I would still prefer 6pm, since the only other ACC game


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 7:50 PM
 

later than 1pm is Duke and NC Central I think it would give the ACC at least one prime time or semi-prime time game and Raycom should pick it up for the ACC.


Outstanding job, TDP. You cannot beat a 3:30 kick-off.*******

null


You can beat it, 4, 430, 5, 530, 6, 630, 7, 730, 8 oclock

would be better, and all the increments in between those.

But 330 is way better than 1.


Well, honestly that's arguable. If there is an opportunity

for TV I would think 3:30 would be a better slot. Regardless of TV, though, there are plenty of fans who prefer a day game to a night game. 3:30 is a great compromise.

Hey Vegas.....does this impact what you were hearing about


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 4:18 PM
 

TV possibly picking it up still?


No idea. I had heard it was under consideration for a time


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 4:22 PM
 

change and being picked up on television. Clearly, the time change part was correct. Don't know if the TV part was or not. 3:30 certainly gives more options.

Keep chasing those windmills, Steve!

now that's more like it why can't it be on espn2? i hate not being able to see this game. with a team like TCU you'd think it would be nationaly televised..


Are most of TCU's games "nationally televised" against


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 4:26 PM
 

non-ranked teams? I live in VA and would love to see the game too, but be a little bit real!

Yes, every single TCU game is on some form of National TV except for Clemson and our home opener against Texas State.

I look forward to a good game against a very good and under-rated Clemson team. I just wish the SOB's at ESPN would recognize what a good matchup this is.


National TV? If that's the case, then this makes NO sense!


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 4:44 PM
 

I can understand all TCU games being on some regional telecasts, especially in Texas, but "national" tv...I just haven't been paying attention. But, I will now!

Good luck to you guys!

It's because we have our own TV deal and our own conference network on DirecTV. This kind of stuff is why our conference left ESPN. Clemson vs. TCU will be one of the best matchups on that day.

I think we'll have our hands full with your team. I was rooting for you to beat GaTech. Good luck this weekend.

There's pros and cons to the TCU/Mountain West Conference TV contract. Yes, every one of our games is televised, so we get to see them, but they are on channels that average Joe fan does not watch (Versus, CBS College, and The Mountain). It hurts our national appeal (we're not the nation's media darling that Boise is), but at least as fans, we get to see every game.

Personally, I'd rather have our situation where we get to see every game, but there is definitely a downside.

The sad thing is that he didn't realize that 3:30 was the happy medium in the first place.

very good!!!! not as good as 7:00 or 8:00 but much better than 1:00PM... still don`t see why no T/V

Maybe we can offer to pay the TV networks to be on them instead of them paying us. That would probably work. Maybe up your IPTAY donation to do that.


Way to go, TDP!***

Excuse me if I take most of the credit for this move, but what I did was nothing short of fabulous.


Re: Clemson vs. TCU Game Moved to 3:30 PM


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 8:51 PM
 

Don't care about the time, IT'S NOT ON TV! For those of us not physically able to go to the game (partial knee replcmnt 3 weeks ago) would like to watch this game dam@ it!

GO TIGERS!!!


Thank you Jebus!***

There's something in these hills.


This only helps our team. Good move TDP! Prefer 7pm, but


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 6:20 PM
 

3:30 will work! 12 and 1 pm stink, and the fans/team come out flat. This is a good move!


Re: This only helps our team. Good move TDP! Prefer 7pm, but


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 7:29 PM
 

This will help the Texas recruiting base if they get the game on 360.

I voiced my opinion earlier in response to the blog, but really 3:30 is the best compromise. Not too early, and not too late. Still a stretch to get there for those of us driving 4 hours and allowing for some good tailgating, but very doable.

just need to find some tickets! what up!***

Why on earth not on national TV?????***

That could change, depending on what happens this weekend. The GT game was a killer for us, and the sad part is we got hosed. Hosed by the refs on the phantom hold and hosed on the fake punt with a fake field goal/punt straight to their returner, and a fake punt to us with no coverage. Duh!!!

Should have moved it to noon......


Posted: Sep 16, 2009 8:41 PM
 

Would have worked much better for TCU and their 2 hr. jet lag. Much prefer to have the teams kick-off at noon or even 11:00 in the morning. To heck with the tailgating, to heck with the heat. All I want is a win.

One hour jet lag, not two

Wow. You aholes really are full of shot.

Does TDP realize how small a percentage of fans post on 'tard net??


Very good tigernet. Now get them to put us on freakin t.v.!!


Posted: Sep 17, 2009 3:08 AM
 

THIS GaME NEEDS TO BE ON T.V.!


Means not getting home until 3 AM from the game for us in AL***

Is Charter now carrying ESPN360 on the internet (Anderson)?


Posted: Sep 17, 2009 2:30 PM
 

I tried last year and it said our local cable provider (Charter) didn't carry it.
