Best College GameDay Sign – Virginia Tech | Blacksburg, VA, 09/30/17

This week the College GameDay crew stormed onto Virginia Tech’s campus in Blacksburg, Virginia. With GameDay back on a college campus where it belongs, I expected a better turnout than last week’s NYC showing. The nerds at Virginia Tech did not disappoint.

As expected, Dabo Swinney took another beating. This week made more sense since Virginia Tech is playing Clemson, but there’s no doubt that Dabo is the inspiration for a large percentage of all GameDay signs this year. I’m not a fan of how easy GameDay-goers are letting Nick Saban off these days, but maybe we’ll see Saban signs pick up once they get into the meat of the SEC schedule and he does something to be a dickhead.

On to this week’s awards…  Continue reading

Coming Soon: Today’s Best College GameDay Signs

Every Saturday we see hilarious signs on ESPN’s College GameDay. The Washington State flag is a staple, but each week we’re blessed with hilarious signs (if you get the joke behind it) and sometimes questionable claims or accusations about an opposing player or coach (i.e. MilkGate between Michigan and Ohio State fans last season).

This season I’ll be posting the best sign(s) I saw throughout the day. If you come across any as you fight off a Saturday morning hangover and try to figure out if you’re watching Chris Fowler or Rece Davis talk, be sure to send them my way.

I’m an Ohio Bobcats season ticket holder (not to brag, but I’m bragging), so I will be relying heavily on Twitter and our loyal readers to send screen grabs my way. I don’t know if I’ll be able to get the bartender at Pigskin to stop, rewind, and pause one of their TVs just so I can take a picture of someone making fun of Nick Saban for not smiling.

This week the College GameDay crew is in Columbus, Ohio for the Ohio State vs. Oklahoma (the knock-off OU). Since it’s a late match up, there should be plenty of time for funny signs to be caught on camera if you can see past all the Home Depot signage and subtle advertisement.

Send any signs you see my way at @MillironMac on Twitter. I’ll credit you for finding the best sign of the week if I use yours, and somewhere down the line we may work in some prizes or other opportunities (a day spent with Jefe, perhaps).

King Saban Wants to Change NCAA Football Scheduling Because He’s Bored with Winning Everything

ESPN – Alabama coach Nick Saban has a theory for the College Football Playoff that he thinks is “so far out” that nobody will listen to him.

“We should play all teams in the Power 5 conferences,” Saban said Wednesday. “If we did that, then if we were going to have bowl games, we should do the bowl games just like we do in the NCAA basketball tournament — not by record but by some kind of power rating that gets you in a bowl game. If we did that, people would be a little less interested in maybe bowl games and more interested in expanding the playoff.”

Shut up, Nick. Well, I mean… I kinda agree with you in some aspects, but shut up. While it’s absurd that 6 wins can get you a bowl berth, I’m not a fan of the expanded playoff system and the Power 5 conferences keeping to themselves throughout the regular season.  Continue reading
