Baylor vs Utah at 11am really sucks…gonna be 106 degrees at half. I'm guessing the crowd for Long Island at 11am will be 12k after half.

11:00 kick vs Utah is a huge letdown, heat and early kick will not create the desired home field advantage.

The hell it won't. Utah ain't experienced nothing like the heat they'll see that day.
