    In case anyone is interested, game time has been set for 4pm.

    A few of us will be there. Not many.

    Well, last year they moved the stAte game to 11 for the outstanding and widely viewed coverage of the American Sports Network, so this is okay. It's freaking ESPN3 though. You can show any game, any time, any where. Can't we just leave these games alone and play them at the times chosen by the university?

    This is what kills me. It's one thing to move a game for TV, but now it seems like we're moving games for ESPN 3. WTF??????? Time for this conference to take control of its schedule again.

    With that said, homecoming games are usually at 4pm anyway. Should work out fine.

    I wish someone would answer this question. Why in the heck do they have to adjust the time of the game for streaming video?

    If UL ever wants to be the Cinderella of football, Homecoming needs to finish at midnight.

    Ok maybe not but I don't get this fascination with finishing homecoming early. It implies you have more important things to do.

    I actually always liked the 4 pm game times for homecoming, especially after the time changed and the weather is cooler. I wouldn't mind all games changed to that time to be honest but the early ones would be too bloody hot for those people in the East stands.

    Homecoming is at 4 pm this Saturday. This is for the Saturday after Thanksgiving.

    And let's get away from 4 pm homecoming games. Let's play under the lights every chance we get.

    4 PM games just kills tailgating. That's what we go to UL games for anyway, unless you think of some other reason that I don't know of, "at this point in time". Hopefully next year there will be another reason besides tailgating......

    I still stick to this reasoning with only tailgaters in mind......"4 PM games just kills tailgating". Unless you want to close tent at 3 PM and reopen at 7-7:30 PM.......

    No it doesn't. We get out there around 9 AM on most days and by the time 4 rolls around, many can't walk very well and I'm ready to get into the game. Just move your Roosta dance up an hour or so and all is good.

    11 am games render tailgating nonexistent and make for a long day. Especially if you lose. 4 pm is better, but some consistency with this conference would help. ESP-N has them by the stones. "You want us to put you on TV and broadcast your future conference championship? Yeah, you'll play whenever we tell you to play." Even if it destroys attendance. Actually, I'd like to see the number from the past few years since they've started announcing game times 2 weeks before the actual game.

    Well we have to agree to disagree......Get there at 9 AM, set up and start cooking about 10:30 if lucky. Finish cooking and eating at 12:30 PM. Pickup and ready for 3:30.......that's not tailgating IMO.....No 4 PM games if you are a tailgater. Now if you are there just to drink from 9 Am to 3:30 PM it will work.

    7pm games prior to the time change. 6pm games after the time change. No exceptions. Purchase our own 4K UHD production equipment and control our own destiny.

    I've froze my keister too many times in those late season home games with late kickoffs.

    Also, it is great to go to a nice restaurant after Homecoming. LOTS of people do this.

    We get a lot of old friends in town just for Homecoming, and we like to go to Alesi's after the game.

    It's a nice tradition.
