Quick Tirico Show Update.....

Earlier today I posted that Scott Van Pelt would be a contributor to the Mike Tirico Show, but ESPN is now saying that he'll have a more prominent role. He will be appearing on a "regular basis" and Tafoya and Herbstreit are being referred to as "regular contributors".

Scott Van Pelt is also the official substitute which differs from the Star-Tribune report which I linked earlier that hinted that Tafoya would be.

Also, Tirico is doing the show from Syracuse University today and Stephen A. Smith isn't going to start until Monday. Rats.

P.S.- No mention of Michigan or any athlete from the State.

Update: Tirico just mentioned that he's a Detroit Tigers fan. If you had the Over of 20 minutes.....you win!

there are going to be 3 co-hosts.

they have announced the first two -- van pelt and herbstreit.

I would assume the third is Tafoya.

I suspect that, secretly, half of ESPN hates Rutgers, BC, and Penn State. Stealing all of those guys who should be going to the Cuse!
