The way they worded it they sounded like they are claiming there were 28k at GameDay in the morning with Kirk, Des, Pat, etc. There is no way in heck that they had 28k fans show up there. Just look at that area. Do you think there were as many fans there as in the stands for the game? No way. They probably had about 10,000 show up.
I wasn’t there, but Bridgeforth can hold close to 25k officially. The number didn’t seem too off if the stands were actually packed.
I believe their numbers for the game but I am saying I don't believe they had that for College Game Day at 10am. In fact I know they were talking about for the TV show because we had over 34k for the game against Troy last year and that was not a record. I could see 10k or even 15k but no way they had 25k for the TV show.
Regardless, they had a huge turnout for Gameday in Harrisonburg.
On that note, I feel like College Gameday has really lost some sheen over the last few years. Pat Macafee is annoying, and the crowds aren’t as fun. If I were in charge, I’d forget “best game of the week” and go to the best atmosphere/culture each week. Look at the crowd in Harrisonburg or Boone last year compared to two weeks ago when they went to Tuscaloosa for the 400th time. There looked like maybe 500 ppl there. Give the little schools with good programs more love. I’d love to see more game days at Sun Belt, AAC, MAC, and FCS schools.
You get a game ball for a simple but true comment: “Macafee is annoying “
I didn’t mind him when he was just a contributor the last couple season. He was kinda funny and would do outlandish things. But having him on 100% of the time is waaaay too much. His WWE schtick wears thin REAL fast.

Game ball to the guy that figured JMU needed to host this week.

App 2-0 as part of a GameDay

28k folks there is a record for GameDay

They had a really good crowd. I just think they were inflating it because of the narrative they wanted to push. If they had a crystal ball and knew we would win I believe they would not have come to JMU. I know this was an epic game but the reality is they wanted to shine a light on JMU because they thought JMU was about to go undefeated in the Sun Belt and they had a huge story to push with them getting snubbed. ESPN has now quickly moved on because their narrative is gone. JMU was starting to annoy the media (outside of ESPN) and many schools with it so you are welcome CFB world.

Agreed. I did like how that guy who picked us kind of did a wrestling heel turn by luring them into thinking he was picking JMU but then picked us to win on Pat's show but for CGD I want a serious show. Pat should be a one time picker guest but being on every week has worn very thin.

That’s just it. The WWE stuff works on the Pat Macafee show because that’s what his show is all about. College Gameday isn’t (or wasn’t) the Pat Macafee show. It was a lighthearted, but completely serious, celebration of college football. Now it’s Macafee yelling, poor old Corso bumbling, and the rest discussing sports bets and the CFP to no end.

I'd say we are respected. JMU loses and is still in the AP top 25.

Hopefully that gives them extra motivation to kick coastal's ass so that they can stay in the top 25 by the end of the year.

Or they are just in love with JMU. If we had done the same and had a first loss in game 11 to a 6-4 team we wouldn't even have been receiving votes.

I have no idea who the guy is because I don't watch Game Day because of kh who makes me vomit. I went to youtube to see what he was about. Just another reason not to watch Game Day.

Indeed it does. His show is not my thing usually but have seen segments and will tune in for certain interviews. I use to watch CGD all the time but the last few years I have only watched when our game is involved in it.

Regardless, they had a huge turnout for Gameday in Harrisonburg.
On that note, I feel like College Gameday has really lost some sheen over the last few years. Pat Macafee is annoying, and the crowds aren’t as fun. If I were in charge, I’d forget “best game of the week” and go to the best atmosphere/culture each week. Look at the crowd in Harrisonburg or Boone last year compared to two weeks ago when they went to Tuscaloosa for the 400th time. There looked like maybe 500 ppl there. Give the little schools with good programs more love. I’d love to see more game days at Sun Belt, AAC, MAC, and FCS schools.
You get a game ball for a simple but true comment: “Macafee is annoying “
I didn’t mind him when he was just a contributor the last couple season. He was kinda funny and would do outlandish things. But having him on 100% of the time is waaaay too much. His WWE schtick wears thin REAL fast.
Agreed. I did like how that guy who picked us kind of did a wrestling heel turn by luring them into thinking he was picking JMU but then picked us to win on Pat's show but for CGD I want a serious show. Pat should be a one time picker guest but being on every week has worn very thin.
That’s just it. The WWE stuff works on the Pat Macafee show because that’s what his show is all about. College Gameday isn’t (or wasn’t) the Pat Macafee show. It was a lighthearted, but completely serious, celebration of college football. Now it’s Macafee yelling, poor old Corso bumbling, and the rest discussing sports bets and the CFP to no end.
If I'm not mistaken McAfee actually did some "pro" wrestling and commentating, so he knows how to play a shtick. It is annoying now for sure.

I do not believe Pat McAfee will be back with college gameday next year. https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/ncaafb ... r-AA1joyNE
