    I wish we'd go back to playing on Thursday night week 1. There was so much more excitement leading up to the game and we got a lot more national attention heading into the season.

    Nah. It threw everything off. Once in a while is cool, but not every single year.

    Nope. The 6 p.m. weekday kickoff in CLT was terrible. If they would've moved it to 8 p.m., I wouldn't have minded. It was fun beating the tarholes though.

    I liked having the national audience for our game to kick off the season. Never liked having game in Charlotte though.

    Was great when we won bc then you could just relax on Saturday. Sucked when we lost though bc it sapped my enthusiasm to watch other games on Saturday.

    Lose a home game?

    We used to do a lot of Thursday night home openers. Before ever going to Charlotte.

    I loved them at home. We’d be in the spotlight all day with live shots and interviews. It was great while it lasted.

    Then, after we won, we had a long weekend to chill and enjoy other games.

    Would only interest me if it was a big conference game week 1. Kentucky or UGA, something like that at home to a sold out crowd at 8PM. Otherwise just play on Saturday like everyone else.

    Other than that the only thing I'd like to see is us schedule Louisville for a home and away 8pm game.. Battle of the birds to kick off the season. I don't know why, but I could see that becoming a really entertaining series we play each season.

    We made Kenny Hill a Heisman candidate in one magical night.

    ...plus the tales of all the Aggie jizz that had to be scrapped off the State House steps. We owe Texas jr. a stomping.

    Would like to see us play in the Chick-Fil-A Kickoff one day, but Ray likes playing in Charlotte.

    The best thing about opening on Thursday was that it gives us 2 more days to get ready for uga. If they play at W-B it is great, CLT not good.

    I hate bye weeks just a little more than Saturdays when we already played a couple days before! i’d rather be a nervous wreck friday rather than wednesday.

    I made several of those Thursday openers. They were usually great games.

    I used to like these games when I was in school. If I was a season ticket holder that couldn't get out of working that day I might not like them as much.

    Not fun when you have to get up early Friday morning and go to work!
