The national audience ratings would have been off the charts (if we beat Auburn) had this been a night game. But, playing in the afternoon I think helps LSU!

Potentially the Number 1 and Number 2 teams are playing and you are going to put that at 2:30? Who's in charge of that?

As a hard core LSU fan, I will not be attending, nor watching or supporting day games any longer. This is the straw that broke the camels back. Whomever is responsible for this should be terminated immediately.

CBS contract gives them first choice of SEC games to air in their 2:30 slot. Contract was changed in 2011 to allow CBS to pick 1 game per season for prime time. They had been using it on LSU-Bama but decided to use it on Notre Dame-Georgia earlier this year. Brass at CBS probably didn't expect LSU to be as good as they are and Bama had dominated the series lately.

Tiger Prawn, you are actually not correct. CBS had been doing one night game for years prior to 2011, that year they had an exception to do a 2nd. They had already did Alabama at Florida earlier that year, which is why they needed the permission.

Tua's ankle was on schedule to be healed by 6pm....

A loss without Tua assures BAMA a spot in the playoffs.

Tua needs more time to recover. Burrow will probably get sacked once in the Auburn game and they will throw a flag on Burrow for targeting the defensive lineman so that Burrow has to sit out the first half of the Bama game.

You say this in jest, but I’ve been seriously wondering who from LSU will get a bogus targeting call and ejection in the second half of the Auburn game. Lol

CBS is not able to move this game to 7pm unless ESPN agrees (and CBS pays ESPN for the priviledge). Guess the price was too high. Could still change after we beat Auburn, is my guess.
