Each week during the 2020 season, Marty Smith and Ryan McGee will celebrate all of the stuff that makes college football great: the sights, sounds, places and pageantry that make it the greatest sport in these United States of America. The same kinds of conversations you can hear and see during Marty & McGee, Wednesdays on SEC Network/ESPN App (7 p.m. ET) and Saturday mornings on SEC Network/ESPN App and ESPN Radio (7-10 a.m. ET). This week the boys look back on their close encounters with college football’s most famous — and sometimes infamous — fans.
Ryan McGee: OK, to me there are three categories here. The fans who are famous for being fans, the fans who think they are famous for being fans, and then there are the famous people who are fans. Does that make sense?
Marty Smith: I think that makes a lot of sense. I think your categorization is spot-on. If categorization is even really a word, because sometimes we do make up words on Marty & McGee. But I think your categorization is a very fair representation of what we are discussing this week during our ESPN.com feature. What the hell is the name of our ESPN.com feature anyway?
McGee: It doesn’t have one. I say we call it “College Football Is Awesome.”
Marty: And it is. Again, nice categorization.
McGee: The group I want to talk about aren’t the famous fans but the ones who are famous for being fans. You and I go stand on a sideline
