost certainly will in the future.
The payouts this year to the four finalists Notre Dame, Clemson, Alabama nd Oklahoma is $6 million per team.
Of those 4, only Notre Dame gets to keep the $6 million, the other 3 must share with their respective conferences. You do the math, yes there is a reason to explore that great word, INDEPENDENCE.
