About time we get a non-noon kickoff! My wife and I are tired of getting sunburned and being roasted!

Go Jackets!

Maybe the late start will give the D an edge? Or will it interfere with our DC’s early bedtime?

I hear ya McPants…I thought I had learned my sunburn lesson after the SCState game but apparently not…fried.

Let’s hope the result is better than the last time we scheduled UVA for homecoming (’08)…

I second that McPants!!!! I had about 5 bottles of water just so I wouldn’t get sick. If we can’t get a night game I’ll take this over the weather we had the last few home games!

Even better – how about a night game? You want to put more people in the seats in a big city? Do it in prime-time.

That’s good to hear. The weather on Saturday was brutal! That was the hottest game I have ever experienced at Grant Field. I saw at least 5 people that had to leave the game because of heat, with one being wheeled out on a gurney. Thank goodness I remembered to put on the sunscreen.

If the game time temp. will be over 90 degrees, the game should be a night game, please.

well if you can’t fill the stadium then your options might be limited in choosing game times. Also, they need to let the other team arrive during daylight in case somebody gets shot. Maybe “Bullet Proof Vest Night” would boost attendance…another L for teck

my boss didn’t go to tech so he isn’t anal and full of sh$t (he went to a real engineering school)…but I could get the techies who work for me to click faster

Television is the tail that wags the college football dog. They tell you when you are going to play…period, end of discussion. The prime time slots almost always go to nationally-ranked opponents. We are not nationally ranked and therefor must take what air time we can get.

I have an idea for the fans bases of both schools. Let’s burn Al Groh at the stake at halftime. You guys build the pyre, but let us light the gasoline, please…………….
