I know a lot of teams who travel West to play games complain about the time change. I saw our team won't be leaving until Friday to prepare for the game the following night. If you noticed our game-time is 8:00pm EST; out in Tempe, AZ the gametime will be 5:00pm MST.
In the map above Mountain Standard is the small orange-colored time zone which runs on the same time as Pacific Standard (3 hours ahead of us EST people). However, based on my extremely limited knowledge of general geography, the 5 o'clock gametime in Arizona is going to look/feel like a 6 o'clock gametime according to people in Utah, most of Idaho, and western Montana.
I've been to Las Vegas before, and I know all about the "dry-heat" out in the desert. Once, I decided I wanted to see the famous Welcome to Las Vegas sign and decided it was no big deal to walk to it from my hotel, New York, New York, around lunch-time...
I took this picture...you might be able to see the hotel if you squint.
So yeah, it's hot as balls out there, but the difference between 12-noon and the atmospheric equivalent of 6pm is literally night & day...heh, get it?!?
I'm not worried about the heat or the time, I'm worried about us not showing up to play. Georgia should man-handle the Sun Devils, keyword SHOULD.
Any thoughts/concerns from you guys?
