Why the hell is College Gameday going to Tuscaloosa?

Seriously, Penn State is going to get whomped in all 3 quarters by 'Bama's first team. And then get whomped in the 4th by Bama's 2nd and 3rd team.

What a waste of mascot head picking, when you could have at least been at competitive games like Oklahoma vs. FSU or Miami vs. Ohio State.

Plus, you know the crew is going to be at at least 9-10 'Bama games this year regardless if they went for the Penn State game or not.

It just pisses me off. I'm also half pissed at Gene Smith. We probably would get gameday if he hadn't scheduled Marshall on Thursday and made it a night game. That way we could actually spend our exciting night game money on our premier opponent and get all of the hype that surrounds a big game like Miami (such as; night time, gameday bus, Herbsreit kids, Lee putting on Brutus' head, Musbeurger's hyperbole).

It just takes a little away from the season for me personally not to have that premier home night game. Sure, we had the Thursday night vs. Marshall game, but that was terrible. That was such a sour experience for me to watch Ohio State on a week night. And I know we get Wisconsin at night and that will be a really fun game, but its still not the 'Shoe.
