After watching numerous BC games last year on ESPN3.com, I've began to wonder whether ESPN3.com is a good thing for college football. So let's look at the advantages and disadvantages of the internet sensation ESPN3.com.
If you asked me if ESPN3.com is good for college sports like basketball and baseball because of the opportunity to watch your team when it isn't on TV. However, football is different. There are more games on TV (ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, CBS Sports Network, FOX, Notre Dame on NBC or whatever channel) but watching on a computer can be harder for some fans, especially with eye problems or if it would be uncomfortable to stare at a computer screen for 3 or 4 hours. Basketball and baseball (not that I watch baseball) are only about 2 hours, so it's easier on the eyes. So let's make a pro-con list to find out whether ESPN3.com is good for college football or not.
-- More games to watch
-- If you are "on the go" and you still want to watch your team, ESPN3.com provides it if you have a computer
-- Ability to watch up to four games at once
-- If your team isn't on TV, you can still watch them and not have to pay
-- You can only watch games if you have Comcast or Verizon
-- Longer games
-- Some stuttering on video
-- Bad for your eyes to stare at computer screen for long periods of time
Overall, I think if you balance out the pros and cons, ESPN3.com is a good thing for college football. If you don't agree with me, that's fine. Discuss it in the comments. Hopefully the Eagles aren't on ESPN3.com too much this season.
