    Well that sucks. I was planning on going to the game with a few buddies, but now that it's on a Friday I doubt they'll be able to attend. :mad::mad:

    More prime time exposure for IU and a chance for a major upset with a big TV audience.

    LIke CTA, I HATE College FB on Friday nights. It's a Saturday game!

    I do like IU's chances in this with Wiscy graduating their key RB and sure a few others, and IU returning a lot. Let's hope Wunderkid Sheridan has a superb package ready and Womack is improved in his overall planning with most D returning and more experienced.

    The way I have read this in another article was that this just isn't our opener but the opener for all of CFB.

    Before you get to carried away, remember OSU- IU Opener three years ago on the Thursday before Labor Day, and how well that played out?

    Relax, pal. No one's getting carried away. I said "chance."

    We actually did well for the first half, then ran out of gas and got run over in the second. It was a great evening for football and was good national exposure for IU.

    As much as I hate the concept of stealing the spotlight on Friday nights from high schools, this makes a road trip to Wisky more appealing to me. From central Indiana I can drive to Madison on Friday, catch the game and stay overnight. Spend Saturday of Labor Day weekend exploring the city, and catch the night life of Mad-town on Saturday night (apologies to No Vertical, but Madison is a FUN place to be on a fall weekend). Drive home Sunday morning and still have Monday to rest and recover before heading back to work Tuesday.

    Already pumped for this game as I'm likely going. Been a long time since attended a game, or a win in Mad-town.
