  1. Only three games all season on NBC? Not quite what I was expecting from the “big contract” but I guess that is a bunch of NBC Sports games.

  2. Too many Sunday games !

  3. Anyone notice how INSANE this schedule is? A couple of 2 week breaks and then a bunch of games 3-4 days apart at the end of the season? Are they going to fit the friendlie into those breaks?
