yeah, I always like college football on Thursdays but I suppose a choice now if the college game isn’t a good one. I think the nfl should skip thursdays for the first month other than opening game, but you know what, college shouldn’t be on Fridays that suppose to be for High School. Like John Madden use to say “fridays for high school, saturday for college, and sundays for pro” Usually in December, starting with the saturday with Army v Navy there are a couple of saturdays where theres not much college football, would be nice to have a couple of nfl games on those days.
