"Friday Night Football" was first aired on Sunday June 24th 2001. Our Guests were Joseph R Castiglione, O.U. Athletic Director and Al Eschbach, Sportscaster for WWLS radio.
Our topics included:
- Is O.U. responsible for NCAA's inability to stop simultaneous telecast / cable cast of Friday Night Football?
- What do you think about competitions between High Schools and Colleges in Athletics?
- After O.U. and Georgia vs NCAA case was completed, many feared college football would get too much exposure, has this happened?
- How do you balance game times to the times suitable for audiences to view?
- Has the power of television actually resulted in the destruction of the conference?
- What is the health of College Football nationwide?
- Question for Castiglione posed by Eschbach: "Who besides Bob Stoops did you consider for the O.U. Football Coach position?"
