Crusade against weeknight college football – is it hopeless?

Received a call Tuesday from a Gazette reader named Bob. He wanted to offer his thoughts on my column that bemoaned the invasion of weekday night games into the college football schedule.

Everyone knowns – well, maybe not everyone – that college football should be played in the sunshine on Saturday afternoons.  (I understand why games might be played on Saturday nights in the blazing south.)

“I agree with you,” Bob said before asking a question:

Why bother complaining? Is it going to change anything?

“No offense, my friend” Bob said, “but it’s hopeless.”

Is it pointless to complain about something that is unlikely to change? This is an honest question, by the way.

It is hopeless?
