A few quick thought:
- RIP either Joe Tessitore and Rod Gilmore being on the Friday night game. I'm not sure if ESPN had a more entertaining duo calling mundane Army vs Ball State game.

- I am happy to see Gilmore being promoted to a Saturday afternoon game. He deserved a promotion.

- I'm not happy Tessitore is stuck again with Millen. Just pair him with Gilmore and make us all happy again.

- Really not that many changes this season which is actually kinda refreshing.

- I'm surprised Giants announcer Dave Flemming isn't working an ESPN game. I assumed since he quit his job as the radio voice of Stanford football he would get an ESPN game. I'm going to have to assume he's going to become the main voice for football for the Pac-12 Network. I would like to watch the Pac-12 Network, but they're in a petty feud right now with my cable provider.

Should be a great year for college football!


  1. The Friday night game went to a must watch to a must avoid. Blackburn and Kannell are both equally terrible.

  2. Looking at that, I'm glad ESPN has kept Holly Rowe around for this long, because...well, I've always liked Holly Rowe. There, I said it.

    1. I like Holly Rowe because she's so easy to make fun of. Especially when she wears heavy makeup and wears the leather jacket making her look like a biker babe.

  3. There's SHOCKING news in the sports betting industry.

    It's been said that any bettor must watch this,
