I know there's a lot of hate on Gameday lately but please consider this:
Gameday/ESPN has the eyes and ears of the CFP committee. The things said on that show resonate and they'll spend an inordinate amount of time talking about the Buckeyes this Saturday. That will, directly or indirectly influence committee members, CFB media (think AP voters), and will most likely continue into AA next week if the Buckeyes and TTUN win.
I think it's important to recognize this 'PR' aspect of Gameday and am concerned the fanbase isn't seeing it that way.
