Geeze. If I were their fans or players I would be pissed.

Who ever made that schedule didn't think about 3 weeks in a row?

Them before the craziness that is Saturday football. They're a fun team to watch. But, I understand what you're saying, I'm sure the fans/team hate it.

fans like it? I dun know. As far as the coaches go, why not lump them together to have some semblance of a normal week during that stretch?

I see your point. Maybe they are used to it by this week. Next week playing on Saturday will be weird....

I also think they fans don't mind.

They do not have the same mindset up there as we do. I don't know how big of a deal high school football is there. #### I'm baffled why high school football is on the radio in South Carolina. It seems anybody that actaully cares would be at the game.

Didn't Louisville play on Thursday night a lot before joining the ACC?

It's a good way to get visibility for your program (no other games to watch).

We are discussing it on T-Net, Shouldn't that answer your Q?

Like the other poster said, why not group them together?

Mainly they are on TV. What 18 to 22yr old doesn't want to be on TV every chance they can get? Also I think the coaches might appreciate all the exposure they are getting when they hit the recruiting trail.

It's the only way they get exposure

if they played on a Saturday their game would get lost in the shuffle of all of the other games. This way they get some type of spotlight

For a school that probably doesn't get on nation TV much I bet they love it


Plus it's great for stadium staff

and athletic department staff as they get a full weekend off
