“Georgia is a powerhouse right now…”

David Paschall has an article today that speculates on how often Georgia will appear on CBS’ 2008 broadcast schedule.

Short answer: it could be quite a lot, according to Mike Aresco, the network’s senior vice president of programming.

… Aresco said CBS likely will open its coverage schedule Sept. 13 with Georgia’s trip to South Carolina. The Bulldogs also could be on the network against Tennessee, LSU (Oct. 25), Florida (Nov. 1), Auburn (Nov. 15) and Georgia Tech (Nov. 29).

The Tennessee-Georgia game will be part of a 3:30 and 8 p.m. doubleheader with LSU-Florida, but it has not been determined which game gets which time slot. CBS has a noon and 3:30 doubleheader on Nov. 29 that likely will be the Alabama-Auburn and Georgia-Georgia Tech games.

Interestingly, ESPN has grabbed Alabama-Georgia as one of its priority picks, which I assume will make that a night game. I wonder if Mike Patrick will be inspired to let fly with another Britney reference.

    How does the Arizona State game work? ABC?

    Surely it will be televised, right?


  2. I took a look here to see what the marquee games would be on September 20.

    There are a few games of national interest, but it’s by no means an overloaded schedule:

    Florida at Tennessee
    LSU at Auburn
    Georgia at Arizona State
    Miami at Texas A&M
    Notre Dame at Michigan State
    Arizona at UCLA

    Southern Cal is off and the other big schools are playing lesser opponents.

    The odds look pretty good to me that ABC/ESPN grabs the ASU game.

    Britney? Britney who?……..


  4. the ABC game with the most inter regional appeal will be UGA vs. ASU. You’d have to think we’d be the 8:00 PM ABC slot.

    The only other game close would be Notre Dame at MSU. Sure, it’s ND…but it’s still just a regional match-up. Plus, MSU and ND stink.

    Miami at TAMU screams day game.

    Is she at the game? No! Is she a fan?


  6. Maybe we should make her an honorary captain this year. 😉
