The possibility of a visit to Ole Miss by ESPN’s popular College Gameday crew has made for interesting internet discussion recently. I’m hearing there’s been no official contact with the university, and a person with knowledge of such proceedings rates such a visit as unlikely.
ESPN producers and other network folks did meet with the pertinent folks at Ole Miss and conduct a site survey for a possible visit in 2008.
The date in question is the Ole Miss-Texas game on Sept. 15. This stage of the calendar would be a time of planning for ESPN. Maybe the game is on the network’s list of possibilities, but there are apparently no official wheels turning at this time.
