    CU opens the season against Hawaii, but the game has been moved.

    It is now Thursday, September 3rd. 7pm Hawaii time. No TV has been announced.

    Bet lots of folks on the east coast will watch a game that goes from 1-4am EST. Wow.

    Multiple reasons apparently. 1 of which was giving us more time to get home and over the jet lag. Want extra time because of 13 weeks straight of football. Probably a smart overall idea. Sucks for that one game though.

    I am on the east coast and I will be in bed. This really sucks.

    The football gods hate us. Our sacrafice of two virgins was not good enough.

    This could work out with respect to the team getting time to rest up after the long road trip prior to the home opener. Have to beat Hawaii. I'll also be taking Friday off for a nice long holiday weekend.

    no issues here.

    - no competition on TV. only hardcore Buff fans and football junkies would watch this game anyway, and only if nothing else was on. I predict more people will watch this now than they would've in the Saturday day slot.
    - extra rest following the island trip is a damn good reason. smart move by ADRG and HCMM.
    - for those of you this is too late for, DVR the damn game and get up 1.5 hours earlier Friday morning.

    Thursday night football!

    Prime time in Hawaii, could this be a recruiting move?

    3-4 years ago, we would be playing on Labor Day night and then playing again on Friday night. This is progress.

    I am sure the coaches will get recruits to that game. Might have an assistant or two stick around to scout games on Friday and Saturday too.

    Having no competition at the local time slot could be a big advantage.

    I like the move to Thursday, but I hate the time. I know they are college kids, and as close to invincible as possible, but how f-ed up are their internal clocks going to be playing a game at 11 PM?

    Also, since it is an earlier kick-off do we get to open camp a few days earlier?

    They weren't virgins.

    The late time sucks, but I'll probably watch it anyway.

    This really stinks for me and my friends that already bought our flights. Thanks a lot CUAD.

    Why am I not surprised? Our opening game has moved days in the last 5 years more than any other school (no hyperbole).

    Good maybe that means instead of P12N they'll put it on a channel I actually get.

    Had to book with FF miles before all those seats were gone. Oh well, we'll figure something out.

    gmail search FTW!

    my dad and I emailed that one back and forth -- sports and frugality are the only conversation topics we both find interesting.

    Sucks for me, but if it gives the Buffs a better shot at starting the season 2-0 there's very little they can't put me through as a fan. I'll put up with just about anything to see wins.

    I didn't read the article so I may be wrong, but I don't think this holds true for trips like Hawaii. People plan that many months ahead and don't go on a two month notice.

    Can't recall when there was a Sackygate on a Thursday before Labor Day holiday?

    You haven't heard? Turns out they weren't virgins. Who knew? That's the last time we put The Junta in charge of finding virgins.
