Fickell says NO to Michigan State.
Add Sparty to the growing list of Fickell “ thanks but no thanks”,
Baylor, Florida State, Mississippi State, Arkansas , and before them was it was West Virginia, Louisville, and Maryland a year ago.
Guess he likes Cincinnati.

I’m pretty sure Josh is wound way too tightly.

I assume that is a rhetorical question?

In any case, since the answer was yes, the reason for the down turn in ratings on NY6 games is simply because they were "not" all on New Year's Day?  And everyone still seems to be learning that lesson?
“Everyone has figured it out” . The problem is no one has away to solve it.
 Not as long as the Pac12, the BIG, and the Rose Bowl remain in contract along with the SEC and the Sugar Bowl.

LSU’s national championship game victory against Clemson drew nearly 26 million viewers to ESPN, up slightly from last year’s final.

ESPN said Tuesday that viewership for the three-game College Football Playoff increased 4% from last season, when Clemson beat Alabama in the championship.

The network’s championship game megacast, which includes ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU and ESPNews, drew 25.6 million viewers. Last year’s megacast had 25.3 million viewers. The ESPN-only audience was also up over last year, from 24.3 million to 25 million.

Joe Burrow, the Heisman Trophy winner, led No. 1 LSU to a 42-25 victory Monday night in New Orleans. The game was 28-25 in the third quarter before LSU surged and put away the title early in the fourth quarter.

Overall, the television audience for New Year’s Six games were down 4% over last year for ESPN

 LSU’s passing game coordinator Joe Brady has told people today that he is planning to return to the NFL and the Carolina Panthers, per league sources.
Enjoy the replays of 2019, LSU without Burrow and Brady, may not be the same again.

The CFP has a new Champion, but the format is not changing anytime soon, if ever.
Bill Hancock the front man for the old BCS and now the CFP was reappointed yesterday reaffirming his support of the college Predidents and the CFP Committee and, moreover, their desire not to change the four team format. With still six years left on the CFP contract with ESPN  all stakeholders seem contented not to change a system that keeps producing undisputed champions.

And Beltran will skate.

Why wouldn't he?
Beltran can forget the Hall of Fame.

What time is the game tonight?  I like Ed O and I hope they can change the narrative of the past several years by dialing one up.  I might turn it on later and watch some of it.  But I'm not going to make a night of it.    My daughter has dance until 6:45 PST and I'm going to work until I need to pick her up.  College ball has lost some of its luster to me with the transfer portal and kids not playing in bowls etc.  This is why I stopped watching the NFL 15 or so years ago.
I suspect a USC revival of fortunes would get you excited again. 😀
As to your earlier complaint about the lack of civility on message boards. I am moving on to a Big Ten Board where I will be the moderator. The platform is solid and is backed down  by strict anti/flaming guidelines.
Fight On!

The thing is that WRs push off all the time and it is seldom called. It would mess up their offense is everything mantra. Got to keep the masses showing up at the gates and the living rooms and bars. Money talks and defense walks. Don't touch that QB, don't touch that WR. Don't hit anyone.

Bitch game now of preening dickweeds.
I think the whole booth review of interference is a stupid rule. Why not holding? Because a playoff game did not turn on a blown holding call? You can't change last year's result with this year's rule.

Why some plays are unchallengeable is beyond me.
1. Because the Minnesota TD, by rule, was ruled a TD by the replay booth. There was nothing left to challenge.

As for the OT rules in the NFL. 2. Winning a game on a first possession field goal has proven to be universally hated by football players and fans.

1. Missing the point. Care to try again? Why are some things not challengeable?
Because the League Rules Committee determines what plays are reviewable.
2. Missing the point even more widely. I agree. My complaint is that winning on the first possession at all is inherently unfair.
Again the Rules Committee set the parameters for OT.
