If you didn’t already know, College GameDay is following the Nittany Lions to Columbus next week as they take on No. 6 Ohio State in The Horseshoe. The runners-up (i.e. colleges who will not see GameDay in their city this week) were Notre Dame (South Bend) and Iowa State (Ames).
As you might imagine, fans of both schools were upset with the decision. Naturally, they took to Twitter to express their discontent.
This poor fan is not happy.
im very upset.

These people need a melody from the world’s smallest violin.
Wtf. ESPN must really hate going to South Bend

Still no Notre dame eh? Brutal

Missed a perfect setting in Ames. It would be nice to see you visit other places and cover other teams. #CollegeAmesDay

Nice jab, Pat.
Might as retitle it #CollegeLameDay. This should have been in Ames

This fan started to feel nostalgic about the good ol’ days of College Gameday.
I long for the days when @CollegeGameDay was special, each and every week. There is nothing special about going to Columbus twice.

How dare GameDay turn down Iowan hospitality to watch Penn State for the second time in a row!? And, in Ohio of all places!
So sad you didn’t select Iowa State. You haven’t seen anything until you’ve experienced Iowa hospitality. #cyclones

You heard it here first: ESPN = murderers.
Boo. Follow the money rather than great college football story. ESPN is slowly killing college football.

At least some folks are happy to see us again.

These fans even had some OS-approved content ideas for ESPN.
After Penn State beats Ohio State maybe they will go for the three peat against Mich State. I’m in

@CollegeGameDay just gonna follow Penn St around for the rest of the year?

Are you also planning to rename the program to “The Penn State Traveling Show” (presented by Home Depot)

This poor fellow does not even know the definition of pathetic. Tragic.
ESPN All over Penn State this year…pathetic.

We may not agree with Ohio State fans on much, let alone anything, but we agree on this bottom line:
You guys whining about this are a bunch of losers. The #2 team at the #6 team was the obvious choice. Ames??? 😂
