Wife Of Big Ten Head Coach Upset With League's Future Friday Night Home Games

The Big Ten will be playing some Friday night games starting next year.

News of this development broke earlier today. Big Ten Friday night games are a reality thanks to the conference's new TV deals with ESPN/ABC and Fox, according to the Chicago Tribune.

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.

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.
