I doubt you get much support for championship games and 3 rounds of playoffs in December

This year, B1G Championship game is Dec 4. Round of 12 would be no earlier than Dec 11, Quarterfinals Dec 18, Semis Dec 25 and Championship on Jan 1. No way college football puts its semifinals on Christmas day. I know most of us would watch, but masses are celebrating that day doing other things besides watching or traveling to games. Coaches will want more off time for injury recovery and preparation. Then there is recruiting that still has to happen. And, yes, these guys are still students and have to take semester finals. The CFP Championship game is not going to go off that early. Might even be later with more rounds of playoffs, plus some likely interest in providing players more off weeks (and an early start) throughout the season to get them through what could be a 17 game season.
