Game time an ND advantage?


Recommended Posts

The game will be a normal time for ND, a 3:30 body time start, just what they play every game at home.

 

While it is earlier than usual for a road game, they are used to it.

 

Meanwhile, it is a 12:30 local kick for ASU. It is their first home game starting before 6:30 all year and their first game anywhere played before 4:00 local time.

 

Now, maybe it won't make a difference, but a 12:30 crowd is always different than a night crowd and having your body clock on schedule is important as well.

Nope, I'm right on. One team hasn't played a single game at this time all year and probably hardly ever practices at that time due to the heat. That is an advantage, football players are creatures of habit.

 

You don't adjust to a time change in 1 night. It will feel like a 3:30 game for ND. It will feel like a 12:30 game to ASU. 1 team has played numerous times at that time, the other hasn't played at all.

Well thought out. It will feel like a 'normal' game to us and our body clocks. Let's see if we don't get off to a fast start.

it is a time adjustment for ND moreso because of time change flying west.

 

it is no time adjustment on the body for ASU.

It has nothing to do with the time change. One team is used to waking up early, getting in meals and playing a game at the scheduled time.

 

One team hasn't done it all year. It isn't a difficult concept.

 

Also, it is a "dry" heat, so though te temp is 87 late in the day, the "real feel" temp is only 85. Warm yes, but not 87 feels like in the humidity of the Midwest.

 

Worst case, time cancels out temp.
