    Does this mean UCF will take credit for a College Gameday appearance on their campus?

    Wonder what it would cost to have Disney paint a few of the bigger Gators in their Jungle Cruise attraction orange and blue for the weekend.

    Well not unexpected but great to hear!

    I like what the Gators and Canes have done with moving the game up. Will spark national interest, set the tone for the season!

    Gators and Canes, lets get it on!!!!!!!

    Some Wazzu fan somewhere is pissed that he’ll have to buy a ticket to Disney for the day just to smuggle in a WSU flag to display in the background.

    I guess this proves Disney is ready to give up on Wide World of Sports if they won't even plan a College Gameday appearance in their park.

    For the record, I'm a little pissed. I have no intention of paying the $100 grand a head or whatever the Mouse is charging for tickets these days, but I would have have really liked to have seen Game Day if they were where they were supposed to be - At the Game.

    A simple solution if I were the College Gameday staff is let everyone know the main guys from the show would also make an appearance during SEC Nation and at halftime of the ESPN game broadcast. They're in the area and no other games to talk about so make use of the game features and by God at least show up.

    This is going to be... weird. They won't be letting in anyone just for the show; you have to be a ticketed guest. I wonder how many people are willing to spend a few hours watching this after paying out the nose to get in the park in the first place?
    Granted, you'll probably have some passholders going to check it out, but I just don't know if this is going to be an intriguing atmosphere. Lord knows I don't watch GameDay for the talking heads....
