    Phil Steele's Toughest Schedules

    Thought this was a pretty good way he figures it. IMO if you are not in the top 50 you played a very easy schedule.


    Northern Illinois is going to get slaughtered in the Orange Bowl


    If the site below does not work my sincere apologies. Maybe one of the mods could fix it

    Re: Phil Steele's Toughest Schedules

    It is interesting. We always get penalized in these things because we never play Alabama. Agreed, also on Northern Illinois. I think the speed and power of that game is going to leave their heads spinning. Not meaning to disrespect them, they just aren't ready to take that step up in weight class. What is sad for fans is that N. Ill and several other teams could have swapped places to present more entertaining (and fair) football games. They'll get a lot of money, though.

    Here is the litmus test, what would you pay for a thirty second advertising slot in the break between the third and fourth quarter of the Orange Bowl? Me, either.

    About advertising, why is the NC game on a Monday night rather than prime time Saturday night? Talk about stupid, I know they have been doing it since the BCS started but it's just dumb.

    A MS State guy at work used to say "We play a much tougher schedule than you". I responded..."Of course, you have to play Alabama, we don't".

    Problem is that the Bowl is going to be making money, not N. Ill. They're probably getting stuck with a fee for tickets they can't sell that will put them at a net loss for the bowl.

    I believe it has to do with the NFL commandeering that Saturday night for a playoff game.

    I think the Florida-OU and Alabama-Texas games were played on a Thursday. If I'm not mistaken, I believe next year's championship game will be played on a Tuesday.

    I myself would rather watch a good college FB game on a Saturday night then any pro game, and I live within a 5 min drive from the new MET Life Stadium where the Jets & Giants play AND I am a season ticket holder to both....Who SUCK

    You don't even want to know want the PSL's cost me. I have 10 Giant Tickets (which I sell for face to people who are RABID Giant fans) and I have four Jet tickets. These I keep because my sons are Jet fans (poor b a s t a r d s!)

    And IMO the new stadium SUCKS. There was NOTHING wrong with the "old" Giant Stadium.....All about PSL's and making money

    I agree with you. Unfortunately, most of the nation does not.

    The LSU - Oklahoma game was on a Sunday night, and as been mentioned, the Bama-Texas game was on a Thursday.

    (In an old southern trailer park redneck beer in hand marlboro light in other and camoflauge cutoff shorts man's voice) If a tablet was good enough for Moses and the 10 Commandments then by god they are good enough for my children in school today!!!!!!!
