Outside of the big game, one of the most highly desired portions of ESPN’s College GameDay show is when celebrities join the guys and make their game picks. From Will Ferrell to Lolo Jones to the now infamous Ryan Lochte incident, celebrities and athletes really seem to get a kick out of playing an analyst for a few minutes.
Now, according to ESPN’s Senior Coordinating Producer Lee Fitting, they’re setting the bar for the upcoming season even higher – not going after actors/actresses or Olympic athletes, but rather two of the most famous people on the earth. Who exactly? None other than both Tiger Woods and President Barack Obama.
Per Sports Illustrated:
“The President has expressed interest and as crazy as it sounds, he might come whenever he can fit in,” said Fitting, who has produced GameDay for the last 10 years. “It sounds crazy to even talk about, I know. Tiger has also expressed interest and we have talked to his agent, Mark Steinberg. He just has to work it into his schedule. We are talking about going to Stanford for it.”
