2011 "Why I Hate ESPN Gameday" Thread
« on: August 05, 2011, 12:16:12 PM »
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.

ND and Michigan are playing at night for the first time and both are wearing old school throwbacks...
It's kind of a big deal to them.

There are more things in this sport to be pissed about that actually matter.

Like I give a frick how big a deal it is to them? They're still irrelevant and I can still enjoy observing that and disliking gameday for it. And this is just the start anyway.

And I'm perfectly capable of being pissed at this and many other things at the same time, especially when being pissed constitutes a simple message board post. Stop Lashing the thread up.  :stache:

I'm sort of a glass half full guy, and there might be an outside shot at 3 games IF the other team holds up their end. 

ATM in Dallas, if we beat bammer & aTm holds form.  We should be in the top 10 & so should they.

USC-E in Fayetteville -  same scenario

aMn in the Rock - same scenario

I agree that we will be a long shot for a host site, but it is mathematically not un-possible. 

Here's hoping we are undefeated.  I 2 am embracing the high expectations.  :beer:

Gameday did the Alabama/PSU game last year so I can see why they would skip that one.  That UGA/USC-E is actually a pretty big game, though.  Winner has the inside track on the SEC East spot in the SECCG.
Let's get rid of that dogbone-shaped logo of ours, bring back the old school 'A' with the Hog running through it, and start kicking people's asses again.

It doesn't really matter...if Arkansas takes care of business they'll be talking about us (actually they'll be talking about the shock of Alabama and ATM losing to us). By Week 9 they'll actually give us a shot at a BCS game. Wash, Rinse, Repeat...

I am kinda excited about Notre Dame vs. Michigan in throw back uniforms in a night game. Who cares how irrelevant and completely non-deserving it is to put either of those programs in the spotlight. It's early in the season and great games that early are hard to find and they can't be in an SEC city every week so there you go.

Oh and frick Big N Rich and that Cowboy Troy homo.

And so it was that later
As the miller told his tale
That her face, at first just ghostly,
Turned a whiter shade of pale

Well goddamn. I love Gameday. I remember what Sarurdays were like before that program. I don't need validation of them showing up. I don't give a frick. I like the show.
The iconic 'alien' is to us what we are to apes: small, pale, big headed, and with unfathomable technology. We even abduct them for medical experiments. Mind blown.
