I blame almighty greed for it. It's a serious breach of trust and tradition.
I am talking about college football games on Friday night, especially in Texas. Friday night is for high school football, not college and never the twain shall meet.
Tomorrow over the metroplex, SMU and TCU meet for "The Iron Skillet" on television. That's a shame.
It's bad that two of my favorite "church schools" have to bow down to almighty greed and the TV networks to play on Friday - just for a nice check. The should have said no and kept the game on Saturday, like most college games.
Sure I have watched other college games on Thursday and alternate dates. But playing a college game on Friday, here where high school football is king, is a big slap in the face.
I don't like it one bit. Too bad they are so hard up for money. But they are not the only ones. I get media guides from colleges around the land and many of them have schedule pages. On those pages they have the date and location of the games, but not the time. Why? Because the time will be set later by the TV networks, determined by how the big game or key matchup fits into their football schedule for that day or weekend.
Jikes. Money makes the world go round, and makes colleges invade Friday night.
