This is a discussion on Possibility of 2 Thursday night ESPN games this fall within the Georgia Tech Football forums, part of the Georgia Tech Sports Message Boards category; Two Thursday night games possible for Tech | www.ajc.com Wow....
I hate Thursday night games.
But it sure can be positive National exposure if this seasons team plays like we HOPE that it does.
In the past GT football has often been JUST GOOD ENOUGH TO BREAK YOUR HEART!
I believe we are on the way to getting where we all want to be - Win Championships, and be more competitive with UGa and Bowl Games.
QB's looking up, WR's coming along(?), Welcome CTR, CMP and new AD, We have some good recruiters with a good class coming, Stamps back to ST's, all 3 phases should be better this year than last. We have team speed to match anyone we play.
What's not to like?
Both Thursday games would be preceded by a bye week. That is very good for us.
I don't like the games unless I can take Friday off.
Sucks for out of town season ticket holders
I like Thursday night games and I am an out-of-town season-ticket holder. Despite the trafffic, the late hour getting home and the unpredictable atmosphere. Our Thursday games have had jacked up atmospheres (UM in '08 (?)(the white-out game), and we've had funereal atmospheres (VT '05(?)(the Taylor Bennett first-play from scrimmage "time-out" face-plant game)
Anyway, I've always liked the concept of Thursday night football and it generally carries over into me liking GT Thursday night football. It's one area where I think ESPN tends to like us since we've been on-board with thursday football since they introduced it.
