Ooooh....just typing that headline just got me all excited. You know it's almost time for College Football Season when ESPN starts rolling out all of it's programming on the Sport. Hey, and lookie here....this time it's with 100% Brent Musburger! Well at least for the first two shows.....
ESPN’s College Football Live, a weekday afternoon studio show dedicated to college football which debuted last year, will return Monday, July 21, and will now be aired year-round. Brent Musburger will host the first two shows live from ESPN headquarters in Bristol, Conn.Year round? I approve! Also there's a whole set of great guests starting next week including but limited to: Jim Tressel, ABobby Petrino, Bobby Bowden, Les Miles, Rich Rodriguez, Pete Carroll, Phil Fulmer, Mark Richt, Tim Tebow, Texas Tech QB Graham Harrell, Pitt RB LeSean McCoy and Kansas QB Todd Reesing.
The 30-minute program will be aired each weekday at 3:30 p.m. ET with primary host Rece Davis and some of the most knowledgeable and experienced college football analysts. The show will examine every aspect of the game with highlights, analysis, breaking news, features, press conferences, interviews and more. ESPNU’s recruiting trail will also take a weekly look at the recruiting battles over top high school football players. In addition, the program will now be aired year round; last season’s show ceased production in January.
Not a bad list. The show kicks off as I said above with Musburger in the saddle along with Jesse Palmer and Todd Blackledge. Rece Davis will be your host on July 23rd and the show will feature the likes of Palmer, Blackledge, Mark May, Desmond Howard, Andre Ware, Bob Griese, Trevor Mattich, Rod Gilmore throughout the season.
