Not a fan of playing college football on Friday, High School Football’s night. Stay in your lane college football. Mid November when most high school football is over, or in playoffs, might be OK. But September and October. Please no.

Tom, I agree!! Would prefer Saturday’s for college football. Plus, no one can tell me that attendance isn’t hurt by playing on Friday night, for numerous reasons.

What does it matter in protecting high school football? High schools are doing the same money grabbing that CFB is doing…have you seen some of schedules these kids are playing? I daresay think some of HS travel more then most if not all of the SEC schools.
