I haven't sat through more than 10 minutes of Gameday since college. That was 14 years ago.

I quit watching this bullshit show last year. They always have some assclown "celebrity guest" who doesn't know shit about football.

This past week they had Lyle Lovett on, who I immediately thought would be a terrible picker, but he knew more about football than the panel.

It's a good show to watch to get into the spirit of game day.

And another thing to remember, just because Gameday goes to a certain stadium doesn't mean they are even broadcasting that game. Like most SEC matchups, they get picked up by CBS, so ESPN doesn't even cover those games, so it would be no different if they didn't cover an FCS game. It's just the atmosphere that makes the show interesting, the actual game won't be on for hours, and might not even be on the same channel, so I'm not sure why people think that's a talking point, because it isn't.

Good for ESPN going to NDSU.

fify.

Now it's just an ESPN-fed, propaganda & drama-creating machine, just like every other show on ESPN, or television for that matter.

Doesn't seem to fall short of getting me pumped for a day of college football. From 8am to midnight, all college football.

I don't mind that they're going to NDSU. As others have said, there's a lack of big games this weekend, you can't just keep going to SEC venues every single week, and College Gameday likes to do a "feel-good/underdog" location once every year. Nothing at all wrong with this. Actually I'm interested to see what kind of following/support the Bison faithful have on Saturday morning.

They showed video of them rolling into town on sports center this morning. It looked like a parade.

I'm a little bored by Gameday these days, but I like crowds like that. 10x better than the A&M crowd, I mean they hissed instead of booed. Weird fawks.

I was just thinking his ESPN rant sounded a lot like is western imperialism rant.  Full rhetoric or no rhetoric with that one.

Downtown Fargo sort of reminds me of the Baby Face Nelson parade in Oh Brother Where Art Thou.
