2014 ESPN College Football Announcers

We are getting closer and closer to college football returning. The latest sign of that is ESPN, the dominant force in college football on television, announcing their commentator crews for 2014.

Not to be outdone by the Athletics' bold move this morning, the Detroit Tigers made a little noise of their own close to the trade deadline this afternoon by piecing together a blockbuster three-team trade to acquire David Price from Tampa Bay.
