    Commercial breaks are what lengthen the game. Sometimes the halftime break last 20-25 minutes. Pro halftimes seem twice as short as college.

    There was a pretty good article on Sportsnation about these rule changes. One thing it said about halftime length was halftime shows with the bands being part of the college game day experience versus NFL. Also, said Pitt coach Pat Narduzi said he was in favor of the clock rules so the game would be more like NFL, which would prep players for playing at next level. My point for this comment is, I’m against anything that makes the college game more like the NFL. I couldn’t even stay awake during the “exciting” Super Bowl, as I found it a boring game.

    I think for me personally(you may beg to differ) but if I was going to load up the family(or just me and the Mrs.), travel to a destination and spend the night in a hotel and get up the next morning and tailgate and spend hundreds of dollars, I'm after the experience. I'm not sitting in the stands wishing the game was over already(maybe a little in a blowout against East Texas St.) but you get my drift. I don't want to walk into the stadium, sit down and leave 2 hours later.

    Baseball has made a huge effort to speed up the game, and from a watching on TV experience I get it. It can be boring. I love the Braves but I rarely(playoffs only) just sit and watch the whole game on TV. I'm watching other things and checking in periodically.

    I can't remember watching UGA on TV and being bored. It's usually the quickest 3 hours of my life every week in the fall. My wife says the same thing about Jeopardy!
