Why did Thursday nite games come about


Posted: Sep 12, 2013 12:21 PM
 

TV exposure , but Thursday nite is for HS FB Sat. at 1oclock is for CFB .
Thursday screws the schdule up, gets timing off, it just ruins CFB. There is plenty time for TV exposure . Go Tigers!!!!!!


I hate them too. Saturday's are college football "holy days"

Thursdays are just . . .Thursdays.

Aman to that


Count me "All In" for Saturdays at 1:00 p.m.

I would accept 2:00 and 3:30 as well as 12:00. That being said, I will be there, God willing, no matter the starting time.

when we have to wait so long to see Clemson play.

We get the big stage in front of every recruit in the country. This is a big deal this go around. The hurt of losing on Thurs night will soon end. Being embarrassed before prospective recruits won't happen again.

This is a different team and different day.

beyond the call of duty. i call bs on this. yeah, you swoffy- tv says they need a good team, you volunteer us! this isn't basketball, tailgating involves more than a toast with an uncorked bottle of wine, and a piece of cheese on a cracker!

We have extra time to prepare for NCS and GT. They are two of what most would consider our problem games over the past 10 years or so.

I agree, it's lemons to the fans but good thorough ### whuppins to the both of them should add enough sugar to make this a delicious year.

Clemson has only lost once to NCST in the past 10 years?***

Ditto that CT1988. It is a great thing for exposure. My goodness, Tiger Nation is having a year like no other when it comes to positive national exposure. The lead up to ESPN Gameday on Bowman Field, the prime time game and WIN against the mighty #5 SEC/ UGA Bulldogs, ESPNU Road Trip at Clemson that aired very shortly after and add the Heisman talk surrounding Tajh Boyd and Sammy Watkins and a now #3 ranking. YOU CANNOT BUY THAT! Now add the Thursday night game against NC State and what should be (knock on wood) a great win on national TV. GO TIGERS!!!


I hate Thursday night games.

Unless you're the home team. But even then some fans have a difficult time getting to the game.

It's crazy that it took years to realize it is unfair for a team to play a game on Saturday then play a road Thursday night game the very next week.

In the late 90's pre-Boston College it was near impossible to see Clemson up here in Massachusetts. I liked it at the time because I was guaranteed to see at least a game or two.

This season's schedule is fine with the Thursdays because for the two games we have a bye before hand and don't have a short 5 day week in between. That killed us in '06 after thrashing Ga Tech and 5 days later losing to Va Tech.

I'd like to go back to all Saturdays now frankly. For a few years we had no Thursday games which I thought was a Dabo decision. We had one last year I think and two this year.

PLUS now the NFL has decided to step on the NCAA's feet by holding its own Thursday games. This ticks me off because pro sports are king up here.

Only Saturday's again!

Yep. Our season was ruined in 2006 because of a Thursday

I just worry that this will hurt our attendance big-time vs GT later this year.

Fans from outside the upstate area will need to take both Thursday and Friday off to be able to attend this game.


Our ratings will be higher for that game b/c its on Thursday


Posted: Sep 12, 2013 1:01 PM
 

We will still have more Clemson fans there than Georgia Tech fans have EVER packed into their stadium.

Plus, we get more than a week to prepare.

Plus again, we get them at home for the 2nd year in a row, so its hard to complain.

I'm taking off Thrs & Fri to go to both NCST and GT games
