Yeah, neither of those provide any contribution in the college football world. 07-coffee3

Those are the sources you used? 247Sports and SportingNews? LOL You should have just posted a link to your own personal tweet.

Did you just compare SportingNews with a personal tweet?

Yes...because the links provided are basically that...basically a writer's throwaway thought. It was never really talked about in any substantial way....so yes, a personal tweet would have been just as valid to me as either of those two links.

You were clearly trying to discredit the sources by comparing them to your (my) own personal tweet. It's interesting to see your story change. 07-coffee3

I also stand by the descrediting of the sources in general. SportingNews is a shell of its former self and is basically just a blog now....247Sports is essential a Rivals site owned by CBS. Neither site has any more influence or insight into College GameDay selection as some sports fan on Twitter.

So any projections made by a reputable medium that is not from the horse's mouth itself (ESPN) are unfounded? Do you also discredit traditional media when they make predictions on award ceremonies as they don't have any more influence or insight into who will win the awards than the general public? You must as you pointed out 247Sports is owned by CBS. I suppose all mediums should be discredited then. 07-coffee3

The fact is that the writers who wrote these articles follow college football for a living. They aren't "some sports fan on Twitter." They have insight as to which type of games are chosen for College GameDay and make projections based off that knowledge. To discredit a projection (and a source) because they don't directly influence the selection process is irresponsible on your part. And they're only predictions, FFS.
