    As you know, we have one of those this year with FOX.

    As a local guy, I'd just as soon play mid week as 11:00 on Saturday. I understand that out of town folks have a tough time with it. I'll miss 967 and his crew, I'd also miss anybody HD normally brings along.

    Consistent weekday NIGHT games will kill our attendance far worse than any 11:00 am Saturday morning game could every think of

    History doesn't agree. Some of our most well attended games were during the week. Some of our worst crowds have been 11:00ish.

    FWIW, we have never had "consistent" weekday night games.

    It would be nice to have ESPN on board. Maybe it is a good thing that he is staying on until his replacement is hired. I have never allowed that at my business, because the person usually checks out early when they know they are leaving anyway. I take that back - I allowed it one time, but it was when the person was going to work for a colleague of mine and needed a solid recommendation to stand.

    But we would under the ESPN moniker...

    A lone Thursday or Wednesday game every 5 years or so will not hurt attendance

    Two week night games a year would decimate it

    ESPN is slashing budgets left and right -

    Don't know if I want to part of a cost cutting measure - or have our games broadcast by talent sitting in a Bristol Conn dark room with no one in person in Ruston LA

    That's what they did with a lot of MAC games & ESPN3 games last year

    FS!, FS2, Fox Regional and ASN affiliates produce a much better product

    I suppose so if our commissioner was as desperate as Karl Benson or John Steinbrecher. I'd hope that our guy would limit those games rather than harping on "the ESPN platform" that translates into "ESPN 3".

    You are right on the production quality. ESPN sucks. I'll take your word for ASN's production quality since I'm not able to view ASN games on the worlds largest cable provider.

    I posted before I thought about what that might mean about week day games. I am all for weekend games, especially for people like me that cannot make a weekday game.

    Maybe, my point about not letting him stay in office was on point, after all. What is going on with the search and why should it take this long?

    The really big week night game that I remember we had on ESPN was that Red Out against Hawaii and we had the first team ESPN crew. Also wasn't Miami in Shreveport on Friday Night? We had the first team crew then, too.

    So looks like CBS is out of the picture? I'd like to see if NBC might want to pick us up...

    I think so - very few CBS College Sports football slots last year -

    FS2 is really needing content, especially if PAC12 goes to ESPN and jettisons Fox

    The press release said he'd stay on until they could complete a process to determine his successor and that a September meeting was "anticipated."
