A little more TV scheduling news to enjoy. The conference has announced kickoff times for all of the homecoming games this season. Per the ESPN Big Ten Blog, the Gophers will play two homecoming games. The first is at Iowa on 9/29 and the other is the U's homecoming game versus Northwestern on 10/13. Unfortunately, both will be 11am games. This sucks for me on a personal level as my intent was to drive from Madison to Iowa City the morning of the game. That's probably still in play but it just became more tiresome. As for our Homecoming, I'm saddened that last season's 7 games of 2:30 or later will not be repeated. Boo-urns.
