I doubt it.  For years now the bowl concept hasn't been as much about attendance and more about just having something to show on TV.  ESPN owns a good amount of games and the vast majority of the other bowl games have deals in place with ESPN/ABC to air the respective games.

So as long as ESPN/ABC get the rights to air most if not all these playoff games then I don't see there being any backlash from the Bowl community.

Believe it or not, I'm seeing some fcs fans actually  showing so-called concern about the amount of games this playoffs format will cause. Claiming they're concern about teams "MAYBE" playing 16 games,

agreed.  i don’t think expanding the playoffs will adversely effect most of the bowl games.  i suspect they will do the same thing that they did when they first went to the 4 team playoff.  they essentially took the 3 biggest bowl games and converted them to playoff games without changing the original name of the bowl games.

so with a 16 team playoff, i suppose they will take the 11 largest bowl games and convert them to playoff games.  first round there will be 4 games, second round will be 4 games, third round will be 2 games, and fourth round will be 1 game.  that’s 11 bowl games that can be converted to playoff games without losing the original name of each bowl game...
