It was the 12:30 JP game in 2007.

I thought it was the 3:30 game on CBS, but I think you're correct that it was earlier in the day. Nice recollection!

regardless if it has been on at noon before if it goes on at noon this time it will show just how far we have fallen. it's another insult to the program if they put us on at noon.

That's one aspect of it but back in '07 there wasn't the same TV contract in place. Maybe that day LSU and UF played as well and got the 3:30 slot.

According to the schedule, UGA/Kentucky are playing at 7:00. Wouldn't that game have made more sense for the noon slot so you could get the big SEC west matchup AND the #1 team in the nation on in primetime?
40 point blowout.....haha

I know 100% that it was because I distinctly remember being irritated that the TSIO was going to be televised in the archaic Standard Def because at that point JP hadn't upgraded their broadcast to HD. What a joke.

The 3:30 CBS game that day was Florida @ Kentucky.

SC and Fla should be 3:30 CBS
TN and Bama should get Late game on ESPN when was the last time you seen the #1 team playing in the 12:00 time slot.

When was the last time you had two top 20 teams playing at noon either? Regardless of which game gets picked up, the noon game is going to seem kind of out of place. Not real sure why ESPN chose the UK/UGA game for primetime when it was so tailor-made for a noon kickoff. I really hope we don't get stuck playing at noon. It kills any sort of fun day of tailgating and Neyland will be DEAD if the game starts that early.

I don't think the 3:30 timeslot is even in consideration. While it's history says the TSIO is one of college football's biggest rivalries, it's not really a rivalry from a competitive standpoint right now. Now chance CBS chooses our game over a likely matchup of 2 top 5 teams. I think CBS took the extra week to see the outcome of the USCe/LSU matchup to see whether they need to go to Gainesville or College Station next week.

I hope we get them at night. We be loud and rowdy...maybe accidently throw a couple of their fans out of the stadium......from the top row of the upper deck. Ha ha ha... We used to do that in the mid-80's...they would be screaming "we got 14" all the way down to the pavement....good times!
