Interesting note in Michael Hiestand's media column in USA Today: ESPN is considering broadcasting a Sunday night college football game this year.
ESPN senior vice president David Berson says the network might end up with six Sunday prime-time college games this fall. And while "we're not comfortable saying now that we can put on a marquee college game every Sunday night, maybe we can get there."
Some might disagreea, but we think this is fantastic. This is just one more step closer to making it official that no football player will ever go to class. It also makes it more likely that someday, a scheduling snafu will cause a team to play on Sunday night and then again on Wednesday afternoon or something. (We imagine one of the Idaho teams.) This will lead to some confusing tailgates, we'd bet.
