That's the word on the street and the athletics page released an article. I enjoy one a year to throw a breakfast tailgate but we are not a noon-game type of crowd so it's a real bummer but we'll be there regardless.

Not my favorite time, but hey it's a home game on a Saturday, those are few and far between. This year's whole schedule sucked, why not keep piling on. Wouldn't be surprised if they announce that the BG game has been moved to Nov. 7 (election day) at 10 a.m.

That's funny, I skipped a wedding the day of that Wyoming game. Have not missed a home game since I think 2003. Missed the first quarter of a Friday night EMU game for a telescope viewing we had to do for intro to astronomy.

RE: 12:00 Noon Game for Akron on 10/21
I know the start times for UT home games don't impact me as much as the fans in NW Ohio and season ticket holders, but I had a blast with the noon start time on Saturday. I enjoy the morning tailgate and having the rest of your day open after 4 p.m.

That said, I completely understand that the local fan base is used to night games under the lights. What I think is most irritating is the game times not being announced until about 10 days prior to the game. When you have plans for homecoming, a noon start as opposed to 3:30 p.m. or 7 p.m. really throws a wrench into things. And people cannot reasonably be expected to hold off on booking plans for homecoming until 10 days before.
