I'd love to have it be Jessie Ventura. Just to have him ask Corso, "So who you going to pick Jack?"

Maybe a bit off topic but does anyone have any idea a schedule/venue at all?

Are they going between Williams and TCF? Im assuming on campus but wasnt sure where. And any idea a time frame? Like are we talking be there at 6am? The show starts at 8am but wasnt sure if anyone who maybe has been to one before have any idea?

I have to imagine this will be one of those things where literally everyone and their brother -- tailgaters or no -- will say "oh cool GameDay, let's go down there and check it out!".

Point being, if you actually want to get anywhere near the set, it you might have to get there plenty early.

As long as NBC doesn't object, Tony Dungy seems like a great fit.

Regarding Brock Lesnar, he lives in Canada now on a farm near his brother's farm near a tiny town that is pretty much in the middle of nowhere, a location that has to be murder to travel to and from when he appears with the WWE. He seems to have little interest in making any appearances barring those he's contractually obligated by the WWE to make, something a Gameday appearance would not be. I'm not sure if he was asked, but, if so, would be truly astonished if he said yes.

I haven't seen anyone mention esteemed Gopher-alum Yanni yet. Is he in play?

Other famous alum I haven't seen mentioned : Ron Perlman, Jessica Lange, Loni Anderson, Ernie Hudson, Mike Moh, James Hong

Who gets to pick the celeb picker? Who gets the final say?

1) someone said the guest pick appearance is sponsored by a private jet company that sends a private jet out to pick up the person, so that seems like a non-issue
2) I’ve posted that he was on the U campus helping the U wrestling team before. Not a public appearance exactly, but he might be able to get the U some nice publicity and help the school that way, so maybe.

For people saying Ric Flair, he was guest picker in Madison in 2016. You sure you want that similarity?

How about Walter Mondale!
How about Ted Mondale? Probably looking for another gravy train after the Minnesota Sports Facilities Authority position. Maybe he can make his prediction from a suite.
