TV time-outs a disruption

Letter to the Editor | Tuesday, October 16, 2007

Notre Dame’s exclusive television contract with NBC is a testament to the strength and national following of the football program. While the University should continue the relationship with NBC, it needs to be restructured, specifically with regard to the excessive amount of time-outs that destroy momentum and quiet the stadium. During the Boston College game I attended, it was quite remarkable to hear the amount of boos whenever an NBC time-out was called. I am sure that Notre Dame and NBC can find a middle ground that includes fewer time-outs for less money.
