It’s pitiful. Wagner, Robert Morris, Gardner-Webb ... c’mon. Anyone know the mascot of these teams without looking them up?I'm a huge College football fan and self-described decent gambler Joker_PDT_53, but I may be OK going to the SFHS freshman games on Thursday nights with that lineup!!!
If I had to guess, the answer is along these lines.I used to look forward to the Thursday night game, but that schedule is horrible. The only one worth watching will be the Egg Bowl Thanksgiving night. Did the NCAA get in cahoots with the NFL and promise to only schedule crud games so everyone will watch the NFL?
I used to enjoy watching Georgia Tech play on Thursday nights back in 2008-2011. Seemed like they played almost every Thursday, and it was interesting watching Paul Johnson try and run his weird flexbone offense in a D1 conference. It was usually on just after one of my labs and my lab partner and myself would walk down to the Strip to watch. Now GT sucks, Paul Johnson is gone, nobody good plays on Thursday nights, and I haven’t been in college in years. Oh how the wheel turns.If I had to guess, the answer is along these lines.
Intentional or not, it happened because the bigger names that agreed to Thursday games 10+ years ago realized the ramifications of NFL games being played on Thursday night.
