Who Schedules?

Monday Musings on This ‘N That

Summer, Spring, Fall, Winter. Which is your favorite season of the year?

Let’s talk a bit about the seasons. Here in the South we just about skipped any spring weather and just jumped into hot, hot summer. There was hardly any nice spring days to sit outside. It just turned hot.

Now it looks we’ve jumped into winter without a fall to watch the beautiful colors of the leaves. We had a 30 degree drop from one day at 80+ degrees to the next day at 50+ degrees.

I’ll  never understand who schedules college football games. We start our football season in August. The first few games are in mid-day when it’s 85-90 degrees. Then when the cool weather comes, the games are at night and that’s a chilly three hours to sit watching a game. But then it’s been suggested the reason for the football  games' starting times is for following the TV scheduling. Schools will play when they get the chance to be on TV where they will receive more money, whenever the time. So I guess it is true that you can “follow the money” and find most answers to your questions.

I  know, I know, I’m as big a football fan as anyone. But, really. Do they think of the fans or the money when scheduling game times? It’s just another thing I can’t do anything about. They never ask me when making all these decisions. Wonder why?
