Do you think this is an indication that the SEC will be going to 9 game schedule in 2014?

True, but it was also the "second highest of program in the history in cable television." It is funny how all these media outlets are using the fact that it had worse ratings than last year's game as a push for a playoff. As I believe you have pointed out, even with a playoff it is very likely we would have ended up with the same game (LSU beats Stanford; Bama beats OSU; LSU v. Bama in NCG). What's that old saying, the grass is always greener....

From http://www.espnmediazone3.com/us/2012/01/10/bcs-national-championship-cable%E2%80%99s-second-biggest-audience-of-all-time/ :

ESPN’s telecast of the Allstate Bowl Championship Series (BCS) National Championship – Alabama’s 21-0 shutout of LSU -- posted a 16.2 fast national household coverage rating, according to Nielsen, representing an average of 16,072,000 households, the second highest of any program in the history in cable television (records go back to 1987). The average of 24,214,000 viewers (P2+) was also second best in cable. It also is ESPN’s second-highest rating of all time. The only telecast in cable television history with a larger audience was last year’s BCS Championship on ESPN (17,718,000 homes and 27,316,000 people, based on a 17.8 rating), a 22-19 Auburn victory over Oregon decided by a field goal as time expired.

Do you think the late date of the Cotton Bowl is beneficial (exposure wise) for Arkansas, or has everyone's attention turned to the National Championship game?
