The article stated that Thompson hopes to have some MWC games in the 11:00 am timeslot. Being that TCU is the Eastern-most school in the conference and that the other eight schools are all in either the Mountain or Pacific Time Zones, the Frogs would be a prime candidate to host a nationally or regionally broadcast game on the network. BYU & Utah's "Holy War" as well as marquee non-conference home games such as Texas at Wyoming in 2009 would also be worthy of such coverage.
There was no mention as to whether or not this would or could affect the 2008 season, but I would say it is much more likely to start next fall, when the Frogs' most prominent conference home game is against Utah and three empty spaces still sit in their non-conference slate. As of now, there hasn't been anything signed so there's not a whole lot to get excited about. But this could be some great exposure for TCU and the other quality football programs in the MWC, and could be a cure to the recent rash of the conference's biggest games being relegated to attendance-killing Thursday nights.
