P.J. Fleck wants Gameday to skip LSU/bama
The Minnesota Gophers Coach says his 8-0 squad deserves to have Gameday come to their matchup with Penn State on November 9th instead of the “usual” LSU/bama matchup.

LINK

quote:

“I said on TV ‘I really hope College GameDay looks at our twin city, our university, truly to bring GameDay here,;” Fleck said when asked what his pitch to GameDay would be.


quote:

“We have four million people that live in the twin city area. We are the only division one school in the state of Minnesota. Everybody here is Gophers. We have never hosted College GameDay. All due respect to Alabama and LSU, I have no idea what’s going on with them right now, but I can tell you this: You can go to them any year. Pick a year. Pick a game. You can go to them every game of the season, if you would like. College GameDay is about unique stories, about unique places, about unique moments. That’s what they say they’re about, and I’m not going to say they’re not if they don’t come here, because I think that would be bad.”

Give it to them. They do deserve jt. It’s always In Tuscaloosa every year. I wanna see how they represent. Being their first time I expect it to be rowdy. They’ve earned it. I hope it dumps snow too.

Of course he does. Having Game Day would be a big recruiting tool for his program. He's doing a good job. I have no problem with this.

Pulling hard for the Gophers this year, but this LSU-Bama game is the biggest college football game in a few years.

It'll never happen, but that's exactly what I would say if I were him.

I'd think less of him if he didn't say this.

They deserve it, though. Just bad luck for them.

Have no argument with this. He's just promoting his own team, which any head coach rightfully should.

He's got a point, but Game Day is not passing on 1 vs 2 which is essentially a playoff game.

If GameDay goes to Minnesota, I would have no issue with it. The guy's right. How often will they get a chance to go to Minnesota for a big game?

Now, Penn State will likely bludgeon the Gophers, but....

I know Minnesota isn't really a huge P5 program, but it is kinda embarrassing to have the athletic department and coach of a P5 school begging so hard for gameday.

So you don't know who the top 2 teams are in the nation, along with the top 2 Heisman contenders?

College gameday as a road show was literally born because of #1 vs #2 matchups. They are going to get absolutely embarassed by Penn State in 2 weeks.

Who cares where gameday goes? It doesn’t affect our game in the slightest
