Title game
« on: January 04, 2023, 10:05:41 AM »
I guess that I really am not surprised to see that the title game will be played this Sunday at 2:00 Est, really!

No doubt the decision to watch a pro game or a game between two lower-level college schools will be easy for 99.99 percent of football fans!

The time and day of the game is very strange. They could play on a Friday night which might draw an audience, but Sunday with the pro games on is not good. It will not showcase FCS Football like it could. Anyone know who or what group makes the decision? It is on ABC which I don't think has any Pro Football any more.

I could care less.  Most of the country could care less. Now I do care about My Penguins.  But all this tells me is we have slim margin of error to compete in the top tier and have a shot in playoffs.  Basically it’s the Dakota’s and the rest of pack.  But hey we are in the SeC of FCS fun times!

Pretty much the point, most folks do not care and no effort is made to play at a time where some desperate football fan may watch because it is the only game on.

Hannon was just on the Rivers show, he also could not understand why the game would be on Sunday and not tomorrow with no other games. Oh well!

Why is he leaving?  Northwestern about to fire the coach by next year.  He has had a losing season the past couple of years i believe.

Yesterday would have made sense, but today for game day is baffling to say the least. Every bar in the US would have had the game on if it were a 1:00 start yesterday and avoiding conflict with yesterday's later NFL games. It would have exposed many to FCS and at least created the possibility of generating some interest in the game, as opposed to today where almost no one will view the game.

I watched the game along with Steeler/Browns.   SDSU looked unstoppable and to think most of their stars are back next year.    its the Dakotas and then the has beens  in our conference.
