    Default ESPN Game Day?

    I know it has been discussed earlier this year, and at the risk of “jinxing” things, looking ahead to a potential ESPN game day for the PSU game. Nittany Lions would have to win their next two games (no gimmes- Mich and at MSU). Other options would be Iowa @ WI or LSU v Ala. Not sure if they “save” the Bama game day show for Auburn.

    Thoughts?

    It’s LSU vs Bama. Hands down.

    Needed LSU to lose yesterday, and maybe lose to Auburn. If they lose to Auburn donít discount PJ factor. They went to WMU.

    Agreed. More likely to get it on Thanksgiving weekend for the axe game if we keep winning. So as long as OSU-UM isnít to decide the East title. If Michigan beats Penn State next week odds are good that it will.

    I donít even want them here for Penn State. Beat PSU and them have em here for Iowa or Wisconsin.

    Why would a 2 loss [for now] Iowa be a GamedDay draw in cold weather?

    I can say with 100% certainty that there is no way Game Day comes to Minneapolis for the Iowa game this year.

    Have they been to any cold climate venues in November in the past?

    They may choose the warmth than cold

    Iowa wouldn't be the draw. Minnesota would be. Duh.

    I can see the Game Day guys sitting around, on camera, wondering why TCF Stadium is empty...

    I figured this was a distinct possibility right up until they named the Penn State game next week as the Gameday location. Kiss of death for us to host it for the same opponent and certainly a shot across the bow to remind us we arenít LSU / Bama.

    They were talking about the Gophers hosting Gameday for the Penn State game on the Solid Verbal podcast today and they were quite complimentary of MN and said it would be more interesting here than the tired old LSU/Alabama matchup.

    Well, at least after this we can change the emotion from embarrassment to anger at the fact MN has never hosted it. Up until now it has been embarrassing to consider the Gophers havenít played in a game that warrants a Gameday visit. After this we can at least we can say we deserved one.

    Yes it's been done before, but as of this week that game will be #2 vs #1. ESPN CAN'T turn that down, even if they lose TV coverage to CBS or something. At his point I'm convinced that our only hope is the Wisconsin game. I don't think we even need to be undefeated. If the winner of the game means that team faces OSU for the B1G championship I don't see why they wouldn't come.
