I mean it's not like they are out to get us. It makes sense to put us on at 11 with the schedule that day.

They are trying really hard to make sure I go to as few games as possible.

We haven’t played a non-conference game at night since 2017 against Colorado State, yet LSU and Auburn get them almost every Saturday.

I’m not saying they’re actively out to get us, but I think a stronger case needs to be made on our behalf to equally distribute some of these games at night.

Yeah, I am pumped for the clash of the titans aka San Jose State @ Arkansas at 7:30. That Saturday has been circled on my calendar for months.

I'm sure Byrne is talking to the people he needs to talk to. At the end of the day there is only so much we can do.

If we end up at 11 against Ole Miss, then I'll be annoyed. But when you play teams like New Mexico St. and Southern Miss, I think you just get what you get.

Auburn has played a bunch of 11 games the past few years. Breakfast With the Barn is a running joke on Twitter because of it.

Of course, they get two in a row at night so maybe that trend is reversing.

I’m Ok with 11.


Bama game at 11

Auburn/A&M at 2:30

ND/UGA at 7.



That’s a good day of football for me right there

That's the worst game of the day, so it makes sense for the conference to put it in the time slot that goes against the best game of the day (ND-UGA).

Our game against Southern Miss is so much worse though. San Jose State and Arkansas are pretty equally matched. They are just both terrible.

Score wise I think this will be true. But it will still be higher rated because more eyeballs are always on ranked teams.

No one outside of Arkansas will be watching their game.

That's just how I imagine the tv people are thinking

I don't have any problem playing Southern Miss. They've had a winning season 4 straight years, are regional and we have a tradition of games with them.

The problem is Southern Miss should be our #3 or #4 OOC game, not #2.

Metro Birmingham is consistently the highest rated college football viewing area in the country. It shouldn't come as a surprise that we get shitty time slots, because Bama fans are going to tune in to watch games all day and all night saturday. Our passion for the sport is our own demise. People are always going to tune into bama from around the country. Imagine if this games looks like the citadel game from last year. It would be a ratings nightmare for CBS if we were competing in the same time slot.

Byrne's pissed he may not get to use his new lights this season.

Next round of TV negotiations is going to be interesting.

- The SEC will no doubt require CBS to bring more $$$ to the table
- ESPN will be looking for ways to reduce cost.
- SEC ADs who are starting to take it on the chin with attendance have to find a way to get more money while not selling completely out to TV execs.
