Sherrill has not been in SEC meetings

Alleva is opposed to Thanksgiving night game
Nothing has been decided yet
League cannot dictate what LSU does, LSU will decide

I don't buy the last one

He did make it sound like a cupcake will come in the saturday before if we are stuck playing on Thanksgiving

All the people who hate the idea should be happy

There are a lot of folks doing family things on Thanksgiving as well as out in the woods or in the duck blind hunting. My duck blind does not have cable or satellite, and I really do not want to piss away a perfectly good ticket. Put the game on Friday night.

I'm happy because my wife already said I can't go to the game.

I'd be fine with it being a Friday night game. But having it on Thursday eliminates either the LSU gameday experience or thanksgiving, and neither should happen.

not sure when we started paying attention to what Jackie Sherill says....not saying he is wrong, just saying I think we can find some better sources...

If this is confirmed to be a day game I sure hope this board is not flooded with people complaining about the lack of night games...

Given his "success" at MOO U, I am not sure why anyone would put any stock in what this senile crackpot has to say.

It was probably a feeler to see what the response would be, has anybody seen the TAMU response?

This is brilliant!

A Thanksgiving Day game would be asinine!

Joe Alleva is the man for standing up to THE MAN!

You might as well never look at the rant again. It will probably be the same people as well.

ETA: I would love a thanksgiving night game. Thanksgiving is a pretty stupid holiday to begin with.

I'm pretty sure the league can not dictate when LSU, or any school, plays. It's more of a TV and exposure issue whether a school decides to play on a given day.

The SEC will put LSU where they want them and Alleva can't do anything about it.

Some snide posters will soon arrive to label Alleva a petulant whiner who just doesn't know what's best for the program! LSU AD's will complain about anything!

Good. I'd prefer Arkansas anyway; much more entertaining games and a better program. Keep it on FRIDAY.

I don't like Jackie Sherrill, not even a little, but given what he had at MSU he did as well as any coach could do. Seven winning seasons and six bowl appearances including a top 12 finish in 1999 at MSU isn't indicative of a terrible coach.

Granted, those last three years were brutal and he deserved his fate but prior to 2001 he did a commendable job at an SEC also ran school.

Thank God. Good job joe. Having that game on Thanksgiving night is a tremendously stupid idea.

ACTUALLY I believe when it comes to moving the day of games the university has a say so there. They may be powerless about network's moving the times, but not so much here.
