We all know how it's going to go. Arkansas has a great team this year, we will be top 15 all year and probably top 10 most of the year. Yet, we don't sell ads like the Michigans and Texases of the world (not to mention our home schedule is mostly weak) so we probably won't host Gameday this year. There will be plenty of reasons to hate Gameday all year, especially with their half-hearted research that goes into their Saturday morning game previews.
For gripe #1, I present the first 3 host sites, courtesy of CFBLive twitter.
1st 3 sites for @CollegeGameDay selected. Cowboys Stadium (OR vs LSU), Michigan (vs ND) & FSU (vs No.1 OU) » http://t.co/4Syb0US
I understand the first and third weeks. You've got top 5 teams in interconference games with other top teams.
But Michigan vs. Notre Dame? Really? Are there two more overrated while equally irrelevant programs right now?
*subject line updated for clarity. I do not hate the actual day the games are on...I am dying for that gameday to get here.
