    Very moving stuff. They're at the USAFA today and they had a nice open with shots of Army and Air Force cadets standing silently as Chris Fowler made comments about Veteran's Day and the tragedy of this week. Then three F-16s made a fly-over of the GameDay set. Pretty emotional.

    That campus is beautiful, with the chapel standing tall in front of the Rampart Range. God bless all our brave servicemembers and veterans!

    The cadets had some great signs as well in 2007 when we played AFA at Clune Arena...

    That was the coolest opening I've seen in a long time. Shows the academy in a great light!

    They have the set in a great spot with the chapel and the mountains in the background.

    Saw that, too. Thought that was interesting. He's gotta hate where the program has been the last few years.

    Interesting part of the opening. They recorded bits of all of us cheering before they came on the air. When they announced that there would be an opening statement by Obama the crowd went from loud and excited to dead silent and annoyed. Not making a statement on that, only saying it was interesting to see the mood change
