* After this weekend's results in the ACC & the Big East, it made sense to run with a six day pick. Several of the teams lost and left several of the games without a clear difference re: their pecking order in the television selection list.
* Don't know the exact reason why the Pac-12 selections came out on Sunday instead of Monday. Can only speculate that if anyone involved in the selections observes Rosh Hashanah, they would not have been available on Monday to participate and did them on Sunday instead.
* I expect more Big 12 selections for ABC & ESPN over the next few weeks. They'll probably have a game on 10/6. Assuming the WVU-Texas game remains a FOX telecast, FSN is listing two Big 12 telecast windows. The F/X window, per advance FOX RSN listings, show a C-USA telecast on F/X with Boise St.-Southern Miss likely moving over.
So Big 12 fans (particularly some WVU fans who don't like 12pm kickoffs), please take a deep breath. Please.
* ESPN did not specify where any of their games would air when it came to ESPN/ESPN2 selections. Consider the 12pm kickoffs independent of the rest of the games, but the as for the rest of them, consider them as the following groups:
- ABC Reverse Mirror (3:30pm), South Carolina-Kentucky (7pm), Oregon-Washington St. (10:30pm)
- ACC or Big East (6pm) & Ole Miss-Alabama (9:15pm)
* It does appear that if FOX is not doing a Pac-12 game in primetime, the Pac-12 Network will try to do a game starting at 6pm ET. I believe that when ABC or FOX is televising a Pac-12 game, they have some exclusivity in their window. I'm aware that it wasn't the case on 9/8 when Fresno St.-Oregon and Nebraska-UCLA aired concurrently, but when you have nine games to try to slot, sometimes you have to compromise
* 9/29 is the last week of F/X doubleheaders. Starting 10/6, there's only a single game at 12pm on the networks most weeks. Conversely, this is when FOX will also start with doubleheaders most weeks with 3pm and 7pm start times.
