Ok, so there’s been a lot of talk about how many of the tickets to tonight’s game are now below face value. And I understand the host venue will lose about $10MM on the event.

I contend that there is no reason for the national championship game to be played in a venue other than Miami, New Orleans, Dallas or Atlanta. Why? Because in the last 40 years, there’s only been 11 occurrences where a team from the South didn’t either win it outright or share a championship. For purposes of this argument, I’ve included Oklahoma and South Florida in the definition of the South. Please note this is not an SEC discussion, but rather the South in general.

Is there a compelling reason to think otherwise? Because regardless of participants next year, New Orleans won’t have any trouble selling out.

I could couldn't care less about whether the game or the stadium is profiting from the game. Ticket face values atrat arounf $400, more or less.

Levi stadium, who cares, that isn't college football. Rose bowl, Orange bowl, Cotton bowl, and maybe Fiesta bowl. That is college football, enough said.

I would include the Sugar Bowl long before the Fiesta since it was one of the original big four. And probably the best venue of all of the others.

I would unilaterally exclude the Firsta Bowl because of 1986 (87) and 2002 (03).

What are you basing the “original big four” on?
Growing up in the 50’s & 60’s, we called the Rose, Sugar, Cotton, & Orange Bowls (all played on New Years day) the Big Four.

The same big four you mentioned. I also grew up in the 50's and 60's.

Definitely the Sugar bowl and not the Fiesta bowl. LOL! I forgot about it.
