The Brand Spanking New Big 10 Network Sets Its Announcing Lineup

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

This post will probably matter to about 3 of you, but I don't discriminate. The newly formed Big 10 Network released it's announcing and studio teams and a few AA favorites (sarcastic) made the cut.

The studio team will be ex-ESPN anchor Dave Revsine, Gerry DiNardo (an ex-Notre Damer and XFL coach) and former Bronco Howard Griffith.

The in-booth festivities will be led by Mr. Thom Brennaman and analyzed by an AA staple...."Mangina" himself....Charles Davis! Oh joy!!! The backup team consists of Chris Martin (?) and is backed by Chicago Bulls Announcer Wayne Larrivee and ex-Minnesota Coach Glen Mason.

Considering the only cable companies currently committed to carry the B10N are mom and pop operations with subscriber bases that you could count with 2 hands, it doesn't matter who will calling the games. It could be the ghosts of Woody and Bo doing the PBP, and no one would know...

I think I speak for everyone when I say, "Oy." Who, again, thought this was a good idea?

Thom Brenneman is too big for this network.

Thom Brenneman, son of Marty Brenneman, feel the Brennemania.

Does anybody besides me wonder where is Barry Alvarez? He did much better than Charles Davis in both games (Fiesta and BCS title game).

He is supposed to be FOX's BCS analyst, I wonder why he isn't on here?

Charlie Davis prepared so much for his Fiesta Bowl gig. Right? Isn't that what somebody wrote in the comments of this blog?\

I guess Charlie was too beautiful for Fox, ABC, and ESPN.

So, what is the over/under for the number of times Charlie says a quarterback can have a run/pass option during the first week highlights package.

Charlie, you stay classy, buddy. Your hard work and natural talent will get a you back in the broadcasting booth. We know your insight into football extends beyond saying the quarterback has a run/pass option on every freakin' down.

I don't see an 11 hidden anywhere in the Big ten network logo.
