This is not a vent board or any other kind of therapy. Before you hit the POST button, ask yourself if your contribution will add to the level of discussion going on.
Important notes on articles:
- Please do not copy entire articles into your post; rather, provide links to them.. We are now links-only for ALL Internet publications. If only a small portion of the article pertains to your post, Fair Use allows you to copy those one or two paragraphs, provided you cite the author's name and the publication for which he writes. Otherwise, put a link in the HTTP Link box.
- Even if you're copying a reference to an article, provide a link to the page from which the article came. We're trying to cut down on duplicate topics, and the posting process will check the link to your article to see if it's already being discussed on this board. At the very least, you'll save yourself some grief on the boards.
- If your first reaction after reading the article you're going to share is the author is uninformed / stupid / a jerk / all of the above, it's not worth sharing with anyone. Not every article needs to be discussed. The more the hair-pulling articles are discussed (e.g. ESPN Page 2), the more the authors will write hair-pulling articles.

The more informative information from the Matt S. site is the kickoff times. To some end, channels do dictate that. ESPN staggers their games on Saturday nights between their litany of networks. Fox does as well. I imagine NBC will do the same with Peacock and the Big Ten.
The topic probably underscores why ND has been willing to be below market on TV. ND and NBC obviously collaborate on start times to some extent and announce them well in advance. A schedule where late season games start a bit earlier and everyone can plan travel in accordance with set kickoffs is very conducive to fan base that disproportionately travels to games. A six day hold on an ND home game would be very poorly received. If ND went out to the highest bidder in Bristol, that'd be the trade off.
