College GameDay apologizes for inappropriate signs

College GameDay really has become the Saturday morning frat party of ESPN’s broadcasts. It’s loose and edgy–a big part of that is due to the ever-climbing trend of getting a trash-talking sign on national television.

It was only a matter of time before a sign or two rubbed too many people the wrong way, and lead The Worldwide Leader In Sports to issue an apology.

ESPN came under fire following Saturday’s broadcast because of two signs that they let on the air. One was a sexist comment on Ole Miss female students.

The second was a sign that took an underhanded stab at OSU coach Urban Meyer and heart problems he suffered from a couple years back. The sign garnered negative attention, and backlash from Meyer’s wife and daughters.

College GameDay issued an apology after deleting the Meyer tweet.

This isn’t the first time ESPN has raised eyebrows because of some of the signage they have deemed appropriate for the braodcast. While we’re pretty sure the signs aren’t going anywhere–heck, people will do anything to get on TV–hopefully College GameDay starts filtering through what they’re broadcasting with a bit more sensetivity.
