No Respect

Well the good news about the Pitt / Cincinnati game is that it will be a national telecast on ABC. The bad news is that it's a noon kickoff.

I guess beggars can't be choosers. The other major game that weekend is Florida Vs. Alabama, but that gets a 4:00 p.m. start. It would have been nice for this to be a night game, but heck, in December, that might not be so fun after all.

Tickets are still available and it wouldn't surprise me all that much if this wasn't a sellout (though I expect it will be). Even if Pitt gets past WVU next weekend, it's still a noon kickoff against an opponent many casual fans aren't really all that excited about - even as a top five team. Oh yeah, and it will probably be in the neighborhood of about 30 degrees outside. Fun.

Still, if Pitt can't manage to sell THIS game out, it would be disappointing.
