Let's go over the changes first:
-Chris Spielman is replacing Matt Millen as Sean McDonough's partner for the ABC afternoon games.
-Brian Griese will replace Spielman with Dave Pasch for the ESPN morning game.
-Millen will work with Joe Tessitore on a select Primetime package on ESPN
-Carter Blackburn will replace Tessitore on Friday nights.
-Ed Cunningham will now work with Mike Patrick on ABC afternoon games
-Danny Kanell (who used to work with Pam Ward, RIP Pammy's college football days) will also move to the ABC afternoon games with Bob Wischusen*.
*If you're counting at home. All three ABC afternoon games have new analysts.
-David Pollack replaces Craig James on the Thursday night game to work alongside Rece Davis and Jesse Palmer
-Joey Galloway will work the ESPN 2 Noon crappy Big Ten game with Beth Mowins.
- A new team of Tom Hart and John Congemi will now call the ESPNU noon game.
- Brock Huard replaces Bob Davie on the ESPN2 night game with Mark Jones.
-Matt Stinchcomb will call the ESPNU primetime game with Clay Matvick
I feel bad for Joe Tessitore. He's a genuinely good announcer and now he's stuck with Millen. I also feel bad for Cunningham who is now stuck with Mike Patrick. I feel good for McDonough who doesn't have to work with Millen anymore. I don't care much for Blackburn so I don't know how much of the Friday night games I'll watch now. It's nice seeing a Griese with Pasch again on the morning game.
Also of note this is going to be weird not having Pam in our lives. Pam Ward has been a part of my life since 2006 when I really started following college football in a hardcore way. She was soooooooo bad she was good. RIP Pammy.
