Larry Scott is at it again, throwing his weight around with the creation of an 11 a.m. Pacific start time for football games. This move was done with the sleep schedules of fans—both those in attendance and those at home—and the players, coaches, assistants, etc. in mind.
All games shown in the 11 a.m. time slot will be carried by Pac-12 Networks, the conference wrote in a press release that also announced an update on its push for NCAA reform and an expansion of its "student-athlete health initiative."
The new, morning broadcast window will take the place of an evening Pac-12 Networks window throughout the fall. The Pac-12 said the number of games shown in the earlier slot will be determined throughout the season as its other television partners, ESPN and Fox, pick their games and time slots.
"This is a positive step for Pac-12 fans across the Conference," Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said in the release. "There has been an adjustment over the last two years with our new television agreement, and we believe fans—both in our stadiums and in the television audience—will benefit."
As an east coaster I must say this is definitely better than staying up until 2 a.m. to watch Cal get blown out...
