Gameday Off To Linebacker U

Monday, September 21, 2009

For the third time in five years, ESPN will send it's Gameday crew to Penn State. The trio will post up at Beaver Stadium before the Iowa-PSU game, and the fun will get underway at 10am, yet again....

ESPN's College GameDay will travel to Penn State Saturday for the No. 5 Nittany Lions game against Iowa at 8 p.m. at Beaver Stadium.

Host Chris Fowler and analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard will broadcast from Penn State prior to the Big Ten opener for both teams. Penn State will seek redemption from the Hawkeyes, who upset the Lions late in the season last year to spoil their national championship hopes.

The program will air from 10 a.m. — noon with other live segments throughout the day, as well as late Friday afternoon.

I guess the Virginia Tech-Miami game wasn't good enough for them.

I have mixed feelings about the situation. Blacksburg is kinda getting the shaft, since this is the second Saturday in a row that they've been hosting the only game that day between 2 Top 25 games, but not getting Gameday. Then again, Virginia Tech already played in a Gameday game (although it was a neutral site), and I don't think of them as a school that would get it twice in a season. It would still be an easy (private) plane ride from Blacksburg to State College for Herbstreit to call the 8pm game.

It should be at Vt. And next week should be at Miami for the Okl-Miami game

I guess having Herby with Fowler for postgame is more important than having the best game covered by Gameday. I think from this we ca take that Corso is a mess and cannot handle more than holding the pencil and saying not so fast my friend.
