    Why are we the early game when we are the only team in our s16 pod from the west coast, when most of us will still be at work?!

    East bracket 2/3 play first

    Playing a team from est zone at 7pst is a reward...that gives them a starting time of 10est

    Isn't it standard/beneficial for the higher ranked team to play earlier so if they were to win, they would have that extra time to prep etc? I mean its not much difference between 4:09 pst and 4:29 pst.

    If you're GU though, would you rather be playing at 7P west coast time? Not only are you playing at your typical start time, but your opponent is playing at 10P after traveling 3 time zones?

    But we all know that the tournament is all about the $$$

    Meh...2.5 hours extra "rest" for 20 year olds for a game 48 hours later, dont think it makes any difference at all...this is about maximizing fan base viewership and having a WC team start the S16, that is stationed in their teams timezone, before the work day is over for a majority of their fans...poor planning from a viewership pov

    It does seem as if they are going out of their way to make it off times. Virginia-Oregon is the late game, in Louisville while Gonzaga-FSU is the early game in Anaheim.

    They could/should have flipped those for viewers in the appropriate time zones and to have given the eastern time zone team the three hour later start rather than at their regular time with the Zags three hours early.
    Hoping you have a sense of humor too!

    I mean WVU - Gonzaga was early tip too at 7:10 ET. Florida State-GU last year was late tip ... we’ve seen it all

    We were given the east coast prime time game, and on the premier network. It's about advertising dollars. I think CBS gets first dibs and dictates the start time.

    I have always felt it is an advantage to play the first game during the sweet 16 round because if you win, you send your guys back to the hotel to rest and recuperate, and have two assistants scout the next game, knowing that they will definitely be playing one of the two teams. Also, it is quite possible that CBS could give Gonzaga the first game on Saturday. Again, it just allows for more rest, recuperation and scouting time.

    The winner of this Michigan/Texas Tech could be quite beat up. I know people like Tony Bennett, but these are the two best defensive teams in the nation. That have everything that UVA has, but with more athleticism and shot blocking ability than the Cavaliers do. Culver is a major talent, and Zavier Simpson one of the best on ball defenders college ball has seen in ages. It might be to GU's advantage to play the first game on Saturday (just like in 2017) if they get past FSU.

    PLEASE no Len Elmore at the west regional. He's a curse.

    Selfishly, I like not having to wait. If we win, I watch every game.

    The moment we lose, my NCAA tournament is done. Last thing I want to see is more basketball.

    A 7:09 EST start time means that I don't have to stay up past midnight or 1 AM to watch a Zags game like the rest of the season. Usually it's even too late to enjoy a beer or two while watching the game. The time shift to east coast primetime is one of the best things about March Madness. Everyone in PST doesn't know how good they have it the rest of the year. In fact I'd argue that a 4PM start is much, much preferable to 11PM because at the worst you can just DVR it until work is over and watch the game sans commercials.

    No Len Elmore is a good thing. I'm also glad Steve Lavin is not calling the game as he is terrible. I'd also boot Seth Davis.

    I know it seems like a punishment for GU to have the earlier game... but look at it from a different perspective. It is on CBS... prime time on the east and central time zones. It is their way of saying... this is the game that the country wants to see.

    Ditto. Won't watch a single game until the Championship.

    Then I can't help but tune it, plus its a Monday night -- nothing better to do...

    Before then, too much heartbreak, "what ifs", "we should be there beating that team", etc

    I’m whistling Dixie too. Also gives talking heads more time to talk about the Zags. The Jimmy Kimmel show is taped starting at 4:30 Mon-Thurs .... Maybe he’ll have Guillermo broadcasting live from the game????
