UCONN game is set for 330

As expected the opener is set for 330. More time to tailgate, and I think the rest of you like 330 games over noon games. I really think this will be a great game and would love to see it.

Got a nice little 18-miler to handle that morning before kicking back on the couch and firing up the grill just outside.   

Am I really wishing away the months between now and then?...

There's no cure for this, is there?

This is as close to a night game as Michigan football currently gets. Get to sleep in a little bit longer for the drive up to AA. Can't wait for this game.

Read the title and got an adrenaline rush just thinking about football season. Cant wait to watch them lay the smackdown on a poor unsuspecting Uconn team. Now I got to go break something so I can calm back down.

As a student, I could not be happier to have a 3:30 opener, since that gives me much more time for [scholarly activities] in the morning. My dad and little sister (who will be a freshman at UConn this fall) will both be there too, joining me for said [scholarly activities].

Forecast? Me and my dad will trash talk my little sister relentlessly. She will in turn make fun of my dad for not getting in, and me for my awful GPA. Good times!!

And for the actual game? Send the Huskies back to the Big East, tails between legs and start the season off right, shutting up the doubters with some more Ws.

Can't wait!!!

I was hoping for a noon start because I already have a lot of anger festering from this long, long offseason. I guess this gives me more time to worry and be antsy for kickoff.

NCAA football 11 demo comes out in June, then the real game July 13.  This will hold me over until fall.  I'd probably explode if the game didn't come out until the season started.

Love the 3:30 starts.  No pressure to get up early from the night before and start drinking.  Also, will definitely be needing a cab back home from the bar after this one. 

I don't have a drinking problem.  I swear.  Michigan football is an exception, not the rule.

Last year I had to miss the first drive (Tate to Hemmigway for the score) because the Noon game went into OT.  Nothing like waiting all season for opening kickoff just to miss it and the first drive with a new hyped up qb like Tate. 

Either way, lets get this season started, 101 days....

is always a better time for students. I know it sounds real un-rah rah of me to say this, but it's better when you don't have to get up until 930 and can start drinking at noon and still be buzzed/drunk when you get to the game. I hated getting up at 730 or 8 and drinking lukewarm Keystone Light that we forgot to put in the fridge the night before.

depending on whether or not we win the coin toss, our first TD should be taking place anywhere between 3:32 and 3:38.....and I should be lighting up my first victory cigar of the season sometime around 7:45.

This thread has absolutely nothing to do with sanctions! 

Could it be?

WOOOOOO-HOOOOOO!!!  Football is coming!  Its on its way!!  (smashes beer can against skull)  Fuck Yeah!  Woooooo-Hooooooo

This gives the team three and a half hours more to think about how pissed they are over the last two years, how it's "us against the world," and how much they want to go out and destroy whoever is across the line of scrimmage from them.  It will also help the buildup to a point where Michigan comes out with the intensity of a rivlary game.

This should end extremely well for Michigan; hopefully, it signals to a large audience that Michigan football is truly "back."

Call me old fashioned, but I love noon games.  I think I might have to move to california just so that I can wake up relatively early and start watching college football, rather than wait all morning.  Then again, I secretly love watching College Gameday.
