    There is one of the ESPN shows on the tv above the bar. They are doing it live from Clemson it would appear.

    There is a guy in the background when they show the little George Michael bearded mediot doing an O-H-I-O by himself

    :lol:

    Just checked out highlights of that game; looks like N’kosi Perry came in and started slinging it around pretty well against a rather lax defense. VT was absolutely slaughtering them.

    It's an acc coastal matchup. There is no outcome that could would be surprising.

    Inside ‘Big Noon Kickoff’ and Fox’s big dreams for a new Saturday staple
    By Max Olson 6h ago

    LOS ANGELES — The very first shot of “Big Noon Kickoff” to open Week 6 was of Jim Harbaugh, stepping off the Michigan team bus and strolling into the Big House to take on Iowa. And here was Urban Meyer, seated 1,900 miles away in a studio on the Fox lot, prepared to spend his day talking on television about his former rival. For the third time in five weeks, Fox’s Saturday morning pregame show is the lead-in to a Wolverines game. And they still can’t get Meyer to utter the word “Michigan” on TV.

    Meyer had some initial trepidation about how to approach his former foe. The feedback he got from management: Don’t even worry about it. Say good things when they’re playing well. Say bad things when they’re bad. A month in, he’s getting the hang of it. “They have to win today,” Meyer declared later in the show. “They have to win.” And he’s right, that’s no troll. When it’s time for picks at the end of the show, the graphic with his prediction says “WOLVERINES 20-17.” Meyer is at least willing to say that word out loud on occasion.

    But that quirk can work on this show. Authenticity is the aim. And they trust that fans, even the ones in Ann Arbor, want to hear what Meyer has to say about their team. The most important thing in trying to build up compelling pregame programming, Fox Sports executive producer Brad Zager says, is relevance and credibility in college football. And Ohio State’s former head coach brings plenty of both to his new team alongside Matt Leinart, Reggie Bush, Brady Quinn and Rob Stone.

    How do you build a better Saturday morning pregame show? This is the big question Fox is trying to answer this season. It’s a tricky endeavor when you’re largely starting from scratch with a new cast. Building rapport and finding rhythm takes time, but they also had to be really good right away to grab their audience’s attention. Six weeks in, the results have been encouraging.

    “The investment behind the scenes has been off the charts, never seen before in this building for college football,” Stone said. “And I think we all knew that we had to come out of the gates strong, because everyone will kill you on that first impression if you don’t nail it. We had a really strong opening week which I think caught some eyeballs and interest of a lot of people. I don’t think we’ve let people down since.”

    ...

    The head coach wants to win. He wants a two-hour show. He’s been saying it for weeks. Meyer is not very subtle about wanting to take aim at ESPN’s “College GameDay” and contend with them. Last week’s “Big Noon Kickoff” drew 927,000 viewers. And “GameDay” got 1.976 million. It’s hard to compare the two, though, when the latter is a three-hour program. Even with the increased competition, viewership for “GameDay” is up 4 percent year-over-year.

    Stone has been in broadcasting long enough to know what the wins look like, and he would reassure Meyer after their first shows that these are wins, that they’re doing things nobody expected of them this early.

    And the money quote of that article...

    “I think the football IQ in the room is the best on television,” Meyer said.

    I must admit, learning which ACC teams were in which division is something I never bothered to do.

    When it was FSU in the 90s, it did not matter. Now with Clemson, it does not matter.

    NMST player just dropped the ball at the 1 going in for a TD. Lucky for him nobody recovered it and NMST gets the TD on the next play.

    I'm pretty confident that the top half of the Big East is better than the entirety of the ACC (besides Clemson).

    CSU returns the favor to NMST by fumbling through the end zone for a touchback by stretching for the pylon.

    :lol:

    Yeah that Desmond Howard vs Brady Quinn IQ matchup (football or otherwise) isn't a fight that's going to last very long.

    Hell, there is furniture on the FS1 set that's smarter than Howard.

    FS1 starting up Oregon-Colorado. It's gotta be more entertaining than the ACC snoozefest.
