    I would prefer a 3:30 game, but I doubt its on then because AU-AL or LSU-ATM game is probably gonna take the marquee. The only other games for conference teams are all dogs.

    There's no question the Iron Bowl will be on at 3:30 on CBS. That's almost guaranteed.

    Isn't the difference between a nooner and a night game for a matter of whether you stay somewhere the night before the game or the night after the game? Or are you not planning to stay the night somewhere regardless?

    That would also mean an 8+ hour drive before the game....does it really matter if you have to get up at 3AM to head to Gainesville or get home at 3AM? Why is a noon start "necessity" given that fact?
    People want a night game because it is a better atmosphere and the crowd is more engaged, especially students. It's also better for recruits. No travel plans should be disrupted....no game time has ever been announced so travel plans couldn't have been made yet.

    Typically noon kicks are the worst traffic on 75 because the game crowd is compressed into a smaller window. Everyone must get to Gville in the 9-11:00 range vs filtering in throughout the day.
    Generally traffic is lighter after a night game as well....more people spending the night and less non game traffic at a late hour.

    True, but all the tourists clog 75 (coming up from S. Florida) all damn day on Saturday.

    It's not just the tourists; that's when I do my free-time driving. Sometimes it's fun to just cruise up and down the highway and look for the newest billboards.

    I'm kind of surprised this fell to SEC Network. Remember when this was practically the game of the year in college football?! Glad it's not the 4pm game.

    Yeah, but that's not gonna change until we become the Jetsons and fly to the game....so kickoff time is not relevant in that regard, except that going home will be late enough that non game traffic will be much less
