What time is The Game?

Any idea when the start time for Michigan - OSU will be posted?  I know it's almost always at 12:00, but we seem to be shying away from noon starts the past two years.  

Asking because I need to choose a post-Thanksgiving flight and have two choices, one which would cause me to miss a 12:00 start, and one which would cause me to miss a 3:30 start.

because of the potential ramifications for "The Hoke. The Hoke..."

"Asking because I need to choose a post-Thanksgiving flight and have two choices, one which would cause me to miss a 12:00 start, and one which would cause me to miss a 3:30 start"

Since obviously he's not intending to miss a noon start of The Game, what else Thanksgiving Weekend is of enough importance to schedule around?

Turkey Dinner, what else!?

Without a doubt, then, he is worried about the flights and potential start times for Turkey Dinner.  If he takes one possible flight, he's saying he would miss a noon start to Turkey Dinner.  in this scenerio, he'll need to eat turkey early, lets say by 10 or 10:30am, to allow for sufficient time to get 2nd helpings on the turkey, stuffing, and yams, then have time to drive,  get checked in, and past airport security to board his flight. 

 

On the other hand, worrying about a 3:30 start time for Turkey Dinner shouldn't be a problem.  Most people I know have time before 3:30 not only for the Turkey Dinner itself, but also for the nap that is caused by the sleep-inducing qualities of the noon Lions game...

Dude just fly on Sunday. Don't risk missing the game. And I'd be willing to guarantee that kickoff will be at noon, like it always is, save for '06.

If both teams somehow go undefeated until then, maybe it gets moved to 3:30. But for now I'd bank on it being at noon.

The central tenant of life is that the color maize is simply defined as whatever color michigan is wearing. Similarly, the time of The Game is simply defined as whatever time Michigan vs. Ohio St. kicks off.
