    Saw this at 7:45 p.m. ... why would I want an "expanded" version for Mondays? I want it to run with the college football coverage, not the NFL.

    Shouldn't they rename it College Football Yesterday?

    What about the games on Monday?

    What AP has done is date newspapers more.
    "College Football Two Days Ago."
    Below-average plan.

    Awful fucking idea. Lot of papers rely on that for notes, today's stars-type packages, etc. I know I did when I had to put those together.

    Christ, AP. I know you're on the ball with becoming a nice, well-rounded, multimedia news-gathering organization, but the rest of us still have papers to put out every day. ::)

    That's atrocious.

    That Sunday for Monday CFB Report should be just about 100% useless since most papers have a staffer doing a Sunday wrap-up piece.

    the time frame for the change from CFB to NFL happens right about 11 a.m. Eastern on Sunday, when the NFL pregame shows start...
    Stupid move by Ap, but not a surprising one.

    I was saving space for it, because it's a good way to wrap up the national stuff, especially on a day when I have a shitty newshole.

    Glad we had such advance notice. ::)

    Terry Taylor said she would re-address the decision this week.

    I wouldn't necessarily have a problem with it.

    We don't have a Sunday paper. But it's just as useless to me because we don't have a Monday one, either.

    The notice ran in advance two days ago. At least on my wire.
