Meh. Something about big ten people talking about the big ten bores me. I'd rather hear from outsiders talk about Michigan and the big ten. I also prefer seeing what's going on with the rest of the football world.

agree about too much conflict of interest. This is why i turn out when eSECpn blathers on about the SEC. This is also a reason i wish the arkansas game wasn't cancelled. It would've created interest and convo about us from other regions

also agree that i'd rather hear about or see an extra gameday at say ucla/a&m than freaking purdue/indiana

interesting, but i don't really go into the "conference pride" thing just because of a network, and i'm skeptical they can fill 90 mins on matchups espn's version didn't already cover. There's just not a lot worth talking about with an impending 30 point blowout

I suppose it's possible they could add to the more intriguing or mid-card matchups though

Are they going to the best B1G game or the game they're broadcasting?

There's a big difference between Michigan and Florida in Dallas or OSU/Texas or MSU/Oregon versus a random Rutgers/Buffalo early season matchup.

This could be good (even though I'll still watch Gameday) or this could be stupid as hell.

And what do they do when ESPN goes to a B1G campus for say Michigan/MSU or Michigan/OSU?

So many questions...

My guess is that they'll set up their studio near a different part of the stadium.  It's like the CFP where they had a location and ESPN had their own location.

And to answer his other question...
If the goal is to drive up TV viewership and not just to have a bunch of people stand around the studio to stare into the soul of Gerry DiNardo, they'd be smart to be at the big game of the day in the conference, regardless of which network airs the game. I'm pretty sure they'd get more eyeballs for the UM/OSU pre-game than they would for MSU/PSU.

I bet they'll never show OOC because the whole point of the show is to promote itself and the conference, unlike the real Gameday which will at least pay lip service to games they aren't broadcasting. This is the problem with conference owned networks. People think the partnership between espn and SEC is a conflict. Well, this will be really bad in that regard

1. Why run from 9:30-11:00AM?  One of the things I like about Gameday is going directly from the pregame show to kickoff.  

Unfortunately, I'd still watch Gameday unless their show is in Ann Arbor.  I am not waking up in the morning to watch five minutes about the Illinois-Purdue tilt.

The normal pre game and post game coverage was horrible. Why is this show going to be any better? Stanley Jackson, Denardo, mason - just awful awful. Only thing worse may be Calloway and Kanell. This new idea should suck. Cheers.

Their normal pregame show was dull and now it'll probably be slightly less dull except now it'll be in front of 50 bored fans live from West Lafayette. 


July 26th, 2016 at 8:17 PM ^

It's just not the same when you have Glen Mason opening a show with "You are looking live at Mustard's Last Stand in Evanston, Illinois.....which is a bit of a shame as the Northwestern-Illinois game is actually down in Champaign." 

However, I will give it a shot out of fairness. 


July 26th, 2016 at 8:24 PM ^ long as they keep Gerry DiNardo and Howard Griffith and Glen Mason off the show, and replace them with Desmond Howard and Kirk Herbstreit and Lee Corso, and then air the show on ESPN so that people will actually watch it.


July 26th, 2016 at 8:36 PM ^

This is nothing more than them trying to compete against Joe Tess(best in the business)/Finebaum and the rest of that SEC gameday crew. Delaney and BTN just wants to show that the tailgates in our conference are just as lively and passionate as those down south. Doubt the ratings are going to drastically change but I can't blame them for trying.

Revsine just doesn't do it for most. DiNardo is like able, but not what draws in fans. Griffith, the best of the bunch, won't be on show. I'd prefer an entirely new cast, with some pizazz.

Copying a successful formula should work.
Revsin is not terrible.
I like Pizzo better- less annoying
Dinardo is like a calmer smarter Corso

SEC network is better than BiG net work.
I don't care about sec but still better programming
Seems most of BiG shows are rerun football games

SBo: Belated sorry to hear about your dog. Lost one of mine earlier this year, Isabel (Izzie). She was 16, we rescued her when she was 6 so we got a good decade with her.

Just because this Gameday will be at B1G games and B1G network doesn't mean they have to talk about nothing but B1G, I'd think they may talk about other marquee matchups just without fellatiating the SEC.
