Noon games are the worst, but at least there are less and less of them going forward.

Thoughts?

You must hate your life then because you get assigned to all the exciting noon kickoffs Bethy.

Do we know what channel it will be on? If not, this could be a BTN game.

It'll be on one of the ESPNs or ABC per the release.

I always though 3:30 games were the perfect median.

Nothing like dancing on the field in 02...

Nothing wrong with getting drunk at 9 a.m. to go to a noon game, taking a nap and  then getting drunk again that evening. I dont mind.

I like a couple noon games while the weather is nice. I enjoy tailgating in the morning sun.

This is a mistake.  Just imagine...OSU and Kent State under the lights.  Missed opportunity here.

I'm good with a noon kick. Means no one can complain when I have beer with breakfast.

I hear Chris Berman and Jesse Palmer go to Applebees all the time.

a friend from my school where i just graduated is now a kicker at kent state, he had attended the camp when Sean was offered. I'm excited for this game, and this season because it's my age playing now. What am i doing with my life

It gets worse. The players stay the same age (range) but you keep getting older...

It's Kent Sta...zzzzzz.

I'll call the front desk, nothing like waking up at the crack of noon.

I am not very smart, but I recognize that I am not very smart.

One more positive is that we won't have to listen to Musburger call the game.

Musburger got bumped to the SEC network and will be doing games with Jesse Palmer this season, not the prime time ABC/ESPN slot with Herbstreit like in years past.

Musberger and Palmer ... Telling all the young men to grow up to be quarterbacks and analyzing if the teams are playing Stanford football.

Thank God we have a polar vortex going on, so maybe it won't be 95* and 95% humidity at kickoff.

I don't really like the noon games either, but I think you have to have some just to mix up the schedule.

Get this useless money suck of a scrimmage out of the way then catch some real football at 3:30p.

I'm psyched for Ramp though.

Kent read, kent write, kent state... Ok that was mean, but I couldn't help myself.  Seeing Bert talk to the press the way he did tonight on SEC media days made me feel chippy.

Living in SoCal, I hate noon games.   I get weird looks from my friends not from the midwest when i'm drinking a beer @ 8am pacific.

Probably this and Indiana will be noon games I would assume.

have to do this til noon then..crap.

there is no greater joy than watching Michigan get slammed. in anything

JohnnyKozmo's picture

Why can't college football just go the NFL route and make them 1 and 4:15pm starts?  I know it's only an hour difference, but it's just too early to expect anyone to be up in terms of energy for a game like that.  I know it's not worthy of a primetime spot, but I just hate the Noon kickoffs.  Then you look at games like the Red River Rivalry, and that's an 11am local kickoff.  That's ridiculous.  Anything that starts before Price is Right would be over should be against the law.

This game would have been interesting last year, with Dri still there. This year I think we see all 3 QBs before its said and done

GlueFingers Lavelli's picture

Would have been a solid game if Hazell where still there. Hoping he has the smarts to start Danny Blough at Purdue right away. Thas kid is going to be good.

Dustin Fox was our leading tackler as a corner.... because his guy always caught the ball.
