The fans that attend College GameDay contribute to the one-of-a-kind atmosphere that makes it one of the best sports shows on television. The fans and their creative, funny signs are just a big a star on GameDay as Kirk Herbstreit or Lee Corso.
But every now and then there’s a guy who has no filter, tries to be too clever, and ends up doing something stupid.
Like the fan who thinks he’s making a cheeky cultural reference with the “Hands Up Don’t Spear” sign.
Yep, that’d be a reference to the protests surrounding the Michael Brown shooting. At College GameDay. Yea college football.
The fan and sign were thankfully removed.
The sign in question was removed before air and the individual who made it has left the square. Thanks for the flag, @richarddeitsch .
