    First game on Saturday?

    I was just looking at our schedule on cyclones.com and it says our first game against NIU is on Saturday, don't we usually have our first game on Thursday? any reasons for the change?

    I read in the CR Gazette that it will probably be moved to Thursday. Not official yet though.

    the last 2 years we've done that it's been for TV. I'm guessing we don't have that going this year... sad, I love the Thurs night deal.

    I thought we did it because it was Labor Day weekend? And we wanted to get the game in before everybody leaves for break on Saturday, and it leaves Saturday open for family activities, etc.

    It comes down to money and media coverage, regardless of the official story line from the AD. If they can have it on tv on Thursday night but not Saturday, it'll be moved.


    A program isn't built on one player and it doesn't succeed because of one player, thus a program won't fail if it doesn't get that one player.

    Re: First game on Saturday?

    I think the NIU game will get picked up by Fox or ESPN 2 instead of just a Mediacom game if it is moved to a Thursday night. This will be two bowl teams facing each other and my guess is that there will not be other Big 12 games on Thursday night.

    My coworker's brother in law is the S & C coach at NIU, I think NIU is on the right track with their coach and program as a whole. To be real honest with you all, I am more worried about the NIU game then the Utah game. You can all say I nuts but that is how I feel right now.
