Thursday games are unusual this late in the season, and that means preparation time is cut from 4 days to 2.
Stamford head coach Wayne Hutchinson isn't concerned about the short week. As a matter of fact, he believes is more of a problem for his opponent, top ranked Mason, than for his guys.
Hutchinson said, "I think it's advantage for us. Being a spread offense we've seen just about every kind of front you could possibly see. It's going to difficult for them to prepare for a spread offense that throws the ball around. They line up foot to foot and get after you. They run a power "smash mouth" type football game. We're going to have to be ready in that aspect of the football game, too."
Stamford against Mason looks like a great match up. The Bulldogs and the Mason Punchers kick off at noon on Thursday at Cowboys Stadium.
