Florida State coach not interested in Sunday games

Florida State coach Jimbo Fisher, who grew up only a few miles from PFT headquarters, was asked today about the prospect of playing college games on Sunday, if the work stoppage results in a vacancy on the day that NFL games routinely are played.

Per JoeBucsFan.com, Fisher said the prospect of playing on Saturdays is “scary,” primarily because players typically use Sundays to recover from Saturday games.

“Not sure if you have seen what these guys go through after a game, but they need a day off,” Fisher said.

He’s got a good point, but that hasn’t stopped the NCAA from scheduling games on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays.  College football is more about money than academic expedience, and there would be plenty of money to be earned by playing Saturday games on Sunday, if Sunday becomes available.

    Jimbo needs a lesson in economics. If the NFL is idle this fall, college games will move in. ESPN isn’t going to ignore that void.

    Come on. As if anyone on the team is attending classes.

    Well, Jimbo, in professional football they take Mondays off. What? You are still under the delusion the NCAA isn’t professional football? Yeah. Right.

    Sundays were made for the UFL and/or Arena Football.
