    Rivalry Saturday

    What would everyone think if the iowa game was moved to the friday or saturday after thanksgiving like it was in 2001 due to 9/11. There are a lot of other rivalry games on these days would it help it any to move it to this weekend?

    Not a good idea. I'd rather concentrate on conference once conference play starts--and this is rarely good weather.

    I disagree big time. I think it would be a great idea. It would always be a meaningful game, no matter how bad each team's season has gone up to that point. Also, it would always be a sell out, and sell out games are difficult to come by in November.

    Loved it in 2001 and would like to see it played that weekend again.

    Boy, that was tough to admit. ;)

    Re: Rivalry Saturday

    Either way it's fine with me but I sorta like it early in the year. It's usually the first real game both teams play and usually both teams are undefeated with high hopes going in. If it were played this year late in the season it wouldn't be very exciting since we're terrible and we'd get lit up. The 2001 game was awesome but I prefer it early.

    It's an interesting thought and I'm sure they've considered playing it late but Iowa weather in late November is problematic.

    I don't want to see the kids get play a big game a week before the Big 12 championship. I am going to assume that ISU will be playing in them soon.

    We went 0 for 2008 in conference this year and we're concerned that a late season game against Iowa could interfere with our conference championship game? Right.

    Then we better not play any games that weekend, because if we are in that position, every game is a big one.

    If we are in the running for the north title then i believe we can handle Iowa just fine.

    'Bout the same as being concerned about playing Iowa in the last game of the season...

    I'd like it. It would be a nice way to end the season, and maybe get some extra attention along the way.

    If you have to sell tickets to something in November, it wouldn't hurt to sell them for a rivalry game.

    Re: Rivalry Saturday

    I guess I am a fan of the game being played earlier as well. I am pretty sure it is because of the weather too.

    Re: Rivalry Saturday

    I'd rather see it played the opening weekend of the season compared to the last. We'd get better television coverage that way. Plus, we've been pretty bad on Thanksgiving weekend games in recent memory.
