    If next year wasnt leap year the season would start on Aug 30. But since it is leap year the season will start on Sept 5(unless you schedule a Thurs/Fri game or a week zero game).

    There should be a Thursday night game of week zero. And then a Sarurday week zero game.

    Isn't that what these Kickoff Classic games would be for?

    I'm not sure if those are scheduled anymore. They might have gone defunct. They used to headline the current season usually pairing trans that were in the title hunt. I'm not sure if they really apply to the present modal. You guys kept insisting on a championship (playoff) so the preseason really isn't as important as it was. In fact I might go do far as to call the CFP championship game the kickoff classic. It serves the same purpose

    Yes, I'm saying start them as soon as possible. This year UF-Miami kicks it off on Saturday of week zero. I'm saying I also want a Thursady night game two days before the Saturday game. More more more!
