Did you know that Ole Miss and Baylor are scheduled to meet in the 2020 AdvoCare Texas Kickoff? That has all the earmarks of a real classic, assuming there are enough scholarship players left at both schools to suit up.
Speaking of which, that could lead to a scenario where the Black Bear Rebels (or is it the Rebel Black Bears?) take a serious hit in the pocketbook. Hey, just because schools aren’t proactive doesn’t mean Mickey ain’t.
According to Mickey’s Power Football Index, college football’s top team as you read this is Ohio State, fresh off a pounding — at home — by Oklahoma.
Methinks your computer needs a tuneup, fellas.
Just remember that the next time some wayward troll decides to spout G-Day QBR numbers at you in the comments.
A reader thought it would be worth mentioning that ESPN’s going all out with tonight’s broadcast of the Indiana-Ohio State game.
ESPN will unleash its MegaCast production for Ohio State at Indiana on Thursday, Aug. 31 (8 p.m. ET), beginning the 2017 college football season with the most extravagant regular-season game presentation the sport has ever experienced. The multi-network creation will feature the traditional telecast on ESPN and six alternate offerings for fans on ESPNU, ESPNEWS and ESPN3. All previous versions of ESPN’s MegaCast have been reserved for the College Football Playoff Semifinals and National Championship games.
For one low, low price, you get Coaches Film Room (Les Miles!), what sounds like an abominable idea with Homers Telecast and a ton of camera angles and stats on ESPN3, in addition to Herbstreit on the main broadcast.
I can’t say I’m a huge fan of Mack Brown, but the other coaches ought to be good for some insight on the Coaches Film Room. Plus, they’ll be skipping some commercials — never a bad thing. The Homers thing sounds like it’s definitely worth avoiding, but I’ve enjoyed the All-22 looks before when CBS has used them.
Anyway, what’s your thought, useful or overkill? (If you’re a the Big Ten is dead to me kind of person, you needn’t bother to answer.)
I’m the last person who thought it was possible to feel sympathy for the WWL, but Clay Travis seems bound and determined to prove me capable of it. Sheesh, what a dick.
Be still, my heart.
Saturday’s game will be broadcast on ESPN. Mike Patrick and Tommy Tuberville will have the call.
Between Patrick wondering what Brittney Spears is doing with her life and the potential for Tubs to give Kirby coaching advice on how to succeed in the SEC, this has all the earmarks of an instant classic.
Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends.
According to the report, he is adding weekly in-studio “SportsCenter” segments. His four-hour radio/TV gig also will add an hour.
The network will fly Finebaum from his Saturday “SEC Nation” campus pregame show to Connecticut every weekend during the season, giving him a high-profile perch on Sunday morning “SportsCenter” episodes to analyze the college football weekend.
I can only hope that one day we’ll look back on this and wonder what in the hell Mickey was thinking.
