As if we needed any more evidence of how pumped Texas A&M is to be in the SEC, over 3,500 fans came out for the ESPN GameDay promotion in College Station. You think the 12th man is ready to kickoff this season?
If you remember, the Aggies won the right to have the promo at Kyle Field a while back.
GameDay host Chris Fowler was more than impressed:
“They were camping out in 100-degree weather. I said they were loyal; I didn’t say they were smart. But that’s what you do when you’re passionate. This (scene) doesn’t really surprise me, because it’s well known around the country, and particularly around football, the level of passion and loyalty here.
We’re flattered, (but) we also know this is more of a statement of what they think of their program than it is our program. The lure of being on camera is pretty strong for a lot of them, too.”
The commercial will be airing sometime before football season.
