  1. Who replaces John Saunders in studio?

    1. No word yet but I would guess you could see Scott Van Pelt filling in.

    2. I really thought it would be SVP too because of his history with ESPN but they have chosen Stan Verrett to take on this role

    3. Guess he's off Thursday/Friday because he has to fly from LA to New York.

  2. Good teams ESPN has and a team that is very good on FOX Sports for College Football that I wish got some better games to announce is the Tim Brando/Spencer Tillman team. Great announcing team and they call a great game, like Burkhardt and Lynch do for the NFL on FOX.
