    Make us play Thursday night and get us out of the way for the USCs on the weekend?

    Anything that puts them on TV more is fantastic for us out of staters!

    There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old’s life:
    The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves Orcs. ~ John Rogers

    Re: More Thursday night games to come??

    A thursday night game against Oklahoma St on ESPN would be much better then a Thursday night game against Kent St on clone zone. I don't think we will get any games on Thursday night through ESPN though. With only 7 games left for them to pick I doubt we get in. But it does give us a better chance at being on FSN though.

    Thursday nite games seem to find there way on TV. The more we are on TV the more recuits will see us and we will get more of them to come to ISU. Its allways good to be on TV. What a great recuiting tool.

    There aren't very many games on Thursday nights, so it gives us a good chance of being on national TV. Plus, I think those games have a pretty sweet atmosphere.

    I like the 1 Thursday night game we have now because its a good way to start the season and already on a 3 day weekend but not sure I would like to have more than 1 a year, 2 tops for sure.

    Re: More Thursday night games to come??

    Thursday tailgating and Saturday tailgating don't even compare. I dislike (Cyclone Home) Thursday games.

    I didn't really even care for that Friday Army game. Saturday just felt weird.

    If we are on national TV then thurs night games are great. If it is no TV, just make the game sat at 1.

    I thought the tailgaiting for the thurs night games in the past few years has pretty much sucked! The lots are dead until after 5 vs a sat game where the lots are busy by 8am.

    Re: More Thursday night games to come??

    I am pretty sure we won't have to worry about playing on Thursday nights this year. Why would ESPN come to Ames when we were 3-9 last year? The only game I could see them coming to is the Nebraska game.
