College GameDay: They've already come to our City

This morning College GameDay is in town for the fifth time. We already know you're going and we already know it will be amazing. Kirk Herbstreit agrees, "Anytime we can come back to the Big Ten region and get into this cool air, I'm a huge fan... we hope people will come out and join the hyped up scene we have around GameDay." Not enough? Today marks Lee Corso's 200th headgear selection. He picked MSU in 1999 when MSU beat Michigan.

You can get involved by getting up early tomorrow and heading down to campus. Parking will open in the Comm Arts ramp at 6:30 a.m. If you intend on being in the first few rows, you'll want to be there a couple hours before GameDay airs from 9 to noon. Parking for students can be done, but it will involve a trip using the old Airwalks.

As fans, we don't often get to directly influence the course of anything for team we bleed green and white for. In home games, we might draw a false start or cause the opposing team to take a timeout. In away games depending on the place, we might get pelted by batteries or into a fight in the stands or even in the case of Northwestern set up a home like atmosphere. Largely, the game happens outside of us, we just get to show up and watch.

However, this is different. Desmond Howard unintentionally threw down the gauntlet. When asked "What do you expect tomorrow?" he answered, "We've had some fantastic crowds, Ann Arbor, Tallahassee, Morgantown and since we're back on campus we'd like to keep that trend of fantastic crowds." This is something we can show up and represent MSU with lots of Spartan Pride and give them a crowd to remember.
