|High School Football Forever|
Anyway, this left me scrambling for a post today. So I did a little bit of digging and found that Jim Delany and the Big Ten are back to being greedy shitheels again. What the fuck else is new? In their never-ending conquest to milk every penny out of everyone, their new rumored idea is to make Friday night their own football night. Are you ready Big Ten Football Friday Night? Of course you aren't because it's a stupid idea.
Look, bros, college football is played on Saturday. We all love our November weeknight MACtion but that is an outlier. Boise State and other schools in that area like to play on Fridays for the exposure. Why? Because the little guys need all the exposure that they can get. And that makes sense. Why a conference with their own fucking network, a heavy fill of games on ESPN, and EVERY game televised feels the need to do this, I do not know.
I understand that this might not matter much to any of you readers here (due to your age and most of you not having bastards yet), but in Ohio, Friday is for high school football. Period. Dan Cummins confirms this. And when you play college games on Friday nights, congrats on wasting an opportunity to recruit and pissing off most people. If you think that the Big Ten would just stuff a fuckload of Indiana games on Friday, you will be sadly mistaken. Every team would be required to play on at least one Friday night over the course of the season. THIS IS FUCKING STUPID.
Again, this is the midwest and you don't play college football games on high school football nights. I'm sure that there will be some losers here that think that this is NBD, but they are wrong as usual (looking at you, Drew). This is such an obvious cash grab attempt by the conference without any regard for what the schools and fans actually want. Hell, most of these schools have a hard enough time filling up their shitty stadiums. It just amazes me to see how much Delany cares about cash money over what is best for the league. I'm still LOLing at Maryland and Rutgers. How about making decisions based on quality and not TV markets? That's your #1 goddamn problem right there.
Big Ten fans (especially Ohio Buckeye turd suckers) always cry about haters and not getting any respect. If you start playing games on Friday nights, there will be absolutely zero reason for the haters to ever stop hating. This would only confirm that the conference is a joke.
Before we go, I feel like talking about RibFest next Saturday. Secretary of State Grumpy is on top of the reservation. We want to eat (Barley's) at 6 pm and COCKtail hour will begin there at 5. How about we start getting a head count? I know that Damman is out this year (acceptable reason) but I demand some new blood at the table. Also, does anyone have an idea on something groin-grabbingly good to do after ribs? I'll always recommend Private Dancer. One more week, BRAHS, so let us know if you are in or out. Don't be a pussy either--if you only comment sparingly or just read, you are more than welcome to break pig bones with some of the commenting legends.
