UM vs. OSU only drew a 13.4

    Hey dipshit, I don't give a rat's ass about how many people watched the game. The fact that you do is just further proof that you are having time making it to five green-jersey whack-offs a day, so you need to find another way to spend some time. Go blow it, and your pompous attitude about life, out your ass.

    Only when compared with ratings for non-sports events.

    Also, consider that there were a full slate of other games nationwide, and all of those fans don't get counted for watching the satellite hookup back at the tailgate party.

    Anyone who believes a 13.4 rating for anything other than the Super Bowl is low, is clearly a moron. It outdrew EVERY World Series game this year, and they were all in prime time and not up against any sports competition.

    13.4 is HUGE number for a regular-season college football game, especially one played in the afternoon.

    Jeez, what a troll. Quotes a compliment for someone else as meant for him.

    Jimmy, you are a complete douche. Please piss off.

    The point that the poster made is that it was not the most watched game since 1993.

    I've been one who peruses this board from time to time, but felt the need to go through the motions on this one to be able to post. More time than not, this appears like a fanboy board. Many of you argue without facts. This isn't the only case, but still speaks very loud to the point.

    Many of you shame the career that my grandfather Red had so much love for.

    Your excellent points are putting you in line for All-Rookie team honors.

    As for Jimmy ... well ... the term "fanboy assclown" leaps to mind.

    I could be wrong, but I don't even think the Big House has permanent lights. I was told by someone in our department who covered a couple games up there that they bring in temporary lights for 3:30 games, since it gets dark later in the fall.

    For years and year, the OSU-Michigan game was ALWAYS at noon, then finally moved to 1 p.m. a few years ago. They got dragged, kicking and screaming, into the 3:30 slot this year. Eventually, I guess they'll probably go primetime with it, but I'm not going to lie: It looked pretty damn weird seeing OSU and Michigan playing against each other under artificial light. I don't know how else to put it... It just looked... wrong.

    Only lights at UM is a small bank along the pressbox.. enough to see what's going on, but far from enough to light the field... will be interesting to see what happens withthis at Michigan Stadium next year...
