With TV gaining more and more control over scheduling, it is probably a matter of when, not if, this happens. Big 10 kicked it around at a meeting last week.

"Big Ten commissioner Jim Delany is trying to get feedback to be used in negotiating the next series of TV deals for the league. The current contracts run through 2016 (with Fox for the conference football championship game) and ’17 (with ESPN and ABC for regular-season games)

If the networks want Big Ten games on Friday nights — a slot traditionally reserved for high schools — Delany wants to know where his constituents stand and an idea of what a commitment like that would be worth."

Big 10 said no, for the time being. What will the SEC do?

College football just feels 'right' on a Saturday to me.

High school games around here are becoming more and more televised on Friday night.

I won't watch games on Friday night unless it's Bama against someone I care about. I don't watch Thursday night games, or the awkward Sunday/Monday games on Labor Day weekend. If they want me to watch, put it on Saturday.

Would kill the tailgating experience imo. I think that's one of the things I love about having Saturday as gameday. You literally eat and breathe football from the time you wake up Saturday morning to the time you go to sleep at night. It's as if the entire day is a celebration of football. Playing games on Friday night just would ruin that pageantry, I think. By the time you get home from work, change your clothes, get a quick bite to eat, etc...kickoff is about 30 minutes away and then the day's gone.

There's nothing like grilling/tailgating/throwing the football in the yard from sunup to sundown in anticipation of your game...all Saturday long.
