I get that ‘Bama is the elephant in the room right now – see what I did there? – but does anybody else find CBS’ broadcast choice for October 13 a little strange? I mean, unless Uncle Verne has some sort of lengthy and riveting travelogue about Columbia up his sleeve to entertain us, it’s hard to see how that game is more compelling than South Carolina – LSU, particularly if both of those teams win this week.
Not that I’m complaining. I’d much prefer to have the Tigers playing host in a night game. But I am puzzled by the pick.
