Northwestern College GameDay in Evanston Open Thread!

Kevin Jairaj-US PRESSWIRE

Let's watch our friends on TV!

Hello, friends! Are you in Evanston or anywhere remotely close? GO. LEAVE NOW. GO BE ON COLLEGE GAMEDAY. MAKE SURE THERE ARE LOTS OF PURPLE PEOPLE THERE. GO GO GO GO GO GO GO GO.

Are you not? Well, let's watch College GameDay at Northwestern together! Our friends should be there, and hopefully they made the signs we all said that we'd make. I'll be trying to screencap people and find tweets and if you guys want to play along with me I would appreciate that.

Brent Musburger is the GameDay picker, which came as a bit of a surprise, on account of the fact that he's there every week and has never done this before -- I had him all the way down there at 75-1! -- but he's fun so that should be fun. It's especially fun because, you know, Brent Musburger and gambling, although he won't be allowd to actually say his take on Ohio State-Northwestern due to ESPN policy. Apparently, they tried to get Steven Colbert and Seth Meyers, but it didn't work out. Musburger ain't a bad third option.

This should be fun.

AND OH BY THE WAY IT'S GAMEDAY AND WE PLAY OHIO STATE TODAY
