One SEC coach said all these night kickoffs - thanks in large part to the new ESPN contract - are taking a toll on staffs.
Seven of South Carolina's first eight games will start after 7 p.m. Only last week's Kentucky game was a day kickoff.
Players and fans enjoy night games. But coaches get back in the middle of the night after road games - and they're back in the office Sunday morning setting up the oncoming week.
Steve Spurrier's not too broken up over the fact the Gamecocks will meet No. 2 Alabama at 7:45 p.m. Saturday. He knows South Carolina's record in 3:30 p.m. kickoffs isn't all that great.
Never miss a local story.
But that probably has a lot to do with the competition in those CBS games. Competition like, say, Alabama? Sometimes it just doesn't matter when you play.
With a 300-yard day and four TDs, Georgia's secondary turned him into Peyton Manning. Eh, at least Heath Shuler.
The kid came out of nowhere to catch ... well, everything. He had five receptions in five games - and then seven against Kentucky. Curious to see if he can duplicate that against other SEC competition.
He plays his tail off, even when coming back from a nasty concussion. You have to respect that, don't you?
You look on the field and see talent, but it continues to fall flat in big games. Bulldogs fans still haven't forgotten about Georgia Tech last year.
Oh, no. The Commodores appear to be taking a big step backward. Losing to Army? Never good.
Wasn't totally sold on him going into season, and now seeing the reason why. Snead doesn't have time to read defenses. He misses receiver Mike Wallace, now a Steeler.
By the numbers:
45: How many games did you think it would take Tennessee to score that many points? Evidently all the Vols needed was one against Georgia.
19: Vandy has scored that many points, combined, in its first three SEC games. Will Georgia be the cure for the Commodores' ills, too?
947: How many more yards Alabama has rushed for than its opponents in six games.
He said it:
"I told him, 'He's a better coordinator now than he was three years ago.' He said, 'You're right.'"
