UT-UCLA thread on big east board
http://csnbbs.com/showthread.php?tid=606476

My oh my, some people have a warped sense of reality. This is December in a football crazy state where BBall doesn't cross our radar until after the Super Bowl is played.

I would do it but I know it's a lost cause but some one needs to educate BE members on TV ratings in the city of Houston.05-mafia03-banghead

I would post the ratings again but why bother. Certain fans will see what they want to see to make themselves feel better about their place in college athletics.

All that established, why exactly schedule a big non-conference matchup in a dome when it's predictable that no one shows up? Either have it on campus, or figure out how to have it in February.

And we do have a point (I assume, I haven't read that thread--it's not about my white-hot rage at my shortsighted leadership) about the long-term prospects of the new Big East schools in college basketball, when they are located firmly in college football country.

I thought Football season was over until the 15th? Texas isn't playing a bowl game until when? All they could drum up was 2799 in Houston? I guess Texas was too busy stressing about Johnny Football Heisman.

Serious question here.

Since I don't know where/how you get this info (yes I trust what you post is legit not going there) would it be possible to get the ratings for the highest rated program on those channels for the year and or same time frame?

That would be a more accurate comparison to the point that some people are trying to make (about the limited exposure) on certain networks. Just making up an example but let’s say UH drew a .8 and the highest program of the year and or time frame is 1.0. It shows how crappy the carriage is versus saying one or more schools just suck and can't draw flies.

Just a thought.

For a BBall game in Dec in football crazy Texas. In case you hadn't notice, Texas still has HS football playoff games. Some people will grasp at straws. Oh well

So then why schedule it for that date? That is embarrassing no matter how one tries to frame it.

TV ratings come from the Houston Chronicle and they have been posted numerous times.

I'm not a Texas fan and I have no idea why they did it but I find it laughable. It's grasping at straws. Like I told Cal, if you care about BBall in Nov & Dec, move to the NE or Midwest where they actually care about that sport.

I know that much but it would be interesting to see a complete breakdown of each networks programming. Not just what the chronicle reports.

Like say (well when it was still on Fox....) the Dan Patrick show drew X, UT v whomever Y, etc. etc.

That would bet a better representation of the point those people are trying to make.
