What do I always say? What do I always say about football games generating huge ratings? It’s a sign that America is winning again.
College football TV ratings are up 19%. At the same time, the NBA is in a complete nosedive.

It’s also wild that this game put up such huge numbers, considering neither team is really considered a contender at all.
It goes to show how desperate people are for football and to see stadiums packed again. The numbers are booming!

If a week two game between Washington and the Giants is blowing away expectations, I think it’s safe to say we’re in for a monster year of ratings. That makes me very happy!
