College GameDay (basketball TV program)

  (Redirected from College GameDay (basketball))

College GameDay (branded as ESPN College GameDay covered by State Farm for sponsorship reasons) is an ESPN program that covers college basketball and is a spin-off of the successful college football version. Since debuting on January 22, 2005, it airs on ESPN Saturdays in the conference play section of the college basketball season at 11 A.M. ET at a different game site each week. Before 2015, the college basketball version always appeared at the ESPN Saturday Primetime game location. Since the 2014–2015 season, the show has appeared at a top game of the week, similar to the college football version. The program has also appeared at the site of the Final Four. The official name of the show is College GameDay Covered by State Farm.

In 2005, the host of the show the first four weeks was Rece Davis, but then the last four weeks Chris Fowler hosted the show. Since 2006, Davis has been the exclusive host of the show. Since the show debuted, Davis has been joined by Digger Phelps, Jalen Rose, Jay Bilas, Hubert Davis, Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams as analysts. In 2008 during Championship Week, Bob Knight joined the cast, where he remained until 2012. Andy Katz has also served as a feature reporter giving up to the minute news and reports.

When College GameDay tipped off its 7th season on January 15, 2011, the show expanded to two hours, with the first hour airing on ESPNU, followed by the second hour on ESPN. The first game of the 2011 schedule marked the first time the show has originated from a site that has featured a men’s and women’s game played in the same day.

HistoryEdit

The program has appeared in many different spots throughout each basketball arena. At Kansas, they were in the program's museum; at Kentucky, they were at the entrance of the arena; at UConn, they were on the concourse; at Gonzaga, Florida, and Marquette, they were on the court; and at Duke, they were in Krzyzewskiville, the tent village outside Cameron Indoor Stadium. It is also worth noting that in recent years (except for the Final Four), the morning airings of this program have taken place on the court.

Through the end of the 2017–2018 basketball & football seasons, 24 schools (Boston College, Clemson, Florida, Florida State, Indiana, Kansas State, Kentucky, LSU, Michigan, Michigan State, North Carolina, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Pittsburgh, Purdue, Tennessee, Texas, Texas Tech, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Virginia Tech, West Virginia and Wisconsin) have hosted College GameDay for both basketball and football events.

Starting with the fourth season (2008), the basketball version of GameDay is broadcast in high-definition on ESPN HD.

On January 16, 2010, the 6th-season premiere of College GameDay, the show was broadcast live from the site of a women's college basketball game for the first time ever as it made an appearance at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Connecticut. The show covered the women's college basketball game between Notre Dame Fighting Irish and the Connecticut Huskies.

On March 9, 2013, College GameDay had a men's doubleheader from 2 different sites (Washington, DC and Chapel Hill, NC) for the first time in the show's history. On January 18, 2014, College GameDay opened its tenth season with another men's doubleheader, this time, at The Palestra in Philadelphia, PA and at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, CT.

For the 2013 and 2014 seasons, the intro for College GameDay was Macklemore's 2013 hit, Can't Hold Us.

On April 7, 2014, longtime analyst Digger Phelps announced his retirement and would not return for the 2015 season.[1] That summer, Jalen Rose announced he would not return due to his priorities with NBA Countdown. As a result of the two departures, ESPN announced that Seth Greenberg and Jay Williams would be analysts for 2015 and beyond.[2]

On September 30, 2014, ESPN announced that College GameDay would no longer have a set schedule, just like the football version of the show. Instead, the location will be chosen the week before to give the network a better opportunity to pick games with ranked teams and interesting story lines.[3]
