To save me the keystrokes, the following is the question I posed to Stewart Mandel for College Football Mailbag: Stewart: You wrote that the College Football Playoff format is trying to make Dec. 31 as significant a bowl game day of New Year's Day. This year, the Peach, Fiesta and Orange Bowls are all on Wed. Dec. 31st. Next year the 2 semi-final games will be on Thur. Dec. 31, 2015. These are weekdays/workdays. What time are these games airing and how are people supposed to watch them between work and New Year's Eve revelry? Seems like a big mistake if they want TV ratings. ---I'm sure the Dec. 31 bowls will be good match-ups. How can I watch these games on a weekday? What about people out partying for New Year's Eve? Seems like a bad time slot for these marquee games.
