    For your school. Big crowd, lots of stories about your team. A tear jerker generally thrown in about one of your players. Just a metric ass load of free marketing.

    Right? I checked my cable subscription and I didn’t see it anywhere. Trust me. I checked numerous times.

    I couldn't find it either, so I just added a bunch of seemingly salacious subscription add-ons to my streaming service. Gotta have my bases covered before this game. If the wife asks any questions, I'll just tell her I thought I was ordering a Florida game on PPV.

    Not bad at all. Just ripped off the tiger head at the end.

    Ah yes. Another game we had no "realistic" chance in. A disappointing rebuild year with major QB concerns up against a hated rival at the top of their game ready to steamroll straight into yet another national championship game. The only question was how badly they were going to beat us.

    Glad I went anyway.

    Picking a cross-conference game makes a whole of sense/cents to me.

    This is 100% true. To add to this, if you aren't one of THE teams, you aren't going to get talked about much at all (unless as you point out, they are at your school).
    I liked Gameday a lot more when Tebow was playing.
    SEC (SEX) Nation is much better about giving football information and discussion since they only have to cover a limited number of teams. Makes it much more enjoyable/watchable. Laura R. doesn't hurt either.

    I agree with the thoughts on here. Gameday is great coverage and exposure for the team. But I much prefer SEC Nation. I just wish they would do away with that marty and mcgee garbabe.
