ESPN's "College GameDay" program doesn't begin until Saturday morning, but we've already gotten a look at what will be the best sign displayed on the show. 

E. Gordon Gee, the current president of West Virginia University - the location for ESPN's on-site college football show this week - has drawn up a sign aimed at the Mountaineers' opponent, No. 7 TCU.

Back in 2010, Gee, then the president at Ohio State, took a shot at TCU and Boise State, saying they didn't play a tough enough schedule to warrant a spot in the BCS National Championship Game.

"Well, I don't know enough about the X's and O's of college football," Gee said in an interview with the Associated Press. "I do know, having been both a Southeastern Conference president and a Big Ten president, that it's like murderer's row every week for these schools. We do not play the Little Sisters of the Poor. We play very fine schools on any given day.

"So I think until a university runs through that gantlet that there's some reason to believe that they not be the best teams to [be] in the big ballgame."

The No. 7-ranked Horned Frogs are set to take on Gee's No. 20-ranked Mountaineers at 3:30 p.m. E.T. The game will be televised on ABC/ESPN2.
