re: Most Popular SEC Programs for TV Viewership - BHMKyle
[quote]As you can see, there must be some statistical anomaly that puts AU as close behind Bama as you report. Frankly, AU is not close to Alabama in interest.[/quote] Well obviously Bama is out front.... they've played as one of the teams in the 17 most watched SEC vs. SEC matchups since 2013. ...

re: Overrated CFB coaches - BHMKyle
[quote] The UCLA debacle was embarrassing and he should take heat for it.[/quote] The thing is, losing to bad teams is a very real part of Mike Leach's resume. Losing to a very bad UCLA team this year is no different that what happens most every year. Last season he lost to 5-7 USC which cost...

[quote] The number of viewers comprising the 3.6 rating in the Atlanta market would greatly outnumber that of the 7.4 rating in the Birmingham market if that’s the case.[/quote] Those ABC/ESPN numbers are somewhat skewed because it includes the ABC games which never feature SEC games. It causes ...

[quote]ther games that have outdrawn aggy-Lamar at 142,000 viewers: Florida vs. Tennessee-Martin (ESPNU, 364,000) Iowa State vs. Univ. of Northern Iowa (FS1, 493,000) Old Dominion vs. Va Tech (ESPNU, 201,000) South Dakota State vs. Minnesota (FS1, 392,000) [/quote] Which are all p...

re: Most Popular SEC Programs for TV Viewership - BHMKyle
This is just dumb on so many levels: 1. The opponent was Lamar 2. It was on ESPN U which many folks don't have access to 3. It was a blowout so no one other than the most die hard Aggie would watch until the end. ...

[quote]but still ahead of Auburn LSU, which is a major head scratcher to me.[/quote] Yeah I thought so too. 2013, 2014, and 2015 were all blowouts one way or the other and therefore were never really competitive. That might be part of the reason. However, Alabama vs. Tennessee is always a bl...

Also, Alabama vs. Tennessee being so far behind Bama's annual games against Auburn, LSU, and A&M shows how few people outside those two states actually view that game as anything special....

[quote]So LSU had greater than 25% of the most-watched games in all of the conference excluding games involving Alabama? Doesn't sound too bad to me[/quote] Not terrible... but that's fewer than Auburn, Georgia, and Texas A&M. [quote]My point was you provided an unreliable metric and based an ...

[quote]That is taking away our biggest money making game every year off of this. Just a thought[/quote] Just trying to get apples-to-apples. The SEC clears the deck for the CBS Primetime Game each year ensuring there's not any competition. All other SEC vs. SEC games have to be concluded by the...

[quote]Even when Alabama is down they got good ratings. Birmingham is the #1 viewership market in the entire country for CFB, often with 50% of tv sets tuned in to games.[/quote] Very true. I don't have access to all the market info, but I would love to see total viewership of all SEC games OU...

[quote]Well when you remove their most watched game every year (Alabama), that kind of moves the needle a bit[/quote] Not really. As you'll see in my most recent post in the thread, if you remove the Iron Bowl, Auburn has 7 of the next Top 15 most popular games that didn't involve Alabama..... L...

[quote]So this is why CBS chose Alabama-A&M over LSU-Florida.[/quote] I think had they known UF would beat Auburn, they probably would have chosen UF-LSU.... however, Bama and A&M is a safer bet two weeks out because quite frankly both are bigger ratings draws than either Florida or LSU....

re: Alabama vs LSU should be #1 vs #2. - BHMKyle
Alabama will not be in the Top 2 when the first Playoff Rankings are announced, unless several upsets occur. If LSU beats Florida and Auburn, they'll be #1 If Ohio State beats Wisconsin, they'll be #2 The best Bama can hope for is #3 unless one of those other two lose a game. The schedule ...
