    College Game Day

    This show has gotten to the point where I can't watch it for more than 10 minutes....The continuous screaming, singing, etc in the background while they are trying to talk about the games has just become too distracting to me.

    I think I'm officially getting old but it seems that it has gotten worse.


    From the Land of Sky Blue Waters,
    From the land of pines' lofty balsams,
    Comes the beer refreshing,
    Hamm's the beer refreshing.

    I agree, it has jumped the shark.

    I don't think it's nearly as good as it used to be. Just like Sportscenter, all the people trying to come up with their own catch phrases, etc.

    This is the first time I've watched all year and it is a shell of its former self. Corso made that show, but now he can barely talk.

    Yeah, its sad. I have to mute it every time Corso starts to talk, he's completely lost without the teleprompter and even with it, he has a tough time getting through.

    And they just go over the Big 12 slate of games and of course, don't even mention ours. And they don't even mention the fact that kNU struggled to win last week, and instead show highlights of our game of only the plays in which kNU did well while talking about their game against KU today.

    Now they're talking to Mack Brown and he basically called the ISU loss an embarrassment, but did qualify it by saying that he thought his coaches and players didn't respect the opponent there or against UCLA.

    Corso kept confusing Iowa with Irish today when talking about the ND/UTAH match-up. Show is pretty poor now. Theory and Practice of Football Coaching at Ohio State with Tressel as the professor was cool though. Would be an awesome class to take.

    Re: College Game Day

    I was sitting in Stiver's getting an oil change when the show came on. They did have some nice clips of Iowa State playing Texas,.... but I was thinking to myself how I don't even care to watch the show anymore. I wish their was an alternative to watch on Saturday mornings.

    Never really liked Corso, but to see him now after the stroke is pretty rough and you have to feel for the guy.

    Re: College Game Day

    Why do TV talking heads still refer to a Texas loss as them getting upset? A #10 team (OKST) winning against an unranked team (texas) is not an upset.

    Re: College Game Day

    You are getting old

    I like to see the signs the students/ fans make. There are some JEMS everyweek.

    Today: "Mom, please send undies" - lol.

    I also laugh at their commercials: pretty funny how they make fun of Corso being old.
