When is the absolute last day the networks have to decide for the msu game start time?

There's a chance that it'll be a six day pick, which means they'll choose on the Sunday prior to the game. More likely we find out on Monday after the Purdue game during the normal twelve day pick.

Please be a night game. I have my wife's siblings coming over to visit that weekend from out of town and I told my wife I don't want them in my house during the Michigan/Mich St game. If it's a night game they will have to go to my wife's brother's house across town that night.

I dunno about you guys but i cannot stand watching a Michigan game with people who don't care about Michigan (or football in general) much less a rivalry game! Plus these 2 particular siblings are so freaking full of drama and always create arguments with the other siblings

I don't get posts like this. I mean, I do, you want an outlet to voice your frustration. But then, I don't get your problem. Can you not watch it in another room? Go to a bar? Think of it from their perspective. You essentially want to ban your in-laws from your house because you want to watch TV. Kind of a chump move. And then to voice it here...?

If you knew these siblings, you'd understand. And don't worry, they don't check this board...

Also, I'm not banning them from my house, just going to set up the schedule to where they are at our house another night and at another family member's house during the game. 

But yes, my love for Michigan football exceeds my love for these 2 particular sibling in-laws.

I totally get this. If it's a big game I really don't want to watch with anyone else unless they are dedicated Michigan fans who are there to actually watch the game. My wife will watch the game with me, but if there is another woman present she will want to talk through it and this pisses me off. Also, the dog should really not be in the house when I'm watching a big game because she will end up cowering under our bed upstairs.

...on more than one occasion. However, the "Beat _______" response is irritating and distracts from a topic that others are obviously interested in. We all want to win the next game on the schedule... but I don't think discussing the kick off time for the game after next suggests that anyone is looking past Purdue. Stay on topic... or move along.

I would kind of rather have it be a 3:30 game.  I'm not going, and I drink a lot on Michigan v. Michigan State gameday.  If it is a night game I will have to wait to start drinking until at least 10:30 AM.

Unconfirmed rumors circulating that some of the UofM facility staff have been told to expect a 7 or 8pm kick for that one.  I for one am rooting for 7pm if it has to be a night game.
