    Question About Start Times For Alabama Games

    Quick question here: I know that last fall's Ole Miss game had something like an 815 kickoff. I'm debating going to that game this year. So two questions:

    1) How many other times have we kicked off a regular season SEC game at 815? (That's late)

    2) If you were a betting guy (or girl), what time would you wager we kick off that game this year?

    This is the rest of the SEC that day:

    Texas A/M at Arkansas
    Florida at Kentucky
    LSU at Georgia
    South Carolina at UCF
    UAB at Vanderbilt
    South Alabama at Tennessee

    OPEN DATE
    Auburn
    Mississippi State



    Thoughts? I know it's early, but I'm excited.

    Question About Start Times For Alabama Games

    We kicked off late in 2010 late with Ole Miss as well. If they are good next year it should be earlier.

    Still incredibly early to guess because there might be a chance of a non-SEC game getting in one of the ESPN slots. On face value, LSU/Georgia would look like the CBS game, but even that is a toss-up. It also has to do with how good Ole Miss is at that point.

    I'm going to predict that CBS takes LSU-Georgia and ESPN takes Alabama-Ole Miss in that 6:00 or 6:30 slot.

    This would be my guess too.

    That's what I'm thinking as well!

    Re: Question About Start Times For Alabama Games

    I went to this past season's Ole Miss game and living in South Georgia the best location to get a room was in Prattville. Keep in mind my body is on eastern time, so it was about 2am when we got to our room. I will sell my tickets to any other game that is scheduled for 8:15 or later. Games on the eastern side of the Mississippi River shouldn't start that late in my opinion.

    Nothing to be alarmed about. I wake up excited quite often. Sometimes I scare myself thinking I have been captured by a group of Indians and they have stuck me in a teepee...

    Too early in the season for the CBS DH date, and LSU-Bama will most likely be the one CBS Prime Time game. With that said, the UGA-LSU and Bama-Ole Miss games on that date are the most likely top two picks for CBS and ESPN.

    Y'all are affirming my hunches. My guess is UF-UK will be the 1121 game, LSU-UGA the 230, and us and the aTm games will be one at 6, one at 730.

    I'm guessing UF-UK for the JP game as well. I think every team has to be on there once and this is a good way for them to get Kentucky out of the way and have people actually watch.
