this weeks game is on espn. the 3D show with Brian Griese on color com. Working the game as a camera op. I love the camera meetings because Brian breaks down the game and tells us what he is looking for on both teams. I think he does a great job. cant wait. Go Blue

If you look at previous noon announcement threads, there is usually quite a bit of moaning about noon games because people have to get up earlier in order to get in tailgating before hand.  I personally (not that anyone cares) am ambivilent for the most part although do prefer noon starts when attending games.

I actually prefer 9am Pacific starts, because it doesn't torpedo the whole day. Keeps the wife happy, because I'm done with football watching by lunch and have the rest of the day to enjoy living at the beach and to play with my kids.

The noon start for Iowa actually works out for me as this will be the first game to which I will be bringing the kids (noon means they won't be on the downslide towards bed quite yet), weather permitting, of course (not taking them if it is rather cold or rainy, of course). They are six and five, so they  are probably a little too young to stay for the whole thing, but they do seem to enjoy football and we're going to give this a try and see how long they last. We'll be with a small group, including my wife and her parents. If you see someone in line for multiple rounds of fries and water, that's me.

Relatively ambivalent, while I love to tailgate sometimes 3:30 starts almost give me too much time.  I wouldn't have said that awhile ago, but considering my roomies have a tendency to blackout before 3:30 starts a noon start will be a nice break from playing house mom [also, I'm a guy, but yeah] for them.

I tend to enjoy the 3:30 starts early in the year when the weather is nicer, but prefer noon starts when it starts getting so cold.

At any rate, thanks to the OP.

I work saturdays seasonally, so tailor made for me would be 3:30's until mid october, then noon from then out with the occaisional night game for flavor. 

This is where I place my order for game times, right? Get on it, DB.

Considering how late I've been showing up for work lately on saturdays I guess this ensures they won't fire me for showing up late once again this year. So yay!

Good.  I'll be up with a party of 6 from Iowa for that game.  I'd prefer the early start, preceded with a few hours of tailgating, and have the rest of the day for more footbal watchingl/taking in the town/etc..  And, since I'll be there, no worries of who I'd normally have to listen to broadcast it (I actually don't think Beth Mowins is that bad, but still).

I marked the November home games as Noon before the season even started on my schedule. Like I said, Michigan only plays home games in November at Noon. Period.

I love me some Noon starts. That's the way Bo would have it. That's the way it should be.

on a black and white 13" Zenith TV with tin foil around the rabbit ears right? Cuz that's the way Bo would want it. You're so off base. If Bo recognized both the recruiting advantage and the crowd advantage of later games, especially under the lights, he'd play them all at night. To assume otherwise proved to me you've never met Bo, nor do you understand the intricacies of college football.

FWIW: LSU has played 37 home night games since 2005, and have averaged a top 5 recruiting class ever since. Les knows Bo!
