What's everyone's opinions on having 3 games this season not on a Saturday?
I don't mind the Thanksgiving day game or SMU games being moved. Thanksgiving v Texas is better than playing Baylor the Sat. after. It's always a weird weekend and most people can't make it anyway due to holidays. SMU game is away and DFW alumni and most students can still make it.
Biggest issue I think is a home game against TCU now being on a Thursday. This will force a lot of season ticket holders to not make it. Hopefully it wont be a small crowd due to this. The only downside of Lubbock being so Isolated would be a situation like this when people just can't make the game.
The only game that might be an issue is the tcu game. Tailgating wont be as much fun if you work the next day. However with the positive change in atmosphere in lubbock and red raider nation, you could play the tcu game at lunch time on a tuesday and the fans will be there!
I am excited about the UT game on Thanksgiving night. As for SMU, I hate that it will be competing w/ zero week for the metroplex recruits that were planning on attending on Saturday. I just had to cancel my flight and hotel for TCU because I will be out of the country and not back in Houston until Thursday evening. I guess I will have to settle for ESPN's coverage when I get home. I doubt that I will make it to Lubbock this year but I am planning on attending TT vs UT.
