We break down our preferred Louisville football celeb guest possibilities for this weekend’s program.
This Saturday, Louisville football will host its first College Gameday in three years, and my oh my have things changed for the program since then. A new coaching staff, many new players, and a brand new sports world, courtesy of the COVID-19 pandemic.
It will be the third time Louisville has hosted the show in its history, which is shown much of the morning till noon on Saturdays (hence the name “Gameday”) to a nationwide audience on ESPN. The school also hosted in 2016 (vs FSU) and 2017 (vs Clemson).
In the final segment of the show, the commentators go around the table and each give their picks for the day’s biggest games, and in doing so, they bring a celebrity guest to help them pick said games. The guest is going to always be a famous person that is synonymous with the city, state, or university that is hosting the show.
In 2016, Louisville’s guest was Laila Ali, daughter of Muhammad Ali; in 2017, the guest was a skin-tight football jersey-clad Rick Pitino, who was let go by the university just weeks later amid another batch of NCAA violations. But let’s not spoil the fun with that sludgy pale of mud.
In the pages ahead, I’ll give you the potential celebrity picks on the forefront of every Louisville fan’s mind:
