    Keep pushing me to stay home in front of my TV and I might just do that. This is ticking me off.

    Think he got enough of a cry from fans on social media last week to cause this. He had to respond to some irritated fans.

    Well there are 9 sec games that day and 7 are in the afternoon. The only night games are ND at UGA and San Jose at Ark.

    I am sure this was done to make sure all eyes were on the ND vs UGA game.


    LSU at Vanderbilt, 12 pm ET/11 am CT on ESPN or ESPN2 or SEC Network*
    Tennessee at Florida, 12 pm ET/11 am CT on ESPN or ESPN2 or SEC Network*
    Southern Mississippi at Alabama, 12 pm ET/11 am CT on ESPN or ESPN2*
    California at Ole Miss, 12 pm ET/11 am CT on ESPNU
    Auburn at Texas A&M, 3:30 pm ET/2:30 pm CT on CBS
    Kentucky at Mississippi State, 4 pm ET/3 pm CT on SEC Network or SEC Network Alternate*
    South Carolina at Missouri, 4 pm ET/3 pm CT on SEC Network or SEC Network Alternate*
    San Jose State at Arkansas, 7:30 pm ET/6:30 pm CT on SEC Network
    Notre Dame at Georgia, 8 pm ET/7 pm CT on CBS

    Yeah I know he was forced to, but the fact that it has been a number of conversations about it and still Arkansas vs SJSU is a night game shows you he doesnít have pull. I can understand if Florida vs Tennessee or Cal vs Ole Miss were in that night game over us, but cmon Arkansas vs SJSU. This is the biggest issue with allowing CBS to pick the game of the week. The reason us, LSU, and FLORIDA ARE 11 am kicks is to avoid taking viewership away from ND @ UGA.

    I don't understand how Awbern can get a 6:30PM slot on E***2 for the Green Wave and the Crimson Tide keeps having to suit up before the rooster crows. Get it together @SEC

    Bingo. Or, at least he isn't adept at negotiating from a position of strength, which the Alabama AD should have.

    Yes, Ark vs. SJSU is a night game, but more importantly it is the conflict game with UGA and ND. The conference will not put both the best team and best game at the "same" time.. The Arkansas game is at that time precisely because and so that everyone can watch UGA / ND...

    One problem with that logic.... Auburn vs Tulane and Tennessee vs BYU were both on when Texas and LSU were on. Even if it was all to get more views on one particular game there are better time slots than 11 am

    Did the SEC decide to play Arkansas at night, or was that an ESPN/SECN decision?

    Tennessee and even Auburn are not Alabama.

    I watched a lot of that BYU game, pairing it with tU/LSU. But I don't think there were a lot of other eyeballs on it beyond Mormons and Vols.

    The Conference is not letting its broadcasting partners do something that harms the Conference. The question is how long Alabama continues to quietly suck it up for the good of the "team". I just wanna make sure folk know this is not some sort of Alabama vendetta... the Conference is looking after the health of the conference.

    We know we can't have 7 games in the September night slots every week...
