Fans Praise Pat McAfee for Work on College GameDay
Pat McAfee is giving the people what they want, and they want more of him.
Not that it’s much of a surprise, but the West Virginia product and former NFL punter turned media mogul is receiving praise for his work as part of ESPN’s College GameDay. This really became evident after the show this morning from Athens, Georgia ahead of the Bulldogs matchup with SEC rival Tennessee.
Tweet after tweet, and from fans from all over the country, showed appreciation for what McAfee brings to the table.

A couple of highlights of this Saturday’s show include McAfee being in need of a bib while enjoying a giant sandwich and had some fun with guest picker country music star Luke Bryan.

Already signed to a WWE contract and hosting a daily talk show streamed to millions on his YouTube, McAfee agreed to join the GameDay crew as a full-time member earlier this season.
