I don't mind 8pm before, say, Halloween. November/December 8pms suck.
I agree with you in bad seasons like these but I am excited because now I can play double duty between the hockey and football games.

I hear ya Dooley. I do like it in the respect that I can clear the yard of leaves before the game (ie get done). My concern is the guy I go with (my uncle) is elderly, and I get nervous about extreme cold with him. He's a tough dude, but he's in his late 70s.

Love this start time - will keep soccer moms from dragging their kids to game in the Dark Rent Lots and should allow for easy entrance and exit to stadium for those 'fair weather' semi-fans...

Will be there with Chili and Jack Daniels -

Won't be 45 degrees in the second half. Doesn't mean I won't go but be prepared. Anyway lots of parking and easy egress.

6 days out, but the high on Saturday is 38 and a Low of 29. Good news? No rain. This game is easy to prepare for. Wear layers, a knit hat, and gloves and don't worry about what will or won't fit under the rain shell. D-U-N, Done.

wool socks. Cold creeps up from the concrete through the feet, I don't care what shoes you have on unless they are platforms like Ace Frehley used to wear.

They sent me back to the truck the last time I tried to wear those in.

Hand warmers in bulk at BJs warehouse, with a coupon this week!

'Cause you can smuggle booze in the heel and it doesn't give "security" a reason to feel you up without first paying for dinner? :eek:

That game time sucks! We shouldn't have any 8PM games unless it's the first one of the season.
Can I ask why only the first one of the season?

My favorite time is actually 330 - night games are normally a great atmosphere.

I love pre-halloween night games. They absolutely are the best. Post-halloween should be nooners, or 3:30 at the latest. That's just my perspective from a fan-comfort view.

You can get hand-warmers for your boots as well. They hold out for at least a half.

Sitting in bad weather for 7-2 Minnesota and Ohio State isn't really the same thing as Cincinnati and 2-7 UConn.

It's a stupid time to play the game. Especially since it's a game ESPN sold to CBS.

Their game was at noon -

Why is it that you believe it is a stupid time to play the game - curious?

Because it's colder at night than it is during the day. Sorry I thought that seemed obvious.
Well I am from NE - 38 high and 28 low is pretty much the same to me - cold to me isnt bad weather -Sure if the sun is out it may feel a little warmer, but there could also be day time winds that die down at night or vice versa, but you also said that watching 7-2 Minnesota is different than 2-7 UConn so I felt there was something else in your reasoning.

I prefer the later games myself as I have kids who normally have sporting events during the day so the 330 and night games normally fit our family schedule better.

I am now able to attend those events - so to me not a stupid time at all.

Because in the beginning of the season it's usually warm and stays light out until nearly 9:00. I hate tailgating in the cold and dark, freezing in the stands, and a long drive home feeling tired and not arriving until after midnight.

You are familiar with the concept of the sun I am guessing? It may only be 10 degrees warmer... but if you've sat in the stadium on a cold sunny day you may have noticed it is more comfortable on the sun side than it is on the pressbox side.

I get that some people prefer different times. That doesn't change the point.

So because of the dark - got it!

Its gonna be cold at 10 am Saturday tailgating.
I would assume you are still gonna have a long drive home feeling tired and not arriving until after midnight on a night game in August...
