The Alabama vs South Carolina game. Just read it on twitter. That blows...
mesmerism! presidential assassinations! circuses on fire!
No big deal. We need to focus anyway.
Uninformative title. It posted from my iPhone before I could correct it. And I don't see an edit function to fix it.
They've covered Bama on gameday like 69 times this year.
Big - I think the team will be ready due to it being MSU, but I'm sure Gameday would want interviews with Rich and Denard.
Not that I really care, but I do think that Gameday's decision is pretty surprising. Big Rivarly game btw two undefeated and ranked teams, but whatever.
Especially since they still have Auburn on their schedule @ home.
Bama vs. S Carolina is a good game but they are not rivals like we are with MSU and they are not playing at the big house.
What a slap in the face to State! Looks like they'll be complaining some more about how they don't "get any respect."
That's because ESPN and the SEC are deeply in love.
Conspiracy theory - Seems pretty clear that there is an SEC-bias with ESPN. How in the world can that game be the featured game. ESPN just entered into a major broadcasting relationship with the SEC – they are going to do everything to promote them over the Big Ten.
It could be that the Big Ten Network is 49% owned by Fox.
Stop making this personal. Doesn't have anything to do with the game. Herbie calls the night game, which facilitates the need for gameday to be in the same area. That's the only reason.
Can't Herbie call the UofM game at night?
The Alabama game is on CBS, so he won't be calling that game. It's hard not to take it personally.
S. Carolina will get blown out FL style...
You're smoking something and whatever it is it is some potent shit.
So good I had to edit/delete my entire post.
I was forced to smoke something watching our "defense" yesterday, as I was stroking out.
They're holding out for UM vs. OSU. Denard vs Pryor. OSU to the MNC on the line.
He's already been cleared to play and practice this coming week. Crisis averted.
That game is in cbus this year...they could/should be in A2 this week....gotta be something with the espn/sec deal
That's at OSU, Gameday tries not to visit the same campus twice but they don't mind visiting the same team twice in a season. They could come to Ann Arbor for this game then still be at Columbus for UM-OSU.
Of course, if/when we beat MSU, Gameday might come to Ann Arbor the next week for the Iowa game. Iowa has a bye this week so we know that they'll be 4-1 coming into Ann Arbor. Unfortunately, they'll also have been preparing for us for 2 weeks- that'll also be a very tough game.
Surprised by that decision.
Putting my Michigan fandom aside this seems like a lateral move at best. Yesterday they talked about Dantonio's heart attack and everything that went along with it (blood clot), Denard is the Heisman front runner doing things that no player has ever done in college football history and both teams are undefeated which you can't say about any of the other games. This is a lame move by them.
It's cool, they're waiting until we're 6-0 and going against Iowa.
It's not cool! Literally how many times can you cover one school in half of a season? We get it. Alabama is good. But seriously ESPN try being a little more unbiased. When was the last time Gameday even visited Ann Arbor?
i think 07 ohio state? can anyone confirm?
While this game is huge in Big Ten country, ESPN and the nation as a whole is more interested in Ala/S. Car. Alabama is the defending champ with the reigning Heisman Trophy winner. Plus their facing the ol' ball coach and potentially his best USC team. We are still talking about the top team in the country versus a top 20 or top 15 team at their place.
I can wait for the Gameday crew to interview Denard in NYC before he's awarded the Heisman Trophy!
A few weeks back they had it in Boise for Oregon state over bama/ark because "game day is supposed to tell the story of whats happening that year in college football and that was boises chance to be on it, and besides Alabama has already been on game day." Then they pass on Denard and Dantonios stories and two teams ranked near the top 15 and in state to cover the SEC again. Sigh.
+1 great contribution!

They're probably waiting to do the UM - ND night game next year. It has to be the ABC night game so it will only make sense for them.
I also think they've never really been excited to return to A2 since the multiple visits for the '97 season.
Somehow, I don't think that Gameday almost certainly being at the ND game next year precludes them from coming to Ann Arbor this year.
I am actually a bit relieved. I haven't watched Gameday all year, because although it used to be a good show, it has "jumped the shark" and now sucks. But if they went to A2, I would feel compelled to actually watch it.
Because I live about a hour outside of Univ. of South Carolina I think I am going to go to the college gameday and am thinking I should do a poster board and/or fly the Michigan flag. Any suggestions on what to put on the posterboard?
Should have came to Ann Arbor.
Everyone said we sucked. Our QB can't throw and Rich Rod is gone right? Let everyone stay off the bandwagon and let's beat these clowns this week that is what matters.
All I care about is putting lil bro back in their place.
Meh, a little surprised but Gameday usually has a bit of SEC bias
I thought that game wasn't on ABC / ESPN though?
Maybe they didn't want to throw away 30 plus minutes of air time trying to educate viewers outside of Michigan on basics like:
--Michigan State is a FBS program
--Michigan State plays in the Big Ten
--Michigan State went to a Rose Bowl 3 decades ago.
More trouble than it's worth for them.
(I couldn't resist a little fun, but let's be real if this were against a national opponent also undefeated, they'd be coming to AA)
Anyone else annoyed that ESPN pops a boner everytime SEC teams meet?
Sorry to tell you, but outside of the state of Michigan, many could care less about our so-called "rivalry."
This really makes no sense at all.
ESPN and the clear bias of the SEC conference is something that makes me sick to my stomach. This year the SEC isn't anything to write home about. It's Bama and everyone else. They act like Cam Newton is better then Denard because he's in the SEC (which pisses me off beyond belief) Most of all though watching the Alabama and Florida game last night the broadcasters kept saying , "that's the type of play only an SEC athlete can make." Hell South Carolina could have had 3 losses and they probably still would have done this game.
what ESPN and Gameday does (or does not do)? Thirty days ago we were on our knees praying for a better record than any of the previous two years, with the hope of a better offense, FAR fewer turnovers, with a D that still has questions. Today we are 5-0 and have the #1 player in the country clearly out in front in the Heisman race, FAR fewer turnovers and high, high hopes for a really good bowl game.
What matters is that our guys are winning. Screw ESPN. If they cannot tell the difference between a good team (Bama) and America's most talked about and hottest team, it's their loss. It's been proven we don't need Gameday for us to win.
Go Blue! Beat little sister!
The reason why the WWL is not so fond of coming to AA to set up shop for Gameday anymore, is because the University was not jumping through hoops and catering to their every wish and demand the last couple of trips up, and it pisses them off.
how much ESPN must have regretted their decision to put UM IU on ESPNU. Exciting shootout game, Denard Heisman-ing everybody, etc etc....and they instead opt for shit like NU v Minny. ESPN isn't always that smart with their scheduling.
