Trick Shot Monday Showdown

Oct 9, 2012, 5:27 PM EDT

Who would have ever thought Trick Shot Monday would come so far from its humble beginnings?

First, it was featured as the #2 play on Sportscenter’s Top 10. Last week, NFL Films captured Braxston Cave’s header, and yesterday, the TSM crew had a special guest, in anticipation of College GameDay’s broadcast from campus on Saturday morning.

This week’s fun all began on Sunday night, when GameDay reporter Samantha Steele issued a bit of a Twitter challenge to Irish guard Mike Golic Jr., one of the “Founding Fathers” of TSM.

After the team’s weekly Monday afternoon meetings, she joined the crew in the Isban Auditorium at the Gug, and well, have a look for yourself.

While you might have to wait until Saturday for the rest of the video, trust me when I say – you will not be disappointed. Though I haven’t seen the finished ESPN feature, having witnessed the winning shot and ensuing celebration, I’m confident it will be worth the wait.

Samantha was not in town for long, as she’s the sideline reporter for the Arizona State-Colorado game on Thursday night, but she and the rest of the GameDay team will be on campus this Friday as they prep for Saturday’s show. Stay tuned to the blog, Facebook and Twitter for more on GameDay in the coming days.
