    The fact that they’re talking about a show that crescendoes with an octogenarian donning a mascot head every week makes shit like this even more ridiculous.
     
  13. I mean they are getting basically fucked out of existence in this conference realignment and they have been a fabric of the show with the traveling flag every week on THE pregame show for CFB I can see why they are butthurt even if it is a little over the top but it is basically an existential crisis for the fanbase and I see people in each team's game week threads complaining about random play calls and wanting to self immolate over a bad drive let alone over something with much more long term damage

    I get why they’re upset. It’s just humorous that they’ve put so much effort and importance into something that the rest of the CFB world has always viewed as a novelty show for kids and casuals. Acting like it’s some revered institution and not about ESPN and/or its on-air personalities is pretty silly.

    If we’re talking beyond kids and casuals, I strongly disagree. The show has always been to promote ESPN/ABC games and conferences. They’ve always been dragged for East Coast (and then SEC) bias.

    I'd argue that Gameday is the public face of college football. It shouldn't be important. But it probably is. We (hardcore CFB fans, TMB'ers, whatever) know the deal with ESPN looking out for its own interests, but the general public probably thinks of ESPN as a neutral party. So when ESPN goes out of its way to shit on and disenfranchise certain programs/conferences, it sways perception/support/eyeballs.

    It's just all rather unfortunate at this point.

    Kids, like the people that every school is recruiting to come play? It’s naive to think “kids and casuals” aren’t extremely important to college football landscape.

    We’re talking past each other. I understand that a lot of people watch Gameday. Its target audience is not diehards. To cater to its target audience, it’s about the personalities and human interest stories. It’s not the “Fourth Estate” of college football. It’s the Today Show.

    “CFB world has always viewed as a novelty” is what I was disagreeing with. This board and the like are not a very big part of the CFB world

    I said “the rest of the…” meaning non-kids and casuals.

    Clumsy wording on my part, either way. My bad.

    I for one used to love game day, and placed an unnecessarily high level of importance about them coming to psu when I was a student. Also it was a good vehicle to mainline college football into my veins first thing Saturday morning when I had no other responsibilities and my entire weekend was about how much football I could watch w my friends. I haven’t watched it in like a decade because I’m finally a real adult human.

    I think college/hs kids and casuals are a significant demographic tuning into games. If you’re hardcore that fades as you become an adult with a life, family, etc.

    I think this has more to do with the monetization of the product. College football across the board isn’t nearly as good as it use to be

    As a fan of a football program that has never hosted a CFB Gameday, I agree. Gameday is meaningless and quite honestly for suckers and losers.
