    Saturday, September 4th at noon. Game is to be broadcast on the Mountain.

    Seriously.

    That means that the 50,000 people that show up to watch the game in Denver can watch the game with the 4 folks nationwide that get the Mountain.

    Since the game is just on the Mountain, couldn't they push the start time back?

    Why are we playing CSU on a neutral site again?

    doesn't the mwc have any kind of a deal where if a real network wants the game, then the mountain has to bow out? i don't know--- i am just asking...

    fer chrissakes, we've gone from abc/espn/fox to this????

    it is because it is their "home" game, right?

    what a joke of a conference.

    Yeah this is CSU's "home" game year. If it was played in Ft. Collins it would be the same thing, so don't knock the neutral site as the cause.

    The reason it is on the Mtn. is because no national broadcast channel has decided to pick up the game. That is more of a statement on the national appeal of the game nowadays.

    Anyone that thought the Mountain West Conference would be a good option for CU can see just from this one game why that is ridiculous.

    I think I'll try to go to the game this year, probably be enough cheap tickets!

    I get the Mtn on DirecTV, and I dont even have the added sports pack. So most of the bitching in this thread is ridiculous. Noon start time sucks my balls tho

    Nothing to do with the conference...everything to do with the the person who was retained as our head coach...

    Fox College Sports. One step above your average high school video production channel. (Below some I've seen, actually...)

    Lets see. What else can we blame him for? I got it. I blame Hawkins for tuition going up 9%!

    Noon is better than the 10:30 start time we had a couple years ago. I'd prefer an afternoon game, but Noon isn't terrible. Plus it avoids the late afternoon thunderstorms that typically roll in around 4:00 PM.

    I care less about the time of the game and more about who the starting QB will be for the Buffs. If Cody trots out there, I just might lose my mind.

    I can live with it. If Hawk loses again, he should be FIRED by about 4pm - still plenty of time to enjoy the remainder of the Labor Day weekend.
