I finally got a hold of ESPN's Week One Announcing Schedule for you and it's full of familiar faces and a few interesting surprises. A lot of the teams are the same from last year, including Ward-Bentley, Pasch-Ware, Franklin-Cunningham and Patrick-Blackledge. There are some significant changes though, and here's what I noticed....
- Everyone welcome Shaun King and ex-Washington Husky, Brock Huard to the mix!
- Huard is with Bob Wischusen Week One. It'll be interesting to see if Bob will be back on ABC games, or stick with ESPN2 contests.
- Jesse Palmer is with Fowler and James for Week One. Not sure if Doug Flutie was dropped yet or not.
- Good old Pam is back on the early Big Ten contest. Let's hope there aren't any technical difficulties this year.
If I missed anything let me know. Here's your schedule minus the ABC games, which will be filled in shortly....
