in week 2 why play ohio state and notre dame at the same time on that Saturday night? that’s 2 great games that should be on at different times

James on 7/16/2014 @ 3:51pm EDT Said:

man 3 amazing games in week two why do they all have to be at the same time… lol

Appleton Rocks on 7/16/2014 @ 3:59pm EDT Said:

I would pay to avoid watching either Notre Dame or The Ohio State Felons unless they were playing Wisconsin.

c tooley on 7/16/2014 @ 4:22pm EDT Said:

It would seem to me that all three of those games are pretty great games.

Scott Halasz on 7/16/2014 @ 4:25pm EDT Said:

That’s ESPN/ABC’s call and they wanted to go head-to-head with ND-Michigan. Conference had little, if any, to do with it.

Doug on 7/16/2014 @ 5:37pm EDT Said:

ah, you mean ohio state and Michigan?🙂

Charles Everett on 7/16/2014 @ 5:52pm EDT Said:

Michigan-ND is a glamour match-up and NBC wants as many people watching as possible.

Oregon promised MSU that they wouldn’t play a night game on the West Coast. That’s one reason why VT-tOSU is a night game.

Tim on 7/16/2014 @ 6:46pm EDT Said:

Dale, no one cares about Ohio State. Just be glad that you got a night game and stop complaining.

AK on 7/16/2014 @ 7:13pm EDT Said:

how about the State vs. Oregon game on at 6pm the same day? 2 good football games will be unwatched.

Gurndogg on 7/17/2014 @ 1:36pm EDT Said:

Yeah sure Tim no one cares about OSU then why did you feel like you HAD TO mention it hmm sounds like you are jealous. I want to watch the whole MSU-Oreg. game as I feel MSU is a better team but on the road this early in the season plays against them but I hope they win for them, BIG & for the OSU-MSU game. As an OSU fan I want to be able to watch both games all the way through.
