Any ideas of when Mich/Mich State game time and network?

I know this may be a little too early for the networks to decide but I am really hoping for a 3:30 ABC kick. I was wondering what you all thought after looking over the schedule. There are many attractive games that weekend for the networks.

They'll prob decide the week before.  The other games that have (currently) have 2 ranked opponents are SC v. Florida which is probably a CBS game, and KSU v. WV which prob ends up as a FOX night game

I'd tell you it'll be a 3:30 game, but I doubt it will be nationally televised. It might be on ABC regionally, because I bet that will be the B1G's most popular game that day.

I was willing to bet this game would make College Gameday a few weeks ago, but with the Florida South Carolina game, as well as the KSU West Virginia game that day, not to mention MSU being on Gameday today, that doesn't look like its going to happen.

I'm also hoping for a 3:30 game. Tailgating for noon games isn't nearly as much fun.

Has anyone else noticed how last year we had a ton of home noon kickoffs, and so far this year we have none (last I checked anyway)?

Fuck 3:30. I'm sick of these late starts. Michigan football should be played at Noon, just like Bo said, every weekend with the occasional HOME night game. But in this day and age where TV networks dictate start times, we're seeing a lot less of it. For God's sake, the game against UMASS was 3:30! Michigan only plays at noon at home. It's been a policy ever since a home game in the 80s was a late start and ended pretty late in freezing weather. Bo declared no game in November at Michigan would not be played past Noon.

Woop de do about the tailgating. I like having the satisfaction of getting the win and then I can relax and tailgate after the game. Does wonders for me.

I'm just really tense on game days.

Night Game, 7:00 kickoff. I'm calling it now.  Michigan travels to Nebraska for 8:00pm kickoff the following week, I guarantee this is Brandon's night game for the Big House this season.
