On Saturday morning, ESPN's College GameDay kicked off from Miami Gardens ahead of a rivalry game between the Miami Hurricanes and Florida State Seminoles.

Each and every weekend, College GameDay features a "GameDay Guest Picker." That person generally has ties to the school from where the show takes place.

ESPN was forced to get creative on Saturday morning, though. Fans hoping to see Ed Reed, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson or some other Hurricanes celebrity alum were disappointed.

Instead, ESPN turned to one of their own. Jon Weiner, who goes by "Stugotz" was the celebrity guest picker for Saturday morning's show.

He's a vital piece of the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz as the name would suggest. Fans who found out he was the guest picker has some interesting reactions.

Of course, fans of the Dan Le Batard Show focused on his appearance.

Stugotz is a beloved member of ESPN, but college football fans who don't watch the Dan Le Batard show likely have no idea who he is. The shows takes place in Miami, where Le Batard and Stugotz live.

He makes for some interesting television and that made for quite a unique morning for college football fans.
