"The best college football conversation involving ESPN staffers last season failed to make the network’s airwaves. It took place last January inside a first floor conference room at The Langham Hotel in Pasadena on the day before the national championship game. Sitting around a conference table were a dozen boldfaced names in the sport, including Alabama coach Nick Saban, former Floridaquarterback Tim Tebow, and College GameDay regulars Lee Corso, Chris Fowler, Kirk Herbstreit, Desmond Howard and David Pollack. With ESPN’s College GameDay coordinating producer Lee Fitting serving in the role of James Lipton, the group discussed Florida State and Auburn for a solid two hours with no breaks. “I’ve been producing GameDay for 10 years and it was the best football conversation I have ever been around,” Fitting said."

He will not be afforded uninterrupted two-hour blocs, given that ESPN isn’t PBS, but as the coordinating producer of the network’s most successful studio production, Fitting has a lot of freedom and power on the direction of his show.

Well you know you could always have these great discussions off air, edit them, and put it on the air before the game you know. Oh wait we need more meaningless live crowd shots of students holding up signs, and know nothing celebrities to come on air and give us their picks. Seriously, the show could be so much better but ESPN chooses to make it dumbed down with the wise cracks between the guys and Corso doing the mascot thing.

But nah, ESPN thinks we want this ......

Fitting says the show is looking to add a full-time DJ to keep the crowds (mostly of college students) entertained. The DJ will occasionally appear on air, and the hope is to hire a woman in the role.
