After seeing a negative tweet about the 4 pm start, I’ve gotta say I love it. Gives me all day to accomplish what I need, then still have a free Saturday night. There is no reason for the OVC to play so late on Saturday nights since we don’t sniff a Saturday night TV game. What’s everyone’s thoughts?

I agree, love the Saturday afternoon games. I’ll be interested to see what our attendance looks like today.

I think I read somewhere about a 3 hour travel rule. If so I wonder if this is the reason. Wished they all started earlier than 730-800.

I'm a creature of habit so my first reaction is to stick with 7pm games. I do see the need for the travelling team though. I think the afternoon games could pay dividends for the OVC NCAA representative one of these years, those afternoon games on the first Thursday/Friday have to throw a person's routine/rhythm off.

So if the travel time to one school is over 3 hours, there has to be an afternoon game or is it an option? Thanks. I was thinking our EIU game was around the 7 pm start.

I don't know I just read that somewhere and don't really remember what it said, Smidge will weigh in on this maybe.

Of course if that was accurate then they’d play Thursday games early too, crowds be danged but I’m glad they don’t.

Welcome everyone to the STLRacer yearly post ranting about the women’s game start times! Looking forward to the afternoon racer game, and I turn on ESPN+ to see that it’s delayed, unsurprisingly. I then go check and find out that the women’s games ISN’T EVEN OVER!!! Dear lord, start the games earlier... why is this so complicated?? It’s just insane that games regularly start 30-40 minutes late because of piss poor scheduling. Rant over.

The women's game that just finished had some of the most inept refereeing I've even seen in a college game. I think the game would have been called better if they had just handed out striped shirts and whistles to the first three people to show up.

Lex Mayes got called for a technical for pointing at Macey Turley for her pass after hitting a shot, I guess the ref thought it was taunting (if this ref ever called a men's game, everyone would be ejected by halftime), and Coach Turner flipped out and got two T's and tossed from the game, so Morehead got 6 straight free throws and the ball back for no reason. Later in the game, Lex went to point again after making another shot and remembered what happened and lifted up her hands in the "not me" gesture.

I hope they straighten up the Ja Morant poster. Being crooked drives me crazy.

Great half from the Racers!

Interesting observation, Holiday's body language has been awful so far.

Has he even played? i honestly hadn't noticed.


Otherwise great half, a little sloppy at first with our passes especially but we finished strong.

It's great to see chico playing more, the offense seems to flow better with him at point.

I don't believe he played at all that half.

I had a conversation/argument about Holiday the other day. My buddy was trying to say he’s going to be like Juwan Long and be a defense minded player and score only when he has to.

My response was no. Haha... I have not seen anything on defense that has me thinking he will be a smothering D player. Tevin has been and will be our D specialist.

And for points, at this level we need 5 guys on the floor that are looking to score. I think the other night at Peay where he had a wide open shot and was looking to pass sealed his fate for tonight. 21 points in 27 games is not going to cut it.

Lol I’d have been pissed if he’d shot it.

I just can’t understand what happens to OVC refs at halftime... it’s unreal how time after time, games are called differently half to half. Just. Be. Consistent. If you are a crew that calls a game close, do that. If you are a crew that lets them play more, do that. Stop being both in one game!!! The players cannot play effectively when they don’t know how it will be called from half to half. This has nothing to do with which way the fouls are going and all to do with the OVC refs changing their style mid game, it’s horrible.
