It seems to be the sole rationale for having moved the odd-year Stanford games to Thanksgiving weekend effective 1999. Anyone who thinks it's because of recruiting is deluding themselves.

It wasn't always this way. We occasionally played at USC in early December, and a lot of our games at Miami were either before or after Thanksgiving weekend. But that wasn't as conducive to mini-vacations or shopping junkets.
