What kind of a kickoff is 11:10 am (WVU-Marshall)?

Maybe to lessen the damage to the local couch population?

Thanks JimUSFSig. I look forward to your "Games to Watch" post every week. 

I also.

And a game that I am quite interested in is ECU and UNC ... this game could very well decide their state "champion" ... ECU played pretty well at VaTech and we really don't know what UNC is made of.

Hope UNC wins big.

Go BULLS !!!
