I don't believe that's the debate.  The discussion is that having 2:30pm start times for these games is pretty ridiculous.  In the good old days before the SEC network these would have been 7pm kickoffs.


Standard policy for non-televised games in the olden days was late start times early in the season and afternoon start times for later in the season. 

This is probably Obama's fault.

This just in: September football games are hot.

Yep, apparently it's too hot for people to SIT and watch a football game.  ::)

I'd guarantee you the people from the bottom 40 miles of the state are not crying for any of you.

I thought they wouldn't drive past LR for a game.

There's nothing enjoyable about sitting in 100 degree heat in metal bleachers watching us drum some rent-a-win.

Yep.  Frank wanted early games later in the season so the bluehairs wouldn't have to drive after dark.

90 heat is much better  ;)  Fayetteville folks don't come to LR for games anymore anyway do they? It's only the UTEP game to worry about for a lot of ya'll.

How long ago are you talking about? ALL games in Fayetteville used to be day games because Razorback Stadium didn't have lights.

All games at the Polo Grounds were day games, too, once upon a time.

Post lights.

Didn't realize they still played at the Polo Grounds.

DWRRS has only had lights since 1990.

Right.  A lot of them don't want to regularly come 9 hours for a roundtrip to watch us in person, regardless if the game starts at 2 or 7 - yet you see all kinds of Hog paraphernalia in that portion of the state.  That's why people within a 3 hour drive ought to consider themselves fortunate to be able to watch us live regardless of the start time or how hot it is.

I certainly consider myself fortunate and I know I went to a lot of games in 100 degree heat even before the SECN start times.  I went to one in LR that started at 8:00 and it was 98 degrees at kickoff.

You guys realize somebody in the SEC has to have the 2:30 kickoff slot right?

I believe War Memorial had them much sooner and used to be we played roughly half our home games there.

While attending the U of A in 1963, I attended a night game in LR verses Texas with Tommy Nobis under the lights.  Oh, and of course, we lost. Oh and Fuck Texas.

Wasn't Baylor the first game in Fayetteville that got to use them?

I don't mind our time slots for the first three games this season. I like being able to catch 11am games at a tailgate and still get home in time to see the evening games.

But yeah, it'll probably be blazing hot.

Pretty sure you are talking about the 91 Baylor where it was sold, I almost lost a toe.   It was a 2:30 game and ABC brought in temp lights.  Big deal at the time.

I was at that game also.  I believe they rented the lights from Musco, which was a company in Muscatine, Iowa.  I sat in the Tyson suite, as a friend of mine was in the food business in Iowa and hooked us up.  Pretty boring game.  Billy Ray Smith Sr. was sitting on a couch behind us with his young girl friend.  Oh, and he and I finished off the bottle of scotch that was kept under the sink in the bathroom.
