Coach Bonamego: Black Friday games "don't make a lot of sense"

1

There has always been a sense of twnion when it comes to the concept of weeknight #MACtion and whether or not it does anything to strengthen the brand of the MAC. The particular week that gets a lot of flak is Week 13, when the Black Friday games occur. Call Coach Bono a doubter. In a presser, Bonamego made a statement regarding the scheduling of the Friday game, saying it "doesn't make sense" from an attendance standpoint. It's certainly understandable, seeing as most all campuses are vacant on Thanksgiving Break, but with the megacontract between the MAC and ESPN, it seems that the conference is very committed to continuing the tradition.
