    I’m seeing a lot of excuses in this article. While Auburn and Oklahoma was more exciting to watch it comes down to Auburn not really being a big name to draw those numbers in. Yes, the NBA finals were on but that’s a pretty big difference in viewers. And the WCWS is always up against hockey.

    Last year featured defending national champs against powerhouse Michigan who wanted to knock the ‘King’ off it’s throne – it had a better narrative, imo.
