Former Georgia Bulldog and current ESPN analyst David Pollack revealed yesterday that his network’s “College GameDay” crew will be heading to South Carolina for the season-opening tilt between old rivals Georgia and Clemson. At least that’s what he thinks is going to happen:
“We’ll be there, yeah. I think with Clemson and their fanbase and how great they are, and GameDay hasn’t been there in a long time… I don’t know if it’s released yet, but I’m pretty sure. I don’t see anywhere else. I don’t think TCU and LSU would be the spot. If you can go to Death Valley with those fans, they’ve got some awesome fans. It’s an SEC-type atmosphere.”
The August 31st game between the Bulldogs and Tigers has already been slotted into ABC’s primetime broadcast, meaning that Kirk Herbstreit would have a much easier day of travel.
