ESPN College GameDay names Ken Griffey Jr and Brett Favre as celebrity pickers for Notre Dame-FSU game.

What could possibly be the most awkward edition of ESPN College GameDay possibly just got more awkward. It was bad enough that GameDay is broadcasting from Florida State, where controversies surrounding starting quarterback Jameis Winston have been swirling around the football program like a Seminole Wind this weekend. Now it's been reported that Ken Griffey Jr and Brett Favre have been    chosen to be the obligatory GameDay's celebrity game pickers this weekend.

Favre only one obvious connection to FSU - the infamous sexting incident involving former New York Jets "Gameday host" and FSU Cowgirl Jenn Sterger.

In light of the allegations of FSU interfering with the police investigation of sexual assault allegations brought against Winston, this could be one of the most tone-deaf moments in ESPN history.
