It’s the luck of the draw, right? It’s how the computer spit out the schedule?
Just pure dumb luck that the Alabama at LSU college football game is now scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 14? The same weekend as the Masters.
No way the executives at a certain TV network patched in on that SEC conference call, just to suggest that, “Hey, Nov. 14 sure looks like a good day for a certain matchup?”
But we’re not conspiracy theorists over here. We’re just connecting the dots.
The SEC released its revised 10-game, conference-only college football schedule Monday and most of the conspiracy theories being bandied about on social media are about who Alabama doesn’t have to play, who LSU doesn’t have to play or who Missouri does have to play.
But take a moment and imagine that CBS double-header: Third round of the Masters, immediately followed by one of the premier college football games of the year. There’s already plenty of chatter on the message boards about the two-fer. The football game would have to be at night, but we hear that Tiger Stadium looks pretty good for night games.
Here’s guessing that ‘Bama diehard Justin Thomas will be the first one to find a TV that night, too.
We should take a half step back because there’s no guarantee there will be any college football this fall in the SEC – or Big 12 or ACC or anywhere else for that matter. The COVID pandemic has already led the Big Ten and Pac 12 as well as a few other leagues to call off football altogether in 2020. It may come to it that the other conferences follow suit.
But for now, it’s easy to imagine what a day that would be. Is it too early to start making the popcorn?
