    I hate ABC

    For some reason they think that I would rather watch Clemson play Florida State than PSU and Iowa. I hate living in ACC country where they assume people care about stupid worthless ACC football. NOBODY CARES ABOUT THE ACC.

    I can't believe this crap. It happens all the time. I guess I'll have to go to a bar or something.

    I haven't checked, but I'm pretty sure that I will get to see Penn State here in the Wilkes-Barre area.

    I'd guess it is available streaming on the internet.

    I beg to differ, I'm totally excited about this game. Sure FSU is going to get penalties and fumble their way to a loss, but it'll be fun to watch! It's supposed to be a sellout crowd at Doak Campbell (it was last year against Clemson, anyway). I'm glad it won't be on ppv!

    One of FSU's defensive backs is interviewing for a Rhodes Scholarship the day of the game.

    Joe Pa is doing just fine up there in that booth. This could be the year that lets him go out on top - which is what I think he's been hoping for.

    Link is dead. I'll take you guys at your word, but this would fly in the face of the longstanding SEC and Big 12 traditions of academic underachievement in athletics.

    Good story. Hopefully he'll be a role model for a lot of athlete-students, who so often seem to put "ballin'" ahead of everything else in life.

    It gets even better. They're showing the Clemson-FSU game simultaneously on both ABC and ESPN. The point of this would be... what exactly? Instead of showing me Penn State, they're gonna show me Clemson and Florida State twice. Awesome.

    As an Iowa fan, can any of you local PSU people please tell me who won? Cringing in advance; I know there is no way that lowly little Iowa can stand up to you. Good luck with the remainder of your undefeated season; be glad you don't have to play in some meanigless bowl just because some upstart got you with a suckerpunch.

    Again, I find myself in agreement with botto.

    As for the OP, ABC puts on the games that put the most revenue in their coffers. THEY certainly don't give a rat's behind about college football.

    Don't be coy: who won??? Are you suggesting that little Iowa won? Oh my, it must be so painful to keep talking about it. Are you sure PSU lost? Perhaps you should go back and watch the ending again and again to be sure you saw it correctly. I know it will hurt, but that really is the only way to be sure. And maybe ESPN made a mistake on their ticker, so be sure to verify it on CBS and Rivals and other places. Watch that last 3 seconds repeatedly. Carefully. Let it sink into your consciousness. I know I will!!!!! Go Hawks!
