    This has to mean the PAC 12 will be at 8 PM most weeks.

    This is such a stupid idea. Why would the take the time slot with the lowest number of viewers to air the best game?

    People who are watching at 8:00 are not going to watch at noon. They’re just going to watch whatever else is on at 8:00.

    Fox mainly airs Big 12 games so it’s still going to be a shitty game.

    Yep. There are maybe like 3 noon games a year that I care about so this will help spread things out a bit.

    Why Fox thinks its a good idea, I have no clue.

    Well no one watches the Fox night games against CBS or ABC right now, so they might actually get more viewers at noon.

    probably because it's an open slot where abc and sec don't have games (or at least good games) on

    Big 12 on Tbs at 6pm was fun in the early 2000s. Fox no matter what time is horrible on college games and forever has been.

    Good. Noon starts give me enough time to get drunk after a loss, pass out, and wake up in time to catch the prime time games.

    The only regular season noon game to crack the top 10 highest rated games in 2018 was Ohio State-Michigan, and that game would have had 1.5 times or better in prime time but it’s always a traditional noon start.

    Only three noon games had the highest rated game of the week last year, out of 15 weeks of games—the Texas/OU Red River game, OSU/Michigan, and OSU/Maryland which spiked incredibly as we almost got upset.

    It’s called prime time for a reason.

    And so this barely answers the question asked by Fox of: what if there are more compelling games like the anecdotes you cited not going up against the ESPN/ABC behemoth?

    Hard to understand why college football fans would be upset about more good games spread out so there aren’t 4 at the same time going on

    Think some of it has to do with their new pregame show, even though it’ll probably get killed by Gameday in the ratings

    Been better since they hired Tirico. Flutie is awful. There is a big push on twitter to get Quinn, and he is ok. NBC tries so hard to be neutral that they end up praising shit teams for the whole game. It's weird when you have your own national network. I may be overstating because I only watch replays from NBC, but that has been my opinion.

    I really like the female PbP announcers. They study a LOT. Unfortunately their voices can be grating.
