    TCU Game Time

    I know it's a ways out, but don't you think were due for a 11 O'clock kick for this one? When was last time we had 5 straight non 11 O'clock kick offs?

    Re: TCU Game Time

    West Virginia - Texas will probably be an ABC national game at 2:30 or 7. The other Big XII games that week are:

    Kansas at K-State

    Oklahoma @ Texas Tech

    Iowa State @ TCU

    We'd get picked up before the Kansas game, if we are both 4-0 we might get picked up before the Oklahoma-Tech game, but who knows.

    Re: TCU Game Time

    I think if TCU wins this week we will not be seeing an 11 o'clock kick. It's not a matter of luck we haven't yet, it's a matter of the quality of game in the eyes of the TV pickers. After the West Virginia vs Texas game on the 6th I think ISU vs TCU may be the second best game if TCU takes care of Virginia and is likely a top 15 team when the networks make their selection.

    Not to mention it's the first game for them in the Big 12 and could be against 2 undefeated teams if we get business taken care of against Tech (and they beat Houston) after the TV is lined up.

    Kstate vs KU is a bad game OU @ Tech is a potential better option, it depends on what happens this week.

    Re: TCU Game Time

    Except they won't know who is going to win ISU-Tech when they announce the games. My guess is that Oklahoma-Tech will be (wrongly) perceived as the safer bet to be an undefeated match-up and will get picked up before us.

    Lets shoot for a 2:30. I love me some 2:30 kickoff.

    Unless the networks take a 6-day pick, which it seems that this would be a good week to do so, considering the type of games going on.

    Yep, there's a good chance that either Oklahoma-Tech or ISU-TCU will be top 25 matchups. So it would make sense to wait and see which one it is.

    Not so fast my friend. TCU had their first conference game last weekend at KU. Of course, if a tree falls in the forest and nobody is around to hear it, does it make a sound? This would, however, be their Big 12 home opener.

    If it was home I'd agree, but if I'm going to be watching on TV I'd rather it be an early or late game, not in-between.

    Hopefully it's not a 6 or 7 pm kickoff. I'd like to be able to get back home to Austin before 2 am.

    K State vs KU is similar to Iowa-ISU game - not too many TV sets.
