Next Saturday, ESPN’s College Gameday will be coming to Oxford, Mississippi where it will set up outside a courthouse in anticipation of what should be an epic battle between university lawyers and NCAA investigators. It’s the matchup many Ole Miss fans have waited years to see, and can hardly believe is finally here.
“It’s just so great to finally be back,” said host Kirk Herbstreit as he looked up insults on his phone to call Chris Petersen. “It seemed like all of Ole Miss’s big games the last few years were leading up to this big moment, so we had to be here. Plus the chances of us ever covering a real football game here are less than zero after this season.”
Meanwhile, Ole Miss fans are excited to be back in the national spotlight. “It’s just great that people are talking about us again,” said Ole Miss fan Sunny Benson. “I honestly forgot we even had a football team this year, and there’s no way I could even tell you what the name of our coach is.” It is rumored that at the end of the broadcast, all of the Gameday hosts will pick the NCAA to win the matchup, except Lee Corso who plans to put on a headgear that is accidentally and extremely racist.
