ESPN Figuring Out How To Make ‘GameDay’ Work During The Pandemic
Brad Mills-USA TODAY Sports
If and when college football begins expect ESPN's College GameDay to be right there up and running no matter what the circumstance...

“We’re still determining what ‘GameDay’ would look like this season and, frankly, it could be different every week what it looks like,” Fitting told The Associated Press on Wednesday. “It could be potentially on the sidelines of an early game. It could be on the concourse in a stadium. It could even still be on campus.

“Will there be thousands of fans behind our set screaming like we’ve known it the last however many years?” Fitting said. “Absolutely not.”

Fitting conceded the show could even originate from a studio in Bristol, Connecticut, for the first time since the week college football returned after the 9/11 attacks.

“I don’t think we can ever rule that out. That’s not our first option,” Fitting said. “But our first priority is the health and safety of everyone we work alongside.”
Fitting said he “absolutely” expects Corso, who recovered from a stroke in May 2009 to return to “GameDay” that season, to be part of the show for a 33rd year.

How? Don’t know yet, Fitting said.

“We’re not going to be put him, obviously, in harm’s way. Nor does he want that. And if that means we get to the point where there’s a camera at his house, that’s what we do,” Fitting said.

He also added: “Our goal is to have all our people in one spot.”

We could absolutely have college football without them. Pregame shows are nothing more than background noise that we half pay attention to.

I'm beginning to think that we will have fall football even though our pandemic is out of control. There will be many positive COVID cases with or without football.
