    Makes me think of that old Sam Cooke number, "We're Having a Party." There will be plenty of time to party before the game.

    I'm curious but don't remember, Jim..... when was the last time we had a night game in October?

    Wooooohoooooo!!!! I was thinking 3pm; I never expected to see an October night game...woohooo!! All day tailgate! (And I'm very happy we didn't get the 12:30 and I didn't have to eat my foot.)

    To me, the real significance is not that it's a night game in October, but that it's a prime time national game -- maybe not ESPN, but 2 or U is still national.

    We played a Thursday night ESPN game at Georgia Tech in 1996 (and got hammered 48-22). Has there been one since then?

    Not necessarily. I believe U is still regional. We'll check listings as it gets closer to gameday.

    ESPNU is only regional in that sometimes games that are found on ESPN2 in some parts of the country are on ESPNU in others. ESPN2/U means that the entire nation will be able to see us play on one of those channels.

    Now, there's the situation that way more people have ESPN2 than ESPNU, but that's another story.

    I can't speak for all areas of the country, but around me in the northeast ESPNU is on the same cable packages as ESPN / ESPN2. You get one, you get them all.

    That's not always the case. A lot of times, ESPNU is carried on sports packages that you have to add (same tier as NBATV, Fox Soccer and others). Consider yourself one of the lucky ones!

    That's not what he means by regional - he means that some of the big sports networks (think ABC) will show a different game in different markets.

    Anyhow, blazin may not be correct, according to the espn acc blog, the ESPN2/U games will be determined between those two AFTER this week's game. So it may not be regional as much as seeing how the teams do this week.
    <devildeac> anyone playing drinking games by now?
    7:49:36<Wander> drink every qb run?
    7:49:38<loran16> umm, drink every time asack rushes?
    7:49:38<wolfybeard> @devildeac: drink when Asack runs a keeper
    7:49:39 PM<CB&B> any time zack runs, drink

    That is not the case in Norfolk with Cox Cable. I have ESPN and ESPN2, but access to ESPNU requires the Sports Package, which means a bigger bill.

    Right, in that, here in Denver, I may get something like Arizona-Washington as the PAC-?? game rather than an ACC game. It remains to be seen.

    I hope the TBCC has ram chops on the menu that day and our guys can feast on some roasted sheep, too.
    Not leaving until the game is over.

    7PM game is going to be horrible for student attendance. I've already heard the excuses start to crop up - "I can't make it because I have [social event] later that night." Ugh.

    As Duke continues to win and rebuild a winning tradition, priorities will shift. It is a process and takes time, but at some unknown point along the continuum, attending the football game will be THE social event.

    If that turns out to be the case, it just gives us football alums and veterans an opportunity to re-establish a model for participation.

    I have a dream that the student section will be full to the gills with a bunch of young, enthusiastic, rowdy fans, hungry to bring the innovation of CIS chanting to WW. Wouldn't it be great to have a home game VS U of Win at any cost, dark blue out, fans drowning out that nauseating drone of "Tar...Heels" with creative anti Heels chant. Agree 1000% that this game IS the social event.

    I hate the thought of the goal posts being the center of a great party on the quad in the middle of a bunch of students that didn't even go to the game. Hopefully attitudes will change by kickoff.
    Mmmm, BBQ!
