Default What we are hearing on GameDay for NC State

We just spoke to a source to get the latest on whether ESPN GameDay will be at Clemson for the NC State game.

This source tells us they are giving strong consideration to going to the West Coast that weekend for either the Oregon game at Washington State game or the Colorado game at Washington.

We are told the Washington State game is attractive to them because of the 250 game streak of Washington State flying their flag at GameDays.

So if you want ESPN GameDay to come to Clemson you should pull for Washington to defeat Oregon this week and for Southern Cal to defeat Colorado. If that happens some of the shine comes off the other two possibilities.

ESPN won't make a decision until the results are known of this weekend's games. Clemson is under consideration but not the frontrunners right now according to this source.

Clemson's top 20 matchup with NC State certainly seems to be a more attractive game than those other two possibilities but that is what we heard so we wanted to pass it along.

We will let you know as we hear more.

If they do show up, Desmond needs to take a sick day.

BOTH of those are most likely to happen

West Coast football = irrelevant. Hopefully gameday makes it to Clemson.

Iím biased but neither of those sound all that compelling.

Is there any truth to Clemson telling Gameday that they would prefer them not come on Homecoming weekend? I could see it being a conflict with both Gameday and the floats being on Bowman Field, and i've read elsewhere that Clemson has said no to Gameday on Homecoming. I feel like the field is big enough for both, and I think the floats would make for an awesome backdrop. I don't really care if they come or not though.

That is not accurate. Clemson did not tell ESPN no GameDay on Homecoming.

And by the way Clemson has already hosted GameDay one other time on Homecoming.

Thanks. I could see it being true, but I felt like it probably wasn't. The field is huge and why turn away all that publicity!?

I know they've had Gameday during homecoming at least once. They did a piece on it that morning

Really, because of a flag. So teams who need a lot of teams in front of them to lose and probably lose multiple times just to be relevant in CFP talk could have an advantage for hosting Gameday than 2 undefeated teams in the ACC with probably the Atlantic on the line? Makes sense, if you're Desmond Howard but not if you want to broadcast the game that has the highest stakes for that weekend. Too me ESPN just spit in the face of NC State, telling them your not a big enough name. We all know it's not because of Clemson, 1 of the 2 top teams in the country the past 3 years.

Don't give up yet. We'll see how those games go.

Does the 3:30 gametime not already show Gameday is not coming or would ESPN put gameday and their top announcing crew on the 330 time slot

I was walking by Bowman earlier and they are setting up everything for Homecoming now. I took a second to locate where they would put GameDay if it were to come and it looked like the Habitat for Humanity House build would be a problem for the GameDay crew. I expect if there were to come here, it will likely have to be at a different location, an idea that comes to mind may be the Amphitheater. But, that is a decision for the people in charge to make.

3:30pm means nothing. I believe several years ago against FSU we had GameDay come for a 3:30pm game. Last weekend, Texas vs. Oklahoma was a 12pm (11pm locally) game and GameDay was there for that.
