Playoff PAC, a group opposed to the current, bowl-based system of determining the national champion in college football, is filing complaints with the Internal Revenue Service about the Fiesta, Orange and Sugar Bowls, charging them with paying excessive salaries that violate their tax-exempt status, the Associated Press reported. The CEO of the Sugar Bowl, for example, earned $645,000 in 2009, $200,000 more than he earned in 2007. Bowl officials are defending their operations as legitimate and accuse Playoff PAC of simply trying another way to attack the current championship system.
