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.
