    Vols will play Utah State Sunday night, 8/31, on SEC network. Thoughts?

    No concerns here. Just all the more reason DirecTV has a 8/1/14 deadline of getting the SECN.

    I feel similarly about Time Warner/Comcast. Although I'll probably be at the first one

    The first game of my freshman year of college was the UNLV Sunday night game. I'm a fan

    Didn't we play Cal or some other opener on a Sunday night in the mid 2000's? I think they've said weekdays are out, but Sunday is fine.

    I'm not a big fan of the Thursday game but pretty much anything else to have a little fun and make a spectacle of, I'm in favor, be it now or if we'd won 9 straight national titles.

    I don't like Thursday games for the city of Knoxville or UT alum. A lot of folks drive a good ways to attend the game. I think it would hurt attendance. Plus they have to work. Also, it would be devastatingly disruptive to classes that day and the next.

    Groves may be right with UNLV. I was at Cal, that was a Saturday afternoon game.

    Yup, the UNLV game was Sep 5 2004 on a Sunday night. The 2008 UCLA game was on a Monday night

    I had forgotten that was a Sunday game, I was there but I was only 12. I don't know if y'all could have foreseen the impending nosedive the program would take at the time, but as a naive 12 year old I thought we were about to be really dang good for the foreseeable future
