The topic of ESPN picking the Oregon-ASU game over Michigan-MSU has already been discussed, but it does seem like Eugene is pretty sleepy if you check the video above. Des even comments on the lack of energy on campus. Is ASU-Oregon even a rivalry?
I remember for UTL that GameDay on Friday was almost constantly mobbed by M fans from morning until they closed up shop late in the afternoon, and the area around it looked like a warzone.
So, I have 2 questions:
(1) Does it seem odd how quiet campus is behind Des?
(2) I've heard dark rumblings that "GameDay doesn't want to go back to East Lansing after [insert reason here]," but I believe Basketball Gameday visited at least once in 2010, so is there any merit to this rumor?
Not that it matters too much, but it would have been a nice profile boost to have another national game spotlighting the M resurgence.
Enjoy the game tomorrow and Go Blue!
