    Although this one is a bit late, I like the night games. Having a free saturday is very nice.

    8:30? I'm really getting sick of these late games. Games should be played in the afternoon in the Autumn, not in the middle of the night. At least in Boulder (although better on the road too). CU needs to tell the Pac 12 that games played in Boulder will be early afternoon games. I don't mind one a season for a special atmosphere, but this is getting ridiculous.

    The night games get the students in the seats. I am all for that. The 4pm slot is the perfect one for me though.

    It also loses a big chunk of the season ticket holders and families with younger children. The students can drag their sorry asses out of bed at noon. 4 PM is certainly fine, but these 7 PM or later starts are getting old.

    I agree, but perhaps the worst P5 team in recent history cannot dictate TV times.

    I may be driving down from Portland but it's not clear yet. I need to talk with some of my OSU friends since we talked about getting nice seats. They have a little one, however, and the late start might kill it.

    This. Ranked teams get the best TV time slots. Win to play in the daytime.

    well, the good news is I can catch the early bird specials with all the other 35 year-olds before the game.

    get off my lawn.
