I voted yes.
Any TV games we can guaranteee are worth it.
If people are upset about multiple Thursday games, then they need to drop the Thursday opener and take the Thursday conference game.
I would love to see ISU on ESPN and I think it is long overdue for the Big 12 to push for some Thursday night games. It is a great slot with no other football on and I would watch B12 games every week on Thursday if they were on. As it is I watch the Big East and sometimes the MAC games when they are on Thursday nights.
When someone asks you if you want to be on ESPN you say YES!
Seriously, we should never turn down the chance to get a game on ESPN. I don't care if it is Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, whatever. If they say we can play at a certain time and get on the air, we do it.
People always throw out the money and exposure issues for obstacles to advancing our program, this increases both. It may inconvenience some fans, which sucks, but if you really want to ***** about it, be sure to make your check out to the ISU AD for $300k first.
As for the season opener, if we can finally find a way to get it on TV on Thursday great, if not, we might as well move it back to Saturday.
It would be awesome to have a road game on a thursday night.
yes, if we are on prime time tv only
-K-State: I assume with the Arrowhead deal that moving it to Thursday isn't an option.
-Texas/Oklahoma: I assume these games will have no trouble getting tv coverage on a Saturday either way. Maybe if OU looks to have another down year, but that still seems unlikely.
I hate the Thursday games but I have always said if they were on good TV (Such as ESPN) it is something we should be doing.
It's not ideal for tailgating, but exposure and money rule the day. I'm for it as long as it comes with those benefits.
And it could end up being road games, I'm completely fine if we get to watch our game against Texas or OU this coming season on a Thursday night. However, I assume unlikely those teams would be the ones asked to flex their schedule.
