→ Why are the playoff semifinals on New Year’s Eve again?

This is confusing to everyone because New Year’s Day is a great time for a couple big games and New Year’s Eve is a horrible one – at least if you are one of the many people who A) have to work, or B) have other plans that night. In other words, tens of millions of you.

So why is this happening? Why is college football staging its semifinals at a time that everyone predicts will cause fewer people to watch?

Here’s the honest answer: the people who run college football don’t care about you. At all. Like, not one single bit.

Dan Wetzel does an excellent job pointing out how stupid of a decision this is. Even as a die-hard college football fan, I wish the games were on another day.
