    Pollard has said that if they do come, they would have it between scheman/stephens. He wants Jack Trice to be in the background.

    He’s svelte comparatively.

    I’m not the model of male physique, but these guys were just slobs. The one who shared an office with me would loudly eat at his desk every day, spilling chipotle mayonnaise on his tie.

    I hate those clowns so much.

    That would be a good spot. I also always thought that they could close down 4th street (which I think they do anyways with the busses, just leaving the entrances to the donor lots open) and have it in front of the Olsen building with the tailgating in the background. They will still show shots of the campus when they break to commercial, so there will be plenty of opportunity to showcase the campus scenery, Welch, etc. Has anyone ever attended a Gameday? Don’t they also have a second smaller stage featuring Pollack and Maria Taylor’s segments? Do they set this stage up in the same spot as the main stage or can it be in a different spot?

    Just curious but when did JP say that because this is the first I've heard that referenced. With the current construction project I can't see that serving as a very good backdrop. Plus the stadium is a long ways away from that spot so what kind of a visual would you even get? Central campus is an absolute no brainer.

    He also said it in a facebook live interview with John Walters a few weeks ago.

    I don't think central administration wants it on central campus due to all the potential damage/tearing up it could do. How is it different than Veishea concerts they had years ago, i dunno but thats what I've been told.

    Wow. That would be a HUGE miss by the University IMO.

    Central wearhouse does not want it on central campus either. They are super busy and dont need all the stuff going through them in order to get set up

    I can see both sides of the argument. Either way, it'll be awesome if gameday does show up.

    No matter when we finally get Gameday or where they set up, I just hope they have an awesome tribute featuring the Jack Trice story during the show. That would be really cool to tell that story to the rest of the country. Our stadium’s namesake is truly historically significant.

    Potentially, there could be a lot of vandalism if a lot of orcs show up from the east.

    YES!! Exactly right. Baby bro will be making a big mess of things, and I'm not just talking about messing in their diapers. Imagine hawkeye tattoo on his belly guy, vomiting on TV. Ugh.

    Or god forbid, Kujofan showing up and starting a riot with CyTwins.

    When Gameday came to Madison a few years back they set up on campus overlooking State Street. It was pretty awkward bc the incline of the hill made it difficult to see fans in the background. UW has a horrible campus compared to ISU though so there isn't much to work with anyway. I never saw the smaller stage; no idea where they crammed that one in.

    The only problem with that is they are going to Orlando in Week 0, tough draw to go there twice in the first 4 weeks of the season
