I understand both sides, it's nice to get some national spotlight especially Thursday night, just have to compete with the nfl.
However I understand those with jobs that have meetings and obligations to ditch out for a couple days to go to a football game. I missed the osu game 2 yrs ago because I had a large prospective client fly in that day.....if the game was Saturday i would have been able to make it. So I understand the frustration with the Thursday / Friday games. I used to live the Thursday games when i was a pee on at the firm.....taking 2 days for a long weekend wasn't an issue.
Why would it? One bad game doesn't change a thing. Iowa will still be a darkhorse B1G championship contender, and Iowa State will be lucky to make the NIT.
If you ask the basketball analysts outside the state of Iowa I think you would be surprised to hear their responses. Iowa was pegged as a preseason top 5 team by one ESPN analyst and is ranked in the vast, vast majority of preseason top 25 polls
I understand that some are disappointed about losing a Saturday game. However, if we want to move up the food chain we have to embrace these opportunities. Now, the team has to show up and not wilt under the bright lights. Big opportuniy, but we have to make the most of it.
