    You are literally competing with a game across the street as of right now. RHS is at home vs Airline. I have to assume they reach out to get that game moved to Thursday at least? Right?
    UPDATE-RUSTON vs AIRLINE on THURSDAY

    So. . . as I understood it, part of the reason CUSA doesn't have a great tv money deal is that we didn't want to be forced into weeknight games the way ESPN likes to do to the MAC and the Belt.

    But if we're getting less money, and we're on less prestigious channels, and we have to play on Fridays? That seems less then ideal.

    So much for building a fan base.

    To me, (especially since I live in Shreveport) Thursday/Friday games are not a big deal. Tuesday/Wednesday games are the what we didn't want to get into.
    It looks like C-USA's new deal (started last year) with CBSSN calls for 3 Friday night games per year. The MAC plays most of November on Tuesday-Thursday

    UL-L has a home game on a Wednesday in October

    Most conference play on Thursday/Friday, including the P5 -

    ACC, Pac 12, Big 10, Big 12

    The SEC is the only conference that plays all games on Saturday (except Labor Day & Thanksgiving weekends)

    I'll be driving by Ruston on Friday, Sept. 20, and headed to Shreveport for a game that night: defending Texas Class 6A Champion Longview vs. defending Louisiana Class 5A runnerup West Monroe.
    A sizeable crowd is expected as both schools' season ticket packages include a ticket to the game at Independence Stadium.

    Depending on Cedar Creeks schedule and who our starting QB is for the Dawgs, I may opt for the better on field product at CC.

    Why would you go to a high school game instead of the LA Tech conference opener? I know you're a fan of West Monroe, but you don't have kids playing there do you?

    Friday night means I’m out. Not using a day of vacation time and driving 300+ miles one way to watch what we are putting on the field offensively right now.
