"To be clear... the afternoon is a better time for a football game... Night games are just extremely overrated. The buildup is too long, they're anticlimactic, the celebration is cut short, and in late November, they're freezing... I say anywhere between 1 and 4 p.m. is prime. Gives ample time for pregame, happens soon enough, and is over at a reasonable hour."

So clear, so succinct.  Play it, once more, Sam, err, Kevin.

Here we go again...

the old compromise of the "tradition" of noon games versus night games called "prime time" by TV marketing gurus that results in open-minded people wisely saying let's cut the baby in half and have the rivalry game at 3:30.

The noon time is NOT going to change any time soon, because...

the TV networks have to fit in all the other rivalry games for Thanksgiving weekend.  You go east to west, Ohio State-Michigan goes first at noon in the Eastern Time zone.  Then Alabama-Auburn goes next in the Central Time zone, etc. etc.

No TV exec in his right mind is going to split viewership and dilute ratings by having Ohio State and Alabama playing rivalry games in the same hour!  Period.

[and BTW, the author's chart above clearly shows that the noon kick-off is NOT traditional.]

I have not come to honor Caesar, but to bury him.

KaBoom!

And yes, it's interesting, and in fact very telling, to have this quick and early 2021 Jack Sawyer recruit juxtaposed with the dragged-out Zach Harrison 2019 announcement.   

Both names rhyme with backpack.
Both are DEs.
Both are 5-stars.
Both are from Ohio.
Both are from the Columbus metro.

If you don't want the drama, this is the way to pre-empt it.
