New Big Sky Schedule: Poll

Should it stay or should it go….

We are into the first couple of weeks of the Friday / Saturday Big Sky conference schedule. As far as I know the Big Sky conference is the only conference with anything close to this type of schedule. The Missoulian had a rather nice article how the scheduled is being received by the conference coaches. It is mainly a negative article towards the schedule and it is implementation. You should check it out here.

Imbalance a black mark for Big Sky

I have not done many polls as of late but I would be curious what you think? On real a selfish note I think it works out great for those of us who lives out of town and want to come into town watch a game spend the night at a hotel, see the sites of our favorite University the next day and then take in another game that night before driving home. That said though, I think it is real unfair to the athletes. I do not think the system is being administered in an equitable manner, and coaches are trying their best to manipulate to their advantage. I also think it really is not saving that much $$ for the conference, and in the long run does not help the student athletes that much with their studies.

So what do you think?

    How about Friday/Sunday? It only bothers me when the schedule is unfair, such as the weekend the Bobcat Women beat a fresh Weber team on Friday and lost to a fresh ISU team the next night. Clearly, the Bobcats were more tired.

    I suspect the Sunday games will be gone after this year. I think the Big Sky is tired of paying for very limited exposure on Altitude.

    Tinkle said (on KPAX Sports tonight, I think) that the new schedule had already cost the Griz a recruit. He clearly does not like it.

    I like the Friday Saturday slate, but I really wish they would do away with the Sunday afternoon games.
