New, comments

In a shock of shocks, Purdue will be playing a lot of noon games.

Morgan Burke has a huge erection today and he has no idea why. The Big Ten Announced a load of kickoff times today and, you guessed it, we're playing a lot at high noon. Who knew that a 1-11 team would be the least attractive TV market in the conference. Here are all the conference times announced today, with Purdue highlighted:

Aug. 30

Appalachian State at Michigan, noon ET, ESPN2 
Indiana State at Indiana, noon ET, ESPN News 
Youngstown State at Illinois, noon ET, BTN 
Northern Iowa at Iowa, noon ET, BTN 
Western Michigan at Purdue, noon ET, ESPNU
Florida Atlantic at Nebraska, 3:30 p.m. ET, BTN 
California at Northwestern, 3:30 p.m. ET, ABC regional (ESPN2 in outer markets) 
James Madison at Maryland, 3:30 p.m. ET, BTN 

Sept. 6

Akron at Penn State, noon ET, ABC regional (ESPN or ESPN2 in outer markets)

Kent State at Ohio State, noon ET, ABC or ESPN or ESPN2 
Miami (Ohio) at Michigan, 3:30 p.m. ET, BTN

Finally, here are the other games we know:

September 13

vs. Notre Dame at Lucas Oil Stadium 7:30pm NBC

September 27

vs. Iowa Noon

October 18

at Minnesota Noon

I would also say that while the September 20 game vs. Southern Illinois is still TBA I would be shocked if it were anything other than a noon kickoff. At least everyone can get home before dark just like Morgan wants!
