The Big Ten will be playing some Friday night games starting next year.
This decision is being met with mixed reviews. One Big Ten coach’s wife is particularly unhappy.
Doreen Ash, the wife of Rutgers’ Chris Ash, isn’t looking forward to having to possibly decide between attending her son’s high school game or her husband’s Rutgers game. She also mentions the adverse effect it could have on recruiting.
This is ridiculous. As a HS parent I will have to choose between my son's game or husband's game. There will be no recruits & limited fans.😡 https://t.co/wXKobW6L6A

Looking at Mrs. Ash’s point, a team hosting a Friday night game would stand to lose a major opportunity to host recruits, since most high schools play on Friday nights. There’s also the matter of deciding how these games get divvied out among conference members.
Do you like or dislike the B1G’s new scheduling plan?
