My column: Noon kickoffs suck the fun out of Ohio State football games

One trend lately that I can’t stand is how many Ohio State regular season games are starting at noon. Over the past three seasons, at least half of Ohio State’s regular season games have started at noon. By comparison, from 2015-17, the Buckeyes had four games or less kickoff at noon in each of those three seasons.

The only people I am happy for when a noon start is announced is the media covering the game, since it will allow them to leave Ohio Stadium at a decent hour after covering the game. Night games are a nightmare for anyone covering the game, since they aren’t likely to finish their work until after midnight.
