It's no use. I gave it my best shot. I'm usually indifferent at worst to the various specials and theme weeks on the show. But I had to stop watching this one after the first pricing game.

I absolutely DETEST the mean-spiritedness of College Rivals Day, especially on Thanksgiving Eve of all days. No contestant should ever win money based solely on other contestants losing.

This idea needs to be buried along with Professor Price in the same dank basement closet.

I'm ok with the theme, but.....what I'm NOT ok with is Beth Mowins doing play by play for the SCSD's. I mean I get why they wanted to include her but.....it just came off super distracting, unnecessary and frankly annoying. I hope they never do that again.

This is the 4th college rivals episode they have done. Texas / Oklahoma is the only matchup to show up on all 4 shows.
Drew has made 3 putts in Hole in One this season , only one other season has he made more ( S43 - he made 5 )
Nice to hear the Triple Play cue used at the beginning of the show.

I agree! I hate these College Rivals episodes, and I refused to even watch this one!

Itís basically the same rivalries EVERY. DAMN. YEAR. I woke up about 45 minutes into the episode and I heard Beth Mowins commentating and I knew I didnít miss anything special.

I absolutely hate these episodes.

I don't mind the rivalries format personally. It's an interesting little wrinkle and because of the rivalries aspect giving the contestant of the school that didn't make it on stage $1,000 if the stage contestant loses isn't a problem to me. March Madness time or before the football national championship makes more sense for airing it, but this is the week a lot of college football rivalries play each other also.

Wonder why they brought in someone from ESPN to do the wheel play by play and not someone from the network's own college football coverage.

As far as themed shows go, I'm indifferent to this one..There are some themed shows that I love and look forward to (Dream Car Week, Big Money Week, Super Bowl, Halloween, Christmas.), there are some themed shows that I hate so much that I boycott them (Mainly playing in pairs or groups shows.) but them some of them are just kind of "there" . For me the college rivals theme is neither here nor there. I don't care about the theme, but I'm not adverse to it either.
Adjustments that should be made to pricing games to make them fairer: Secret X: Add a 3rd SP so that perfect pricing ensures a win. 1/2 Off: Add a 4th set of SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Master Key: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win. Rat Race: Add 2 more SPs so that perfect pricing ensures a win.

The following pricing games should be retired because there's no way or no easy way to make them fair: Spelling Bee, Plinko, Punch a Bunch, Pass the Buck, Let em Roll.

The following retired pricing games should be revived: $uper $aver, Give or Keep, Buy or Sell, Hurdles, Bump, Penny Ante, Credit Card, On the Spot, Split Decision, Add em Up, Walk of Fame, Barker's Markers.

She does work for CBS mainly as a reporter, and unsurprisingly, she's still horrible.

Has done/is doing NFL Games now too actually. I don't exactly have an issue with her though, but her being here felt really really odd/awkward, and detracted from the wheel spinners IMO. It made the $1,000 wins in the 2nd SCSD (especially the first one), come off really badly too because of how she reacted to them.

  • One of the great multitaskers on G-R.net!
James wasn't the male model for today's show; it was Devin, and this show made sense given his football background.

I could do without Beth Mowins; while her play-by-play was a throwback to what Bob did before the contestant shoutouts took over with Drew, it was at times distracting. Also, what was up with the arrow shot not being used in the SCSDs??? It wasn't like they were playing in groups.

If they REALLY wanted to make it interesting, instead of giving the rival school player $1000 if the contestant loses, they should give the money if the contestant WINS. 

It would create a bizarre scenario where an Ohio State fan has to cheer FOR a Michigan contestant.  THAT would be worth watching!!

Would defeat the rivalry purpose though then to do that.
