Thread: Just found ratings for our game against App. St.

  1. Default Re: Just found ratings for our game against App. St.

    On a side note, someone brought up Georgia Southern and ODU playing in front of over 1 million in the playoffs a couple years ago. Couple important notes there:

    1. That game was on ESPN, which is in like 3 times the number of homes that ESPNU is.

    2. That game was on a Saturday, when 95 percent of the TV Watching is sports related

    3. That game was played at a name when no other football games were on TV. Its right before the bowls start in FBS, and people are starved for football. At some point, they'll watch anything. Interestingly enough, the FCS title game actually draws fewer viewers many times than regular playoff games because it is played opposite both the NFL Playoffs and a major FBS Bowl game. It was a poor decision truthfully to move the title game to January for FCS television wise.

    When GS & (whoever) plays a televised football game, do the teams get any money? Does the conference get any money? How is this money allocated? Is the payback just the exposure? If someone has some knowledge in this area, I would appreciate them sharing what they know.

    ESPN Pays the Sun Belt for the right to broadcast these games. Sun Belt splits that amount evenly between the 11 member schools. Its done on a per year basis, and not a per game basis.
