I get it. It’s part of why I don’t buy season tickets - I know going in that there will be at least 2 games where it’s suffocatingly hot and absolutely no fun to attend. I just don’t have a ton of sympathy for people that pay for their season tickets knowing there are always hot as fuck games in September that will be miserable to attend and then they get mad when it’s hot as fuck and the game starts at noon. Of course it’s miserably hot. Of course I wouldn’t take a kid to the game. The complaints about it just seem excessive at this point. But idk. Maybe I’m just an insensitive asshole.

I do though lol at the whiners who blame noon games on people leaving early. That shit happens no matter the time, unless it’s a great opponent.

^^guess I’m just being an asshole about it and the fact that Justin agrees with me probably confirms that

I just don’t really get it. Who are we mad at? The athletic department for scheduling weaker opponent in the opening weeks? The TV networks? Do we just blindly cuss John Swofford because he’s clearly out to get us? I completely understand why people hate the noon kicks. I guess I just don’t really get why anybody’s surprised about noon kicks.

Alabama not happy w/11 a.m. CT kickoff: “We are disappointed our game against Southern Miss has been selected as a daytime kickoff at home. We realize we’ve played more non-conference day games at home in September than any other SEC team since 2014”"


Lol just saw this on twitter. Guess State fans aren’t the only ones

3:30pm kickoff games aren't really much different weather-wise. It's just hot as fuck during tailgating and kickoff and then starts to cool down, whereas noon games are nice for tailgating and get hot during the game.

^^^ my only preference for 3:30 over 12:00 is getting to sleep in. I think the point about tailgating temps is true but only applies to the first hour or so, by 10 it's hot.

Yeah, weather for 3:30 games isn't much different. I prefer the 3:30 time slot over noon because my kids play soccer and I'm on the soccer fields until 11:30 in Youngsville. That's a 'me' problem though. If it wasn't for that, I'd be out there as close to 8 as possible to tailgate.

It could be sunny and 70 degrees with 0% humidity for a noon game and people would still be annoyed by it and the stands would still be half empty at the start of the 3rd quarter.

It's not the heat that people hate about noon games, it's the overall negative effect on tailgating and Saturday. People don't want to get up early, they don't want to start drinking at 8am every home game, and they don't want to always have to cook/eat breakfast at the tailgate. The crowd in the 3rd quarter isn't because it's 90 degrees, it's because the concessions are weak and the beer lines/prices aren't worth it when you can get a pass to go back and eat/drink whatever your already brought.

The only people really leaving games early because of the sun/heat are people with small children and older folks, and that isn't going to change whether the game is at 11, 12, or 3:30. If you have a night game you'll still have those same people leaving early.

Also the entire student section leaves by halftime and doesn't come back. Pretty much every game now, regardless of opponent/kickoff time.

Make one instead of complaining. It's not that hard.

We seem to have a weak pass rush this year which is different than what we have come to expect the last few years. I guess too many young guys???

Yeah that happens when you routinely only rush 3 and when you do rush more than 3, the 4th is a linebacker giving up 75 pounds to an offensive tackle.

YouTube tv has been good for me. You can just do a 7 day free trial and cancel if you only need it for the weekend

The difference being that by mid-late September the angle of the sun is much lower, and thus less intense at 330pm, than it would be at noon (peak intensity).

I hate noon games for a variety of reasons, but most have already been stated. And IMO Doeren can cry about the empty stands after halftime, after we start winning more and play less (none?) noon games.

Lol at the ultimatum...DD can complain about the pass outs once we have 0 noon games...which is a thing he totally has control over

Also, “after we start winning more”? He’s won back to back 9 win seasons, back to back winning records in the acc...hadn’t been done in 25+ years at State . I’m not saying DD is a HOFer, but he’s winning games at a better clip than most of his predecessors

Didn't realize Stephen Griffin was ALSO out Saturday. Obviously there are some structural issues with the D, but hopefully if we get all 4 (or 3 depending how you classify Bole) starters back, then execution will improve.

On how long it takes for Matthew McKay to develop trust with receivers

Quote :
"He threw a really good ball to Emeka in the game, and he ended up about 6 inches out of bounds on the catch. So, I think that trust is already there, we’ve just got to get the timing of those things. He did make a nice back-shoulder throw and catch in our opener to Emeka. I think that going with Devin [Carter], that’s what we’ve got to get so we’ve got it going on both sides of the field."


This guy is so out of touch.
