We always seem to do so much better with the noon starts. When it is a home game, don't we have the final say in the start time?
I submit that the average temperature for a noon start is significantly higher than a 3:30 start, therefore we should ALWAYS prefer the noon start.
I don't have access to the database that the mathlete has, but at least from my memory I'd be willing to bet an arm and a leg that we have a much higher winning percentage with noon starts (at Michigan Stadium). Maybe the Mathlete or Misopogon can put this theory to the test. This data (and my memory) could be biased by the fact that we schedule most patsies for noon starts though.
If you were wondering IOWA is a 3:30 pm start tomorrow :(
