    Why aren't there any good games on during the day anymore?

    This week there are a handful of good national games between top 25 teams. Why are all of them at night? ESPN is promoting all of the games on their networks and most of them are in the evening time slot. Why don't they have anything on at 2:30 anymore? It seems that you'd get more viewers by having them on at different times rather than splitting the viewers between three of your channels. It used to be that the best game got the best slot and the others moved to other time slots, not different channels.

    ABC finds it necessary to show a mediocre Penn State team every week on national TV.

    Yes. This is baffling.

    It's like that everywhere? I thought maybe it was just like that here since they're close by. That is baffling.

    Geez, ABC, pull your head out. No one cares about PSU for five years.

    ESPN and ABC need to get Penn State the hell off TV.

    Yep, I've had them on ABC or ESPN2. Dumb.

    Maybe PSU fans are embarrassed to go to the games and need to watch at home.

    any big 10 game is embarrassing at this point. they have had their hands full this non-conference season...its amazing that people believe any of them should be ranked. Wisconsin? give me a break...the bias is awful. just shows how out of touch many voters are...

    agreed about penn state...they have no business being on TV period! espn/abc is deplorable.
