    Why is Iowa State vs Iowa on a friday?

    It is the stupidest thing i have ever seen in my life. There is high school basketball on friday nights in Iowa. Their ratings have to be down a ton just because of that fact. I feel that the game this year would have been packed if it was on a saturday. Also ESPN would probably pick it up on a Saturday. I think a lot more people would pay attention to it on a saturday also compared to a friday. Very poor scheduling. Does anyone know the reason why it's on a friday?

    It's always on the Friday of Dead Week. Every year because ISU and Iowa do not want to play during finals.

    As if saturday would really be that much worse.

    FWIW, its been on saturday 2x the last 10 years (07 and 01), both while at ISU.

    It is actually because Iowa started a rule for their sports that they can't play a game from Saturday of finals week through finals. The Iowa state game is usually the game that it affects so that is why they play it on Friday

    Re: Why is Iowa State vs Iowa on a friday?

    No complaints here and the crowd was good especially for Iowa City. Conflicts will always exist on weekends, College games don't schedule around High School ball. Also Sat I would not have been able to attend but since it was on a Friday I was able to drive over and back, not too mention how the weather turned out today many people would not have went.

    A lot of local high school games were scheduled for tonight before their cancellation for the forecasted storm. Basketball can have a conflict at any time.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Maybe they shouldn't schedule it on dead week then. Maybe the Saturday before dead week. Ratings would be up and everyone could watch the game on an ESPN channel. Just very poor scheduling. Losing a ton of money. Half the people i talked to didn't even have a chance to watch the game because of high school basketball. Its a joke.

    Iowa isn't losing squat for money. It was on BTN. They're making a MINT off BTN.

    And no one outside the state of Iowa is going to care about Iowa/Iowa State.

    Wanting college basketball to schedule around high school basketball is the " stupidest thing i have ever seen in my life."
