ROBOTS!

But hey, look at the bright side. If you're looking to score some blow, Chris Meyers should be somewhere in Indy next December.

I just hope they show the whole game and don't come back from commercial in the middle of drives.  Guess ESPN blew their wad on the whole SEC on ESPN thing.

I'd rather watch the dancing futuristic football robots fellate Bo Schembechler than listen to Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis. Hopefully they'll get Gus to do play-by-play and throw a fat stack of cash at Spielman to do analysis.

thom brennaman can be difficult to listen to, but he's a big supporter of Ohio State so I have no problem with him...

Gus and Spiels would be a dream team.  

As much as I hate the thought of it, I think Millen would be in the mix as well.  He works for ESPN and the NFL net right now, but obviously neither are exclusive deals like Herbie would have.

WHAT? Millen doesn't have an exclusive contract?! WHAAAAA?!

Taquitos.

Perhaps the start of something HUGE. Could Fox look for a slice of the weekly college football pie and offer Big Ten a mega-deal when our ABC deal is done?

This is the suckiest piece of Big Ten football news all year. Fox does a horrifically bad job of broadcasting college football.

Who else are we going to get?  The NBC Notre Dame crew?  The Verne Lundquist/Gary Danielson SEC slobberfest on CBS?  Plus, ABC-ESPN is about as incestuous as it can be as it controls virtually everything about college football.

I loathe FOX, both for its worldview and for its deplorable coverage of sporting events, but BTN is part of it so I guess it makes perfect flippin' sense.

Why wouldn't fox will get Eddie George to do this?  Doesn't he do stuff for them right now?

And I'm only thinking of the half time when they have the two former Cowboy coaches and Eddie which was weird.....DERP!
