I heart college football. It's the best thing going.
But what is this sport doing being played on a Wednesday night? The four-lettered, of course, is the real answer. Hypocritical athletic directors and university presidents are the other.
Currently watching Central Florida and UAB battle it out to the delight of the millions of gamblers who currently don't have NBA or NHL regular season action to bet.
There was a college football game on TV last night as well.
This has to stop, which means it won't. Too many dead presidents on the line that are currently lining the pockets of this conference, or that athletic department.
C-USA would probably allow Tuesday Morning Kickoff if it meant an extra $20.
But since we're going to play college football games on Tuesday night, Wednesday night, Thursday night, Friday night as well as Saturday, can we formally evict the "academics" argument to college football, and men's college basketball?
Academics matter to the coach who is trying to keep his players eligible, and to the students who individually make academics a priority.
No else cares, because as a game on Wednesday nights demonstrates, there is no financial incentive to care.
