Mr. College Football has reported ESPN’s Gameday is considering visiting Atlanta around the Alabama-Clemson game in the Georgia Dome.
1. College Game Day coming to the ATL? The folks at ESPN like to keep their options open and insist no decision has been made. But Iâ€™m hearing that the College Game Day boys are coming to Atlanta on Aug. 30 as part of the run-up to the Clemson-Alabama game at the Georgia Dome. Thatâ€™s going to be a fun weekend of football around here. Georgia Tech plays Jacksonville State (and Ryan Perrilloux) on Thursday, Aug. 28. There will be plenty of high school football on Friday. Georgia will play Georgia Southern in the afternoon (Iâ€™m guessing) on Aug. 30 in Athens with Clemson-Alabama as the nightcap back in Atlanta.
I don’t have the stats in front of me, but this will cause a panic among superstitious fans who worry about the Gameday jinx for the Tide.
