    instead of Friday, Sat. and Sun. I know we hardly ever win on Friday night but now we got to wait until Saturday to watch the Tigers kick the aggies ass.

    I am pretty sure it is for tv coverage. Trying to have as few games as possible overlapping one another so that more can be shown live on tv.

    Heck, i'm surprised they don't start it on a Wednesday or Thursday to get more programming days and more money. I guess they would if it weren't for the pitchers needing their rest.

    It kinda sucks if we have to play Monday at noon, lots of people have to work. Fortunately I will be in school at the time so I can skip that. Hopefully we will not have to play Monday.

    By that time the pitchers would be rested. So that wouldn't be the problem.

    Why in the heck isn't the third game scheduled as a night game?

    Does anyone else find this absurd? Is that due to TV as well?
