The Pac-12 debuts new 11 a.m. Pacific start time for football

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Our Pac-12 parents declare it's time to start taking our curfew more seriously and hope to cut back on late-night games.

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 fansboth those in attendance and those at homeand 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 fansboth in our stadiums and in the television audiencewill 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...
