    No. The outcome between AU vs PSU is in doubt either team could win. UF vs Bama...outcome is not in doubt. What is in doubt is the margin of victory Bama will have...

    A lot of people do. When they come to your school it’s a free 3 hour infomercial.

    People can rip on the content of Game Day all they want, but the show is on the air for as long as it has been because a lot of people watch it. And when they roll in to your town all of those eyeballs are on your school.

    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    Have you ever said anything positive about the Gators? I think you are a closet nole fan.

    Like it or not, Gameday has been an outside validation of importance of your game. ...that said, they quit going to the best game of the day years ago..they just go to the best game on the ESPN family of networks.

    you can be the featured 3:30 CBS game or host Gameday, but not both. I rather have then 3:30 game whether watching at home or in person

    UF has been on gameday multiple times. Probably top 5 in gameday appearances. It's just not as entertaining as it used to. And coach is too old now. I felt sorry for him whenever a terrible celebrity guest makes fun of him. The one I saw a few years ago was Matthew Mconohey. What an a-hole!

    Its more accurate to say Gameday will avoid the main SEC CBS game if there's a viable alternative or they fear its too repetitive. But if there's no viable alternative, and/or the game is simply too big to ignore, then they'll come. PSU/Auburn is a viable alternative now that Auburn is also ranked.

    I believe Gameday was at the cocktail party two years ago, correct? I bet they're at a couple CBS SEC games this year (Bama/aTm, SECCG).

    The alphabet network loves going to the {{BIG}} annual white out game at Pedophile State University. They usually lose more than they win, hope it’s no different Sat - War Eagle!

    They host CBS games often.

    But they do like to cycle games/venues, and they try to limit repeats. And if all else is equal they’d prefer an espn game over cbs

    Skipping this game makes sense. Florida and Bama both will still be good enough to have a gameday game later in the year. And if UF isn’t good enough, then that means they get blasted Saturday.

    They will realize they blew it when they see an exciting and very underrated Gator team take the Crimson Tide down in 'The Swamp.' Besides, we got Laura ;)

    Unrelated: There are some interesting cheers coming from the student sections this year too. Gives me hope for our youth. They must be paying attention after all...:eek::p

    Witnessed the most memorable game of my life against the Noles in 1997. Loudest the Swamp has ever been..it was a fun time. I see things from a realistic perspective....

    #3 in Hosts, appearances and wins.

    UF was just featured 3 times in 2019. People act like we are some also ran in this debate.

    Florida is a Gameday standard...and yes the show absolutely still matters and is watched by a LOT of CFB fans.

    They don’t have the exclusive viewership anymore. As I said, I like SEC network's pre-game show and sometimes I watched Fox's show.

    You probably were telling everyone we had no chance in ‘97 as well.

    Infomercial for what? Recruits aren't making a call based on who's on Gameday each week.

    I think this show carries a lot less weight than it did 10, 15 years ago, too.
