While I agree that's a problem, I don't think that's why viewership is down


It's been a very odd year. All sports are down, and down big. The Super Bowl hadn't even sold all their ads as of a couple days ago. It's different without fans all season long, and people have other concerns occupying their thoughts. And I certainly don't think the ratings would've been better with Cincy or some other program in. Not sure you can get a bigger following, and thus viewership, than the 4 schools they happened to have this year.

The good news is I don't think it's a systemic issue with CFB or any sport. They may get some drop off from letting politics infiltrate so much, but when we get more back to "normal", I'm pretty sure their ratings will too. People still love and will turn to CFB and other sports.

IMHO of course.
