The fun idea that dies before it reaches Cowboys Stadium

Dal_g_dalstadum_576Wasn't exactly sure how this was ever going to work but the controlled chaos that was going to be four college basketball games played at the same time at Cowboys Stadium has died.

According to this report by the Detroit News, the Michigan State director of athletics said the plans have been scrapped.

Here is a real shocker - TV said they didn't like it.

The plan was to have four games to begin about 15 minutes apart on the Cowboys Stadium floor to start off the 2013-'14 season. The problem was it going to require four different networks to televise the games, and there apparently was no way.

This should not stop Cowboys Stadium from trying to do something grand for college basketball at the beginning of next year; it will be the site of the 2014 Final Four. Maybe two games at the same time featuring the four of the best teams in the country.

Maybe they should re-pitch the four games with green screen barriers between the four courts that sponsorship logos and television filler could be placed on.

The $$$ potential could make the networks work it out.

How novel. Take in some basketball games while shopping for "teddies". I'm stoked!
