Default Re: Greatest idea ever for college football fans

They would get more TV money, fans would get more football, and ESPN would get ratings. As a fan, I could start paying attention to Wofford, Presbyterian, and the other schools in the state. Yeah, they wouldn't get the payday from when they play the big schools, but the TV revenue (along with more butts in the seats and more product sold) would more than make up for it. More tailgating, less expensive ticket, and games for an extra 4 months. They could even do some Sunday games after February to spread out the TV ratings. I think its a great idea.
The last time I checked, those other schools play basketball during that time. Nobody would care about watching lower level football teams. Do you think their fans want to watch football outside in the middle of the winter.
