Sunday college football games
 
On the way home today, they were talking about how on the radio that the SECN will experiment with Sunday night games to compete with nfl games. Thoughts on this?

Don't think they will compete.

Especially if against larger markets.

Now it was competing against teams like Tampa Bay, Carolina or Jacksonville (one of their Sunday night games). Yea they could compete.

^Yeah. I think the college games would get crushed, because I don't remember the NFL featuring a whole lot of bad match-ups on Sunday night. The Sunday night game typically features teams (or at least one, anyway) that a whole lot of people want to see.

On the one hand I like it in case the Sunday NFL game is weak. On the other hand, I would hate to be in a situation where the Gamecocks and Saints were playing at the same time.

The Sunday games are flexed too.

Unlike Monday night where the game is set in stone, the Sunday night game can change if it's a bad matchup. (Which the league has done in the past)

Horrible idea! Sunday night is the game of the week for the NFL. I really hope they aren't that stupid.

Horrible idea. I could see Friday night games coming way before Sunday night games.

Why the hell would anyone even think it's necessary to compete against the NFL?

If a premiere SEC matchup were featured on a Sunday night it would destroy a mid-tier NFL game.

I don't like this idea. I don't care if it could do better or not against the NFL game, I just don't see how doing this makes sense. What do they gain from this move?

Yet now you'll compete against the NFL. Personally, I just hate late night Sunday games since I have to get up at 5am for work.

its all about which markets you're trying to reach...

Example...NY Giants v. Minnesota Vikings was NEVER going to be a college market, regardless of when the game is played...

Difficult to determine without actually going ahead with it, but CBS said they averaged 18MM viewers for it's games, while NBC averaged 21.7MM viewers for it's games. (NFL) That's average.

IN 2013, CBS 3 top SEC games had 11.9, 13.7, 13.8 MM viewers. That's top 3.

Personally, I think that folks in the west, Midwest and NE will watch a mid level NFL game before a top level SEC game, but that is nothing more than speculation on my part.

Seems we continue to make the term "Student Athlete" more and more of a joke with each passing year, though.

my point was- i'm not convinced a majority of those viewers of a northern NFL matchup would watch an SEC matchup regardless

so, that's what I meant was it being all about markets...if you're not competing for the same market and all.

Don't see it happening. ESPN is dependent on staying in the NFL 's good graces. It was announced today that ESPN will start televising a wild card playoff game.

Ok. I wasn't replying to your post which is why I quoted someone else and replied to them about their point.
