    MBB - 8 pm tipoffs

    Anyone know why CTN televised games are tipping off at 8 pm? I can understand if the games are televised on ESPN or ESPNU, but don't get it for CTN games. We have two little ones and 8 pm tips are a little too late taking them to the games. I just wonder if the late tips have any negative impact on attendance.

    Re: MBB - 8 pm tipoffs

    I think it's fine for weekend games but I don't like it at all for Wednesday night games. This is what Iowa fans had to deal with a few years ago and it really turned a lot of them away.

    In the end, if we are winning, they could play at midnight and people will show up.

    Re: MBB - 8 pm tipoffs

    We've passed on a couple of games now partially due to the later starts. My wife doesn't want to get home that late on a work night, and it's a bit late for my step-son on a school night, too. One hour does make a difference sometimes.

    With regard to why tonight is an 8pm tip, the ESPN/Big 12 exclusive TV window closes at 8pm, meaning that no Big 12 games not selected by ESPN (the Big 12 games that air locally on WOI and across the state on broadcast TV are produced by ESPN) can not be televised by non-Big 12 TV partners until the exclusive TV window closes.

    Nebraska is in the same boat today that ISU is in, their game with AtM was not selected by the Big 12 TV partners and instead of waiting until 8pm for a FS Midwest telecast, they opted to go without TV for today's game and will have an early afternoon tip.

    A full schedule of Big 12 games on TV as well as Big 10 and national games can be found on my blog, Iowa Tube Talk

    Re: MBB - 8 pm tipoffs

    Yeah I was wondering about the 8 p.m. tips too. My friends and I were deciding between coming up tonight or for next weekend's game...we preferred K-State because of the 12:45 start

    The next five Saturdays - 12:45, 3:00, 12:45, 12:45, 12:45.

    That good enough?

    Now there's an original idea, play the game without TV like they did in the old days at 1pm on a sat afternoon.

    I hate to say it (but i will) but nebraska has the right idea, forget about television and just play the game at a better more family friendly time.

    Crowd looked good on TV against Tech for the 8pm start and that was midweek.

    Its been a few months since people complained about game times being too late. Refreshing.

    The Sisters play at 2:00. You could do a doubleheader.

    Crowds at 8 this year are bigger than the crowds at any point last year.

    Its funny, maybe a year or two ago people were complaining about having to wake up early on saturdays to make it to the noon games (mostly students complaining).

    Leave the wife at home, and take the kid. That's what I do. 2, while not as good as 3, is a whole hell of a lot better than none.
