There is no evidence that the team playing opposite you in a championship game is worth a crap. Playing them and beating them may actually reduce your RPI. It is a total carp shoot, the 13th game. The game might help, and might hurt RPI.

No but the way a midmajor gets attention is with big wins and gaudy W/L records. A team that is 13-0 will get more attention from the public than a team that is 12-0. Besides you would take a huge SOS hit in your 8 conference games, what difference does it make if you play a 9th game against the 2nd best conference team? The computer numbers might take a hit but the bumnp in the human polls should offset it.

RE: Wow, blasting the conference president verbally....
on the other side, it would be nice to have a single conference champ. Also for the host school it could be a nice bonus to have that extra home game. At GS we were used to having a week or 2 notice before knowing if we were hosting a playoff game (though the early rounds were not attended well). Also, a bubble team may need that extra boost in SOS to get to the new P5-buster bowl (or whatever it's called). Lets say you have 2 teams (MAC and SBC) and each is trying to get into that big bowl game. The MAC teams wins their CCG and is given the invite while the SBC team doesn't.
The SEC was worried for the same reasons for their 1st CCG. But it worked out and has become a huge boost for the conference. I personally like the idea of 2 divisions and the higher seeded/ranked team getting to host the CCG.
