Early season start times announced

The ACC and BC released the start times for the first few weeks of the season. Some were already known and some were a surprise.

The first game is a bit out of BC's control. We will play Northern Illinois on a Friday night at 9:30 PM on CBS Sports. That is a little late for our players and our fans on the east coast. There's not much BC could do though. As the home team, Northern Illinois' TV partner picks the start time.

The second game is a 1 PM start at home vs Wake. The 1 PM games are good for tailgaters, but frustrating for a program perspective. This game will not be on real TV. We can all stream it via ACC/ESPN, but that is not the same.

The Notre Dame game will be at noon. That is also somewhat surprising. These days the Irish rarely play the noon game. The have a good west coast following and the early start makes it harder for those fans. I still expect it to be BC's highest rated Saturday game of the season.

The only game that might get a better rating is the prime time game against Florida State on a Friday night.

All the other start times will be announced during the season once our TV partners know which matchups are actually going to be good.

I watched a few minutes of the women's Lax semi-final and it was maddening how good the quality the video and audio were compared to every single Football game I've ever watched on ESPN3/Watch ESPN/AggieVision. The streaming Saturday college football games are fine in theory but the quality is never good enough because there are so many games on (vs a barely watched event with no competition in late May.

Hopefully Wake Forest is the only time this year that we're on a streaming service only.

On a different note - today is Brad Bates' last day on the job. I want to thank Brad for teaching us about student development and that winning is important because "it is developmentally meaningful". I never would have guessed. In fact, after every blow out loss or WTF loss while he was AD - I took solace in the fact that the loss was, at worst, not developmentally meaningful and I found peace.

Bye, bye, Bradley. Don't let the door hit you in the ass.
