Is Thursday Night Still a Big Stage?

Ralph Friedgen made some interesting points about Thursday night games in recent years. These days, you have games on Sundays, Fridays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays sometimes, so Friedgen thinks it may diminish the national importance of Thursday night games. I tend to agree. In the WAC or MWC, teams will play on almost every day of the week, and I don't think that's a good thing for the schools or for college football. Yes, it does give the country more of a chance to see those teams on television, but having so many games on so many days I think ultimately waters down the product. How does everyone feel about this?

Doesn't water it down for me. Last night I peered in on the Buffalo/Miami (OH) game and got to see some great players that I normally wouldn't get to see if they didn't get on TV. To me it's still fun to watch...

I think the Thursday night tilt from BCS schools still is big. Yeah the WAC and MAC and whoever else go all over the map but the 'big boys' play Saturdays and one matchup Thursday nights. Still big.

Let us all say a prayer that Virginia Tech beats Maryland.


Virginia Tech -- 37
Maryland -- 13

I am extremely happy that Maryland stopped recruiting Tavon Austin - too much of an academic risk.

Go Tar Heels !
