    It’ll obviously be worth more money down the road with expansion so why secure contracts now.

    The championship game is still the championship game, though, right? Like the Super Bowl doesn't become more valuable because you add a wild card game, I presume. Even if the overall package increases. And you don't change the final location because you add games at the beginning of the playoffs.

    They have multiple dates bookmarked so they clearly have expansion in mind. I'm not sure I agree that they don't have any idea of what expansion looks like.

    The longer you wait the better the bidding war. Not like it needs to be decided more than a year out logistically.

    I'm not gonna act like I know everything that goes into the planning, but I assume they plan all these major events 4-5 years in advance for a reason. We already know the next 4 Super Bowl locations, the next 5 Final Four locations.

    Sure you can squeeze a few more dollars out, but it's a partnership and the localities want to plan shit to make it as good an experience as possible. Houston built a badass hotel downtown to go with the Super Bowl in 2017. They did the same when they hosted the 2004 Super Bowl. Super Bowls are bigger than CFP games, but the idea is basically the same. You need a lot more than 12 months do things of that magnitude.

    The further in advance you do these things the more potential bidders there are.

    You should change that but don’t plan on your team playing there in January 2025

    My biggest are Denver and Miami probably. Bunch of midwest/rustbelt cities I haven't more than laid over or driven through.

    I don't think anything is ever going to top Dublin for football travels in terms of uniqueness.

    I wish they'd put a bowl game in Europe or somewhere cool overseas. I'd be one of the few South Carolina alumni interested in attending.

    If I could get a free trip to any 5 US cities I haven't been to: Las Vegas, New Orleans, San Francisco, Portland, Santa Fe

    Both are worth visiting for sure but unless you're a big gambler I think New Orleans is a way better time than Vegas.

    Feel like Jazz Fest is the best time to go in terms of seeing music and having big crowds but not as crazy as Mardi Gras or New Years.

    There will probably always be room for improving the NIL setup, especially right now when few rules exist, but I guess I missed when Saban urged national legislation on coaching salaries, facility improvements, ticket prices, staffing limits, tax deductions on contributions to the athletic department and all the other items he directly benefits from that contribute to the imbalance that exists today.
