College Gameday Open Thread
Know the cheerleader that popped up between Erin Andrews and David Pollack.
Been on yet?
Yes, but she's wearing clothes.
The Jerseys look terrible on the Cheerleaders ... I dont know what you saw
With skirts the perfect matching color that make it seem like they're wearing jerseys and nothing else. If that doesn't float your boat, we're sailing in different seas. This is the first time I've actually LIKED the jerseys.
I see the uniforms now. What's with those stripes on the arms...ugh
Anyone else want to punch Dr. Pepper Bald Sunglasses Douchebag yet?
I will be the first to sign on that. Also, what's with the country rap in the song? So lame.
Chris Folwer did that on twitter a few weeks back. Surprisingly, the majority reply was to keep it, if I remember correctly.
yea bring back that one dude from the early 2000's....I cant remember his name though. Also not sure why they keep b ooing Herbie....he has been one of the few guys who has been pro michigan most of the time. Granted he is from Ohio he did leave their because he finally realized their fans are absolutely out of their minds.
It used to be a twist on this song way back in the day.
Is there anywhere that we have a stream going of Gameday? My girlfriend doesn't have cable and bars aren't showing Gameday.
This is the link I'm watching right now.
What ARE they showing at 10 am??
Did ESPN hire cheerleaders and put them in Michigan uniforms, or are those our actual cheerleaders? They look good.
At work right now; recording it on my DVR for when I get home.
The crowd is pretty tame this morning.
Almost 10 hours away.
The most unrealistic in the Country? Others are just as or more demanding, but they're at more traditionally elite programs with better bases to be great.
Who is the shaved Dennis Miller looka like blown up head over Herbstreits shoulder?
At first glance I thought it was Bruce Campbell. I'm not sure if that's right, but I also planned to see if the mgoboard could help.
It's the roommate of the guy holding the sign.
and pump up that crowd? Awful except for the opening
of course they are dead...despite being in big ten+2 country espn is still an sec honk. Hard to get into the show when all the football talk is aimed south.
Love the "Fightin' Denard" sign. I might buy a shirt with that logo.
Yikes, the Game Day setting is depressing. It's so dark and gloomy. All you see in the background is a flagpole and a bunch of trees. No Michigan landmarks.
Not the best setting. I'm sure it's optimal for getting a crowd all in one place, but it's not a great setting to "sell" the University.
Quit nitpicking. Recruits dont pick a college based on Gameday backgrounds anyway.
BITCH BITCH BITCH
Marketing is everything! Just thinking like our fearless leader, Dave BRANDon.
Thinking like DB = rescheduling app state = DB, believe it or not, sometimes fucks up
I knoe, right? Where's the fireworks? Did you want the M cheerleaders to blow Corso on camera or something? God, now no one will ever want to attend U of M, ever...
Now that's good television. Although, I think Desmond deserves it more.
Also, Brian Kelly will never live down that explosion last week.
It looks like they're set up between Nat Sci and the Chem building, but the depth of field looks a little odd. Does anyone know exactly where the stage is?
Facing Rackham, Tower to the right behind them, and the Diag and flagpole way behind them in the higher shots. The fountain should be behind them somewhere, though it's probably off.
Thanks! It looks like they've made that area greener since I've been there last.
Or a later fall football game, all that green wouldn't be there. We don't get to see it much. And they're so high up, it gives you more of a "tree-eye" view, so it looks more "forested" than it does from the ground.
What is this about ?? havent we seen them already
Me confused. Probably just espn behind in the news again.
Sorry, I was only half paying attention when I caught the covered up mannequin and that the jerseys will have secrets. Did they say when the big reveal will be? Will they be showing it?
My thoughts also. What the hell does DB have up his sleeve.
Yeah - I'm wondering the same thing. They said the players don't even know about it. I don't know if I buy it.
that the M uniforms will have some 'surprises'. I hope the surprise is that the uniform is the traditional uniform as a big fuck you to adidas and ND.
They added a big Arby's logo and the wings on the helmet are now in the shape of curly fries.
Sell q bunch of jerseys, change them, then sell those too?
Well they did a little nudge to Desmond, might be something related to him.
Will wear #21 today. Take THAT ND.
WTF? Brian Kelly is the head coach of Notre Dame and he's surprised that cameras are on him?
Damn it, this game can't get here fast enough!
I just watched on youtube and clearly wasn't.
it would be funny if it were true but it's not.
On ESPN Gameday is kinda sad.
Ahhh, THIS is a football Saturday in Ann Arbor! A balmy September day (please, rain - hold off!), GameDay and chaos on the diag, fratboys attcking a car with sledghammers, and awesome throwback uniforms.
I love love LOVE these throwback cheerleader jerseys. I want a one - desperately. Anybody know if they're selling them anywhere? Anybody know a cheerleader? :)
I mean...they're jerseys...can't you get them anywhere? Do they look especially female cut to you?
Yes, embed fail apparently, (n00b) but you should be able to see the jersey on GameDay, right? (but who watches that?)
And, yes, they definitely look "female cut". Where's Tim Gunn when you need him?
It's that I bet they were great pics that was the disappointment. Keep posting.
They are just photos I took of the TV screen during GameDay, after all.
And I think I found the jersey at the Adidas tent near the stadium. (right after I got my pic taken with the Heisman trophy)
C'mon Erin. Lose the umbrella and get wet.
Was that a "Let's Go Irish" chant?
Time for Anthony Carter highlights....or more accurately, the play before it.
Tore through Kelly proper
With an assist from U. Meyer
"Michael Floyd, you're in the wrong AA"
The winning sign: "Michael Floyd, you're in the wrong AA".
You're in the
Damn! I wish I was there. It's going to be a loooong 9 3/4 hours, but well worth the wait.
The guy who made the Michael Floyd sign is my hero.
Buckeye helmet in his office, Woody Hayes pic behind him in the "film room". Meanwhile, his Florida pics were still on the floor. He clearly wants the job.
I also appreciate the irony of piling on Kelly for losing his cool while Hayes hangs prominently in his home office.
I liked it better when the gameday crew would set up where you could at least see the big house in the background somewhere...
Yeah, no kidding. With the huge block M on the new scoreboards, they could set up in Yspi and still get a view of the stadium. Oppoutunity missed.
Fowler mentioned off-the-air that this was a great location logistically to set up, that the crew really enjoyed having it there. Take it FWIW, but it was a phenomenal spot to accomodate a decent crowd.
Denard is like a created player on NCAA
-random Wisconsin player
He just guaranteed we'll meet them in the B10 Championship game one of the next two years. Maybe both with a jinx like that.
at that smug SOB Bielema saying "luckily we don't have to play them for 2 years..." god I want to punch that guy.
Did we really need a 5th guy?
Good point, he's just another talking head. 4 is enough.
Was saying that there was no SEC voice on Gameday so they needed some mope like Pollack
"Big Blue" on their screen in reference to Michigan. Commence complaints/get off my lawn rhetoric/rabblerabblerabble.
Front row of gameday...his presence makes this event 10x more special
Need a pic for my Lloyd Brady photoshop-desktop-background mural.
desmond howard's kids are so cute!
if you guys can talk about erin andrews and cheerleaders, i can talk about how cute desmond howard's damn kids are!
I'm thinking they could be some 2018 legacy recruits.
They take after dad.
I posted this in another thread, but I really hope his son took a dump in Herbie's lap.
He looked uncomfortable so close to a buckeye. He's a good boy.
Corso with the Michigan helmet and Heisman impression. Hilarious
Did I miss where they said what the "surprise" change would be on the Uni's? or did they just not say?
Not revealing until tonight. Probably will have some Desmond tribute on them.
I had to leave the hotel right before the predictions. Who predicted what for the Michigan game?
Desmond let his sons choose for him (of course they picked Michigan) and Lee honored Desmond with a winged helmet with the #21 on it.
i missed it! is there a link where i can watch the replay?
Much appreciated! Tailgating at pioneer...open for business! Go Blue!
A lot of the fans got burned out during the ESPNU portion and were a lot more mellow during the normal ESPN section. That and we wanted to hear what they had to say.
Also, ESPN said they were thinking about opening the show(the bit before the country rap meltdown) with the Pop Evil song so they asked the fans. We responded with a chorus of boos so they opened with The Victors instead. You're welcome.
Thank you for killing that epic PE fail!
I was booing as loud as anyone during the part when they asked about Pop Evil. Shit,s embarrasing man.
We are all very appreciative of your efforts. People in charge need to know how we feel about that pop evil song replacing The Victors.
Where's the "hero" moderation button?
Got into AA around 715 and my friends gf stopped at starbucks for a coffee, while my friend and i waited on the sidewalk. We notice a man walking toward us and as he approached we realized it was Coach Hoke, we each shook his hand and wished him luck and he continued on his way. It was kind of surreal to see him by himself in the middle of campus but he seemed very at home in AA. As for the actual gameday experience, it was awesome to see all those ppl turn out and support the team and the GD crew did an outstanding job as always
