    No kidding. Even with State no longer undefeated, I would think that's a more appealing game than Bama-Ole Miss.

    Agree. State/AU or Texas A&M/Arkansas would be better games. I think they went with Bama because the game will probably rate the best even though it will be the most lopsided of the 3..

    Yep - CBS needs a compelling game NOT to pick Alabama right now.

    Can't really complain about such as that...if we're the best game that weekend then that is the slot you should expect.

    The problem has been the continuous 3rd or 4th tier selections for 11am in September when there are quite literally replaceable level alternatives to putting us in that slot.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    I usually don't read Pat Forde but this time he has a point.

    "Over the past six-plus seasons, this is your breakdown of kickoff times for Alabama and LSU for regular-season games:

    Before 6 p.m. local time: Alabama 44 games, LSU 17.
    Noon or 11 a.m. starts: Alabama nine games, LSU four. (Four of Alabamaís 11 a.m. starts have come in the last 15 games. LSU, which also has an 11 a.m. kickoff this week, hadnít had one previously since 2017.)
    After 6 p.m.: Alabama 28 games, LSU 55.
    Thatís a disparity."

    Two things not touched on yet.

    1. The stadium is now a bowl, so without a really fast breeze, the heat is somewhat trapped inside. The University may have to create an effective method of cooling the stadium (fans/misting systems/cooling seats) or make shading systems for the games in the future because;
    2. The world, particularly cities, is simply getting hotter, and without a massive move to paint all of our streets and roofs white, plant a zillion more trees, and burning far less gas/coal, games will only get hotter.
    The Golden Rule for internet postings:

    If you don't have anything nice to say, then say it with class, say it eloquently, and for goodness sake use the English language like your English teacher tried so hard to teach you.

    That happened ONE time - let's not pretend that that was a century long SEC tradition.

    This is proof that people still know how to lie using statistics.

    1) "Before 6 pm" includes ALL CBS GAMES telecast at 230 pm.

    I mean, this does not require Einstein's brain to figure out, folks.

    His "last six-plus seasons" means he's including 2013 (Byrne's started his cherry picking with 2014).
    We played 3 games on CBS in 2013, the "maximum" of 5 in 2014 - and then SIX in 2015 (including four games in a row with an off week), five more in 2016, three in 2017, and five in 2018. (Of course, you have to subtract the six LSU-Alabama games from this list as far as start time).

    2) Common sense tells you that if one team plays more games at 230 because they're the draw then the non-draw team plays at a different time.

    3) The micro analysis going on on this thread is pretty amusing.

    Folks, you can't go look at LSU's games and our games and say, "Oh but they play, we play, blah blah blah."

    You have to figure WHAT ARE THE OTHER GAMES PLAYED THAT SAME DAY. If LSU is playing Auburn on the same day Alabama plays Kent State - as happened in 2016 - then it doesn't take an advanced degree to figure out why LSU plays at five pm and Alabama plays at 11 am.

    And then you have to figure the other games that same day (CBS picked Tennessee-Florida).

    It's not "LSU has some sway in the conference" or any other conspiracy theory, folks. It's VERY simple - "what makes money."

    Fans don't think like executives because fans aren't responsible for financial results. I don't like 230 games in September, either, but it is what it is.
    My New Year's resolution for 2019 is this year I'm not going to drink anymore. I'm not going to drink any less, either.

    I was married for 25 years, but if I'd killed her on the honeymoon, I'd have been out in less than 20.

    Re: UA Administration Starting to Voice Displeasure with So Many Daytime Games

    The argument here - and I appreciate what Forde is noticing - is that LSU has a tradition of rowdy night games, and the SEC has largely allowed for that. There is a disparity in the number of non-conference day games that Bama has played since the SEC Network came online - which is why everyone is using 2014 as a baseline. I know Bama is a ratings boost, but that has made for a very unpleasant experience for fans at the games. Simple as that.
