BSU Gametimes Announced

Pete Lembo... no fan of noon games.

Leave it to the one morsel of news to trickle out of Muncie when I’m in the midst of the one week away from the interwebs and my home (Thanks for the stolen wireless internet unknown house closeby). The Cardinals have announced their gametimes for the slobberknockers of next fall, and it looks like Coach Lembo was successful in changing the kick times from just after church to at least mid-afternoon. Bully for you, Coach! That will leave plenty of time for the fans to stop by the local Muncie hotspots before their journey to the Scheu, you know, assuming Muncie ever has any of said hot spots. To the release…

Ball State, in conjunction with the Mid-American Conference, has announced its 2011 football game times and television schedule. The slate will include the Cardinals non-conference game vs. Indiana at Lucas Oil Stadium, while the MAC schedule features a possibility of two ESPNU games. In addition, Ball State will have three games air on ESPN3 and one contest on ESPN Plus.The complete Ball State 2011 schedule is as follows:
Sat. Sept. 3 INDIANA (7:00) – ESPN3 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis, Ind.
Sat. Sept. 10 at South Florida (TBA)
Sat. Sept. 17 BUFFALO * (7:00)
Sat. Sept. 24 ARMY (2:00) – ESPN3 — Family Weekend
Sat. Oct. 1 at Oklahoma (TBA)
Sat. Oct. 8 TEMPLE * (2:00) — Homecoming
Sat. Oct. 15 at Ohio * (3:30) – ESPN3/SportsTime Ohio
Sat. Oct. 22 CENTRAL MICHIGAN * (2:00)
Sat. Oct. 29 at Western Michigan * (TBA)
Sat. Nov. 5 at Eastern Michigan * (Noon) – ESPN Plus
Tues. Nov. 15 at Northern Illinois (7:00) * ESPNU
Fri. Nov. 25 TOLEDO * (TBA) — ESPNU Wildcard ^Senior Day
* Mid-American Conference Games
^ One of the MAC Games which could be selected for ESPNU
NOTE: Game Times are local time of home team

So not all the times, but at least most of them. The South Florida contest I’m waiting patiently on, since that one will be the 2011 OTP Road Show, along with the season-opener against That School In Bloomington. Color me happy that the noon games are slowly dying, as that made the tailgating experience, student attendance, and atmosphere significantly reduced. This is a step in the right direction for Lembo and the Cards, but there are still miles left to travel. Keep on eye on OTP over the next week or so as we begin to announce some exciting changes coming along, as well as the schedule for the 2011 preseason awesomeness. Go Cards!
