I don't know how I feel about college football schedules being spread through the entire week nowadays. Granted, you then have the opportunity to watch more, but it kind of diminishes the luster and excitement of spending your entire Saturday in front of the TV. And if you lose on Thursday like we did, it gets your weekend off to a bad start a day early.
Though I really, really wanted to go to Boulder for the game against the university of Colorado, instead of watching at Flanagan's with Alice and Chains playing on repeat in the background, a Thursday night loss would have resulted in two subsequent days of hiking with a frown. :(
