and contract or not, watching a Michigan/Michigan State basketball game on Fox will be weird for me, 2) It is a noon game.  It is not uncommon for us to play at Breslin on the weekend, but it is typically a 1 PM game.  That combination of things will make it weird for me.

Granted, I haven't yet seen the entire TV schedule for college basketball yet if it is even completely parsed out yet (it may not be, which would explain much), but it is entirely possible that given the games which are supposed to go that day, in the eyes of FOX and ratings, that's exactly where they think this game stands on a national level that Saturday. I'm not used to that game tipping at noon either, but, well, we have seen similar disillusionment over football start times too.

NC State in the BIG/ACC Challenge, bringing home a W for the BIG.  Looks like the ante has been upped, playing the Tarheels in Chapel Hill.  Damn.  Will have to bust ass for that win...

I'm apparently old (will be 40 by conference season), so I enjoy my 5:30PM early bird dinner so I can sit down and watch some hoops while I let my food digest.  

I like that more than the five 9PM starts.

will be on BTN.  There's actually going to be a decrease in TV exposure with moving the tourney up a week.

On a tangent --- why does Michigan seemingly have an annual 9 PM game against a SWAC school in the 3-4 days immediately preceding Christmas?  Does anyone ever go to that game?  At least make it 7 PM.  But I guess TV dictates things.
