Suh or McCoy should have won. I think you're forgetting how bad the Pac-10 (and Notre Dame) was in 2009. Oregon was the only team that finished in Top 20. Gerhart is much closer to what you said about Andre Williams.

I think your anger is misguided. Every "play" Mike Brey called down the stretch ended with Grant hucking up a bad shot with a few seconds on the shot clock. Everyone on Kentucky knew Grant wasn't passing and that was the problem...not ESPN.

This literally hurt my eyes to read. Way too many hyperlinks. You don't need to cite every fact with a link.

Bad list. The undefeated Patriots is #1 by a mile. It completely re-calibrated how big a Super Bowl could be. I mean, it changed the sports. How is it #5?

And #2 by a mile is the 85 Bears, which produced a viewership rating that would last for 20+ years.

It's pretty easy to see what games produced a spike by doing a simple Google search:

@Matt_Zemek 3 of those 4 games you mentioned (Oak/Min excepted) all had SIGNIFICANT drops in viewership. It's like you're going out of your way to be wrong:

Have you ever watched SNL? You make it sound like edge is what made it special. What made it special was getting people to laugh. It's not funny anymore. That's the problem. Edgy or not, who cares? Edgy does not equal funny.

"This is a clear situation in that Marshall controls its fate more than anyone else at this point."

I don't know what you guys are talking about, but Marshall is not getting that bid.

"I don't watch Gameday."

Did everyone have to say that to maintain their street cred or something?

Damn dude, just tell me what to watch. Sooooo many unnecessary words.

The Pac-12 is in its own worst enemy here. The ratings for the late-night games have been huge because there's no competition. Ridiculous that they're complaining about 730pm local starts - give me a break. They're the only conference that complains like this and they need the exposure the most. I also don't get their aversion to Fox Sports 1 - it would be in their best long-term interest to help beef up that network. Instead, they whine & complain and keep a top 15 matchup like Stanford/UCLA from the channel.

I wrote about this in October. If the Pac-12 wants anyone to blame for the East Coast bias, it should be in the mirror:

Have you ever interviewed for a job?

I got a new job in September. I had been interviewing since July. When anyone at my current job asked if I was thinking about leaving, I would say, "Nope."

What he did is no different than what everyone else in the world does.

How are they first?? Aren't they just doing what everyone else started to do the past couple of years??

If anything, NOT being opened made Macy's stand out and that was something to run on.

Those few hours on Thanksgiving are not (and should not) define a quarter for a company. If it does, then Macy's has been doing it all wrong anyway. 

You need to dominate, period. Not dominate a few hours on a Holiday night that other companies have already staked out. Focus on what you do well and own that.
