Not a shock, but it's official.
The football coaches of TCU and Oregon State were having a conference call promoting their upcoming matchup this year. I particularity liked the question about player arrests.
Saban talking about his defense against Texas.
I think there might be a few good pieces of information we could use here.
While looking over the Big Ten schedules, I noticed that 3 Big Ten teams are opening up the season on Thursday night, Sept. 2. While I guess Minnesota and Indiana playing on Thursday doesn't bother me or surprise me as they need exposure, I was very surprised to see OSU playing Marshall on that day. I thought the Big Ten was against Thursday games and had the TV deals in place to play on Saturday. I for one would never want to see UM play on Thursday, as it seems to me that it is for up and coming schools or the Big East who need the TV time and that is the only time they can get it. I didn't like UM playing Minny on a Friday, but I understand that was due to circumstances involving baseball and the dome. Does anyone know if this is a Big Ten Network thing, or are these schools trying to get some attention early on in the season by playing on the first night. It seems very odd that OSU is playing a very mediocre Marshall team on a Thursday. It would be one thing if they were playing Miami to open the season as a kickoff game, but this time and matchup is confusing to me. Any thoughts?
