I know people don’t like change, but we did it last year and it couldn’t have been embraced more than it was and it beats playing at noon on Saturday. People are late arriving, kids are playing soccer. We never get that crowd. In lieu of the Friday game, we’d be playing Saturday. I had more complaints playing at noon. Part of playing on Friday helped the ACC get the television package over the goal line so us and Boston College will be playing some Friday night games. It’s a nice novelty game, it gives people a chance that aren’t going to be at that Saturday noon game, and people who want a little bit of atmosphere on and be the only game on. That’s great."
