6-day window blues

C’mon, SEC — three nooners in a row?

That’s actually 11AM Auburn time.  Crap.

    If I were CBS, I would put Ark/Ole Miss at 8 and put Bama/TAMU and UGA/AUB on the 6-day window. I’m pretty confident we’ll get the noon slot–especially if Ole Miss wins.


    • There is at least a decent chance both ole miss and arkansas lose this weekend, so not sure why you would do that.

      If auburn beats LSU and all the above happens that ole miss arkansas game loses a lot of hype comparatively.

        Exactly. Once we beat Arkansas this week, the buzz around Ark/OleMiss will fade. The deep south’s oldest rivalry will be the marquee game

        That’s true. I just think that Auburn and TAMU are paper tigers at best. Ole Miss vs Ark will probably be more entertaining than the other two options.

    imagine if we weren’t the number 2 team in america and dominating defensively. They’d probably have us playing games Tuesday evening, or at 10;30pm on Fridays. Doesnt matter. All we have to do is keep kicking ass.

    Frickin #2 team in the country and we get that noon spot! I get Vanderbilt – they are just bad. But #8 Arkansas? And now Auburn, who is still in the top 25…

    Absolutely convinced that they are putting us up against that Noon Big 10 Spot for ratings…

    I just saw a story on my feed saying Auburn had fired their wide receivers coach. Harsin ain’t screwin’ around.

    With that said…

    If Auburn loses to LSU, guessing that it will not be a full stadium and not a very excited stadium, especially with a 11AM start.

      Clearly, there are a lot of moving parts to where we are getting slotted on the 9th. How close the Georgia/Arkansas game is, how close the Bama/Ole Miss game is, and the result of Auburn game. What is best for getting the 3:30 slot? I honestly don’t know. Auburn winning in Baton Rouge for the first time since 1999 coupled with Georgia and Bama blowouts?

    We beat Arkansas, and Bama beats Ole Missus, and we’ll be on at 3:30. Of course that’s two ifs, but they are both doable.

    This has to be deliberate by ESPN. They’re trying to take the wind out of Fox’s sails after Fox has made such a big deal about their noon game each week.

      Maryland at Ohio State really gets the public’s juices flowing, I’m sure.

      I think most folks are going to leave it on ESPN this Saturday instead of flipping over to… Michigan at Wisconsin (man, that coulda been a good game if Wisky had a QB)

      Remember the 2006? We came in unranked; Auburn was #5. Tra Battle picked off Brandon Cox about 20 times and we rolled before they could wake up, 37 – 15. That was an 11 AM CST kickoff and Auburn literally sleepwalked all afternoon. That is a brutal kickoff time for the home team. Auburn’s crowd is virtually dead these days anyway. If this happens, we’ll roll ’em by 40 points.

  10. Actually, the noon kickoff might help us. The third of three will make it ‘routine’ for the team.

    As for fans, pretty shitty.

    We’re going to be the national focus with the Gameday broadcast this Saturday. That’s free publicity for CBS if they have sense enough to jump on the hype train. Never fear. We’ll take care of business with arky and snag that 3:30 slot.

    Does a national audience really care about an arky-miss game? No. It’s the equivalent of CBS handing the 3:30 slot to Mickey and saying they aren’t using it that week.

    the european bulldog club likes a 12pm(or 3:30pm) est kickoff.
    it is brutal when you have to wait all saturday and then wake up in the early morning hours on Sunday to watch the dogs kick some ass and be very quiet in the house.

    I’m all for playing every road game at noon Eastern, especially in when we’re playing in the Central time zone. We want the opponents and their fans to be half asleep.

    Josh Brooks is doing NOTHING to protect Georgia. Nothing at all.

    Can anyone honestly tell me the difference between Brooks and McGarity at this point? I can’t tell.

    Don’t look now, but the following week is a CBS noon/3:30 DH and it’s homecoming. There’s a very good chance the Kentucky game is at noon.

    I don’t complain about the time slot, I am old enough to remember when the UGA game wasn’t on TV but maybe twice a year. Dang I’m old.

    The quality of the losses makes a difference. Not saying this is going to happen at all, but Ole Miss/Arkansas might be more attractive to CBS if they played good, close games against the #1 and #2 teams in the nation and lost than UGA/AU would if AU got curb-stomped by LSU. If UGA and Bama win convincingly it’s us at 3:30 no matter what happens in AU/LSU.

    I’m telling y’all, get used to it. ESPN wants to put the their first choice after CBS on the flagship network at noon. It’s definitely a ratings thing.

      Agreed…at least until ESPN takes over the entire contract. Then they’ll have the option to put the SEC in that 8 PM ABC game. That may end up happening more often than not, because the 3:30 window is split up regionally.

      At that point, the pecking order will be:

      8 PM on ABC if it’s the biggest game in the country that day
      12 PM on ESPN
      3:30 on ABC/ESPN
      7/7:45 on ESPN (probably not a SEC slot if we get the ABC game)
      Everything else

    Other than the inconvenience that it imposes, I don’t worry too much about the nooners with this bunch. They are focused and driven. I suspect that they could have a 6 AM kickoff and they would be ready. The defense is like a shark circling. Once they smell blood in the water they go into a frenzy no matter the time.

    I must be missing something. Seems like the network is doing us a favor by guaranteeing a flat auburn crowd at 11 am.

    It’s CFB’s way of hoping nobody sees us this allowing them to continue ignoring us.
