To see if the fans agree.

I voted no. Stupid idea. Just like the MU-KU game in Arrowhead.

Only one more change to be implemented, KU / MU basketball game venue.

Which one? The basketball teams place twice a year? When Mizzou leaves the conference, then it would make more sense to play it on a neutral court.

I don't see this as being anything like the KU-MU Arrowhead game. That puts the MU game on a neutral site and in the state of Missouri, where our state gets the short end of the stick when it comes to tax revenues. More money in itself isn't a bad thing. That's what helps us continue to improve our facilities and the quality of our teams.

National attention is a good thing. At least we know this well ahead of time this year so we can plan our tailgating around it. Most weeks we are left in the dark until a week or two before the game to find out what time it will be.

babboy is right on!

christ! what's next? ? ? moving the KU basketball game with mizzou to kansas city? maybe we should play Kstate in topeka on every 29th of january? Home games belong at home-not on a school night-for christ's sake.

From a recruiting stand point, Thursday night games are great. The KU-KSU game is not going to get that type of national exposure on Saturdays with everybody else playing. I would also think it would boost Thursday night sales for local restaurants. However for the fans, I can see it not being the ideal situation.

Might be good for recruiting - Not as good as a winning team and spotless reputation though. Thursday nights will be good income nights but Saturday the money flowed into Lawrence all day and into the night. Out of towners will spend less time and money here.

Some of us out of towners will not be able to make it during the work week!

No to thursdays and no to arrowhead!

Thursday football is fine with me. Can't think of any compelling reasons not to play this game on a Thursday night, folks. Let's try something different for a change; Go Hawks !!!

I thought KU was doing the green thing.

Shane Garrett 5 years, 4 months ago

KU has a bye week prior to the game. KSU has a Thursday game at Arrowhead the previous week. Go Hawks. It will be on the telly
