No one that has any say in the algorithm has any vested interest in this "business" you speak of. Voters don't care about it being good for "business" nor do the computers that have algorithms that rank teams. TV networks and universities certainly have a business interest, but they don't have any say in the algorithm. This business isn't going to get them more votes nor is it going to artificially inflate their strength of schedule when playing Pittsburgh, Boston College or Wake Forest. The whole "Notre Dame draws ratings" card is a fictional narrative as far as the BCS formula is concerned.
