Last game I had 826 exposures which included tailgating, band, cheerleaders, etc. Of the game play on the field itselt, it was right at 500.
When I import them into LR, i have LR build standard previews. Going through them in the library module at full screen doesn't take too long.

Where I'm finding LR real slow, after the last few updates, is exporting. It's taking forever to export files to jpegs now.

I don't know if I'm the only one experiencing this.

Doc

How long is it taking to export to jpeg and how many are you exporting?

Doc, I think you should consider discontinuing using Auto ISO for night games and figure out the proper exposure for the home team stadium, including ISO. I say this because the lighting is constant and not changing, correct. You stated that you shoot for the college and I assume you shoot all of their home games. If this is the case, you should be able to establish the proper exposure for the stadium and every time you shoot there, you just use the same settings (look at your photos exif to get an idea of the ISOs). Once you get the proper setting, just set it and forget it. Ex. set your camera to f2.8, SS 1000, ISO, shoot one of the players and check the exposure on the back of the camera (i.e histogram). Auto ISO will change ISO just about every time you point your camera at any different part of a player. If you use LR, you can filter by exposure and see how many times ISO changed during the game. To make changing ISO easy for me, I have ISO on my Set button, which allows me to change it very quickly when needed without looking at the back of the camera or removing my hand from the camera (hold the set button and spin the main dial), but since I have the correct exposure, I haven't needed to make any changes. Btw, you can get away with SS 500-800 (I don't go below 800 though). Also, using the same exposure allows easier and faster editing because the exposure is the same for all shots (thinking batch processing).

Note: If there are some dark areas on the field (I assume the lighting is pretty decent since it's a college) you can quickly adjust ISO to compensate, but to be honest once you get the proper setting you should be good.

Just so you know, I am not making these statements without having done so myself. I am now shooting night games as the county is starting to install lighting at many of the HS team fields. I had to figure out the setting for this one particular field and now when I go, it's automatic; f2.8, SS800, ISO 8000 or f2.8, SS 10000, SS 1000-1250. Ironically, I asked another photographer what his settings were and they were the same. Below are some samples.

http://www.methodicali​mages.com/p1184877 (external link) (this game was f2.8, SS1250, ISO 10000 and 12800)
http://www.methodicali​mages.com/p589940474 (external link) (this game was f2.8, SS800, ISO 8000)

Just One Man's Opinion.

Methodical,
You should consider yourself lucky. Most fields and gymnasiums around Chicago suburbia have 1.5 - 2 stops of light difference on different parts of the field /gym during the same game. Pretty impossible to make all the setting changes to keep up with play. This was one of the primary drivers for the EC for auto ISO in Manual mode. Even more light variance occurs when bulbs are out in a bank etc.
Again, You are luck of you are getting under a 1/2 stop variation easily fixable in Post.

Nice one Robert, I do indeed like it and am mighty impressed with you for getting this shot of your nemesis the serpent, well done mate :)

Thanks Gus. Still nothing like your versions down under. I did get a Yellow Eyelash Viper but it will be appearing on the
Sony forum. It and the Fer de Lance were found on hikes so I took the lighter weight rig.
I did think the serpents here in CR would be larger but all that we've see have been tiny little things of a foot long or less--and
that just makes them more the devil to find.

When the stadium is completely dark I might try that. I'm open to suggestions and I'm definitely not an expert. One problem is taking quick shots of the sidelines and in the stands. The lighting there is definitely darker. If I want to get a quick shot of something happening in the stands, I may not have to time to play around with the ISO to get the exposure.

Now for the coliseum where McNeese plays basketball. They just changed to some great LED lighting before last season and the lighting is pretty consistent all over. I can go full manual there because I know the settings I can use and I also know the correct white balance.

Doc

One thing i do is turn safety shift on. Set up in normal AV mode, F2.8, ISO XXX(whatever is needed), then set my minimum SS to 1/1000. Safetys hift will up the ISO on the fly to make sure i never shoot below 1/1000. Works wonders.

Like yesterday i was set up at F2.8, ISO 1250 and getting a constant 1/2000, 1/1600 SS. But as it got darker the safety shift would kick up my ISO to make sure i never fell below 1/1000
