"The University of Illinois is also in turmoil. The university sports an Interim Chancellor, an Interim Athletic Director, and an Interim Football Coach; the game will be played at Soldier Field, making this an Illini Interim Home Game."
ESPN released their broadcast pairings for the 2013 college football season. Not much changes. Brian Griese still doing the ESPN afternoon broadcast with Dave Pasch, Sean McDonough/Chris Spielman for one of the ABC Saturday afternoon games, Brad Nessler/Todd Blackledge on the ESPN Saturday Primetime game, and Musberger/Herbstreit on the ABC Saturday Primetime game. The biggest change is Friday night is now Carter Blackburn and Danny Kanell which is a huge downgrade from the days of Joe Tess and Rod Gilmore.
For Michigan, we will probably draw Musberger/Herbstreit for Notre Dame, Joe Tess/Matt Millen or Nessler/Blackledge for PSU, and McDonough/Spielman for Ohio State. So we are probably going to have PSU and OSU alums calling color for both games. Fun.
Screw it! I was on my way to the gym buuuuuuutttt...well!
Chris Spielman just finished up on ESPN:
"I'm not surprised, I mean you hear things and I believe that Coach for whatever reason and it's mysterious to a lot folks who follow this football team why he catered to Terrelle. And why there are a different set of rules for Terrelle Pryor. I have no idea why and that's the big mystery to me."
"More disturbing to me is that there's not a player or senior or leader on that football team that does not hear about the shenanigans that was going on with Terrelle and they didn't step up to stop it..."
He went on to mention the trouble Gene Smith is facing as more information surfaces.
I think we know why TP didn't come to A2. The deal just wasn't good enough!
Thanks to poster Ducatidoc for the motivation and money quote (above) from TP. =)
