I know a lot of people are juiced about this on Twitter, but I absolutely hate it. I enjoy the Masters, I love College GameDay and I 100% hate this decision from everyone involved.
The entire point of College GameDay is to visit different campuses around America. It has literally nothing to do with golf.
Do you know why I’m really not happy? It’s pretty simple. That weekend features a game between my beloved Wisconsin Badgers and the Michigan Wolverines.
In any other year, that would almost certainly have been where GameDay went. Instead of going to Ann Arbor for that awesome matchup, it’s going to The Masters!
I absolutely hate it. Haven’t the good people of Wisconsin and Michigan been through enough? Now, they’re losing the chance to have GameDay in a few weeks.

This is an atrocious call and I refuse to change my opinion on that fact.
