    Damnit, that's just too damn early to get any kind of decent tailgating in. I need to work myself up to the game. I'm usually still in my underwear at 10:00 AM on a Saturday.

    It's some kind of communist plot, I tell you.

    Reason # 12,456 why this game is a huge pain in the ass, and starting to become a waste of time and money.

    I have to agree with your points on that start time. 10AM is a crazy start time for any kind of football game! even JV football doesn;t start that early.

    Not only that, but this is only 1 of 2 10 am home games for the Buffs this year. The holer game is at 10am, too...

    A 10am local start time is ridiculous.

    conversly the 8pm FSU start time should allow us to make up for these early games.

    This is the price for 2-10 against a team going on a 9-game skid.

    Do you want CU to get the TV revenue, or don't you?

    Just suck it up for now. Come bowl season, it will be a point to rub in the noses of the bandwagoners.

    I don't think the fact that these teams are coming off poor seasons has anything to do with the ridiculous start time. In 2002 we were preseason #6 and that year the CU-CSU game started at 11am (or maybe it was 11:30, but either way it's still a ridiculous start time).

    The game is on at 10am because the Big 12's television contract has games at 11:00am.

    As Colorado is the only school in the Mountain Time Zone - they are the only school in the conference with the 10am burden.

    All about the early start time because of the problems with drinking in the past. They think that if they start it early it won't give the students time to get so wasted. Guarantee you it's a big factor in the start time.

    I'm familiar with all of the reasons behind the 10:00 AM start. It still sucks. I still don't like it. :sad2:

    ...and it won't change a thing. I never had a problem with starting the party at 6am in college and I figure nothing has changed.

    Don't associate this craptacular start time with us commies, thank you very much. It's all the fault of the capitalist dogs, and you know it. :smile2:

    Just party all night long in LoDo and stay up for the sonovabe-otch. That might not address whether or not you show up at Invesco in you BVD's, but if congress can stay up all night to vote on Iraq, there's no reason you can't start the festivities a respectable 12 hours before kickoff.

    If the commies were responsible, just think how bad the lines would be to the men's room? Invesco would be made entirely of cinderblock, and steroid use would be O.K.

    Sacky's complaint was about the start time, not the facilities. Everything's a damn gubmint plot, if you really think about it.

    I think the early start sucks too but I never need to work myself up for the game as I'm already jacked up for it.:thumbsup:

    Technically there's nothing stopping you from going to the game, too. So shut the **** up and stop your whining.

    I love night games. There is something about going through the day getting psyched up. This 10 AM start just doesn't allow me to get in "game mode."

    Now that you mention it - I will be starting about 15 hours early...and I might just do that. Got the kitchen pass to attend a fantasy draft with the high school buddies at 7 (never starts sober even after 12 years and we aren't exactly young anymore)...then we end up hanging out all night and crashing. This year we may just keep it up all night since we have a halfway split between allegiances for this one...

    I would say that sums it up best! Much prefer the mid-to-late afternoon or evening start times.
