    Bye week behind us, BuffNation can now look forward to the nationally televised Thursday night affair with Arizona State.* Well, maybe not "look forward to."* Maybe more like "prepare ourselves for."* Let me be plain, not only has CU been struggling to stand upright this season, but they have an abysmal record in weekday games over the last few years.

    Primetime, weeknight affairs used to be the realm of second-tier conferences like the WAC and MAC.* Starting in the mid-2000s, however, it became vogue for the big boys to play the ESPN game as well, and many teams from the SEC, Pac-12, and Big XII have been jumping at the chance to air their wares over the exclusive national broadcast ever since.* CU got into the game in 2008, beginning with the epic Thursday night-er with West Virginia (AKA, the game that caused Hawk to blow a scholarship on Aric Goodman.* I hope he enjoyed the free education.).

    *(LOL, Josh Smith)​

    Unfortunately, ever since the prime-time gods have been unkind.* Including post-Thanksgiving affairs with Nebraska and Utah, the Buffs are 2-7 on weekdays since Sept 18th, 2008 (have been outscored 209-303), including an 0-4 mark in 2009 alone.* Highlighting that stretch is the infamous 38-54 loss at Toledo.* Maybe we should just give up the ghost.* ESPN may like to put the Buffs on, but the program would be best served shying away from the night lights.

    There is some good news, however.* The defending Pac-12 championmen's basketball team will be receiving their championship rings from El Jefe tomorrow night.* That little ceremony does deserve the primetime spotlight.

    --

    The Sun Devils and Buffs meet under the lights tomorrow evening.* Kickoff is set for 7pm.* Parking, traffic: sure to be a mess.* The student section: drunk out of their minds.* Blackout rules: in effect.* I hope everyone thought ahead to take Friday off, 'cause win or lose, ****'s about to get real.

    If you'd rather stay away from the Madhouse at the foot of the Flatirons, you can watch the action on ESPN.* Radio coverage is back on 850 KOA; Rockies baseball has mercifully been laid to rest for the winter, so no rude interruptions to the broadcast, whether you wanted one or not.
