    NFL lockout ??

    If the NFL locks out the players in 2011, will college football played on Sunday? With the Big 12 and Fox Sports together, will the Big 12 be the Prime time football played on Sunday?

    Thanks for your feedback.

    I doubt many teams/conferences would want to take a chance on it. What if the two sides reach a deal midseason and NFL comes back all of a sudden?

    NBC would have to replace Sunday Night Football (I'm assuming they still have the rights next year) so we'd probably get Notre Dame every Sunday evening!

    This is exactly right. No reason to discuss any further. Never.

    Then just move the games back to saturday. They dont pick which games are on what time anyway until like 2 weeks before

    But I doubt the league would come back mid season. how would it even work?

    If it would make the colleges more money...they will do it! No doubt about that.

    Why? It's happened before in the NFL and the NBA, you just play a shortened season. The NFL won't be locked out all year, there's going to be a lot of broke former millionaires out there. Just because those paychecks stop coming doesn't mean your mortgage or car payments stop.

    That is true. But an agreement won't occur on a Friday with games resumed two days later. If an agreement were to be made in the middle of the fall, teams would need at least 3 weeks to get ready as rosters won't even be filled until there is an agreement.

    It might/probably won't last into the season, but a lockout is a very likely scenario.

    The NFL may lock the players out, but I really doubt that they miss any games because of it. The owners and players are just too smart to screw that up. They will settle about 2 weeks after training camp is suppose to start.

    The NBA, I think they will lock out the players and will miss half of the season. But nobody watches the NBA until April anyway so no one will really notice.
