We have 2 @ 8 and 1 @ 6 at the end of October. The rest are TBD so I would assume 12 or 3:30 fitting in the TV schedule. Lights cost like $80k/game but TV networks pay for them so... Not like it is big money anyway.

You were arguing fan intensity as well. The hostility and hatred between Bama and Auburn fans is unmatched.

Can you just imagine the outcry if they tried to claim that white people were in ANY way better than black people??? People would be fired.
The Game stayed with an injured cyclist on the side of the road until an ambulance came.

Are you really trying to determine the intensity of a rivalry based on how stupid the fans are?


btw Kolder the pub near my house recently picked up Abita turbodog, it was pretty decent.

I don't doubt it. This is one of those things that I have been searching for for months. Haven't really seen a bad review of it yet.

THEY ARE PLAYING A ****ING FCS TEAM NO ONE CARES.

Also, I'm sure they're in Knoxville.

It may be a demonstration of stupidity, but it's more a demonstration of hatred and the extent they are willing to go to hurt the other school.

Nope. It's all about security concerns, weather, and money. There is no official ban of night games by the Big Ten after Nov. But it's a common myth.

I agree. But make up your mind already. You guys were using death threats to prove yours was. So which is it?

They're just going to change the argument to suit their case as needed.

But I think you and Kellster really nailed it when you discussed that fact that in the South, college football is EVERYTHING. We have some of the top rated sports talk shows in the nation in Birmingham and they talk college football year round. We don't have an NFL, MLB, or NBA team. In this area, college football has 4 seasons. And we talk football during all of them. In the fall we talk regular season. In the winter we talk championships, bowls and recruiting. In the spring we talk about spring practice and scrimmages. And we talk about football in the summer like it's preseason.

The first game of the season, Vandy/S.Car drew the largest TV rating in the nation in Birmingham AL. IIRC, it got a 54 rating and a 76 share. That means that 54% of ALL TVs and 76% of TVs that were TURNED ON in the Birmingham metro area were tuned to that game. That's serious passion for college football.

54% and 76% of the SAMPLE of people that live in Birmingham, yes?

I doubt that many of the 5,000 households are in the Birmingham metro area, and those aren't the kind of results you can extrapolate onto a population.
