they just won't be full of boosters from the participating schools, unless the playoffs follow the suggestion of Dan Wetzel in Death to the BCS of having the first round games played at the home stadium of the higher seeded team (which, by the way, would overcome any objection based on playoffs making the regular season meaningless). But assuming we use the existing bowls/stadiums, people/fans are going to be far more inclined to attend if the games actually mean something. Just imagine if the top 16 teams had been seeded, perhaps with the first round games played at the home stadiums of the higher seeded teams, you would then have the top 8 facing off in four of the top bowl games (the Rose, the Sugar, the Fiesta, the Cotton, and the Orange), all of which could be played on New Year's Day) with the winners advancing to 2 semifinal games to be played this past weekend at two other top stadiums and the semifinal winners playing in the BCS national championship at one of the big stadium (Texas Stadium for instance because it's big and centrally located). I suspect all 15 games of the playoffs would sell out.
