This may have been addressed earlier - not a country music fan so I don't read much of the posts about him - HOWEVER - can someone tell me why he is the guest picker at the Iowa State game today?

He is on a quest to promote every college football team in the country except his alma mater

Same reason Gameday has had the Chainsmokers on as guest pickers multiple times. To appeal to country music fans and so they can promote their upcoming tour.

He’s playing shows Green Bay this weekend, must be the closest celeb that they could get for a game in Iowa.

I believe it’s called marketing. Promoting yourself to appeal to different audiences etc. I would imagine Mr. Church is an astute businessman or has people around him who are marketing him and placing him in different media markets. Marketing 101.........

I am sitting at the Greensboro Science Center planetarium control desk and generally I try and not be a disturbance to the guests, but I read this and laughed out loud. Excellent post.


This is my very generic signature added to each post.

I understand why he is doing it - Promotion --- I should have asked - Why was he invited to Iowa for GameDay?

Eric Church was on the Jumbotron before the game decked out in UNC gear cheering on the tar holes and pumping up their crowd. They used him as part of their intro video. Can we officially disown him now? That was as low as it gets and he’s done as a mountaineer. No longer claim that traitor

Eric Church is cancelled.

It also pissed me off that they used the Linn Cone Viaduct in their entrance video.

Just another bandwagon fan. We all know them, those who went to App but cheered hard for UNC as their first school. The scum of the earth.

I CAN’T believe he didn’t write into the agreement to use his likeness to not use it for this game. Unbelievable, but not surprising. :roll:

I’m a big fan of his music but that was low. He should have told them not to use his intro at our game. They would have never missed him. Based on the UNC fan reaction they don’t give a crap about him. I have a friend who loves Church and love UNC and he even said it was low. Church shunned the place that would have loved him for a place that couldn’t care less about him.

When are fans going to realize that just because he attended Appalachian doesn't make him one of us? He has proven that over and over again and will continue to do so..

Dead Horse. Let's just get over him. He's certainly gotten over us.
