Couple of observations:

*Sports USA has decided to name only play-by-play announcers. Why not put the names of color analysts in there, too? I'm sure they won't be working by themselves.
*Also, put an asterisk on the Dec. 20 New Mexico Bowl. Looks like the same announcers on radio and TV.

ESPN Radio, don't involve C---n C-----d in any of your bowl coverage. Is that asking too much?

Desmond, according to a The506 board commenter, ALL the ESPN Radio broadcasts will be simulcasts with ESPN TV thru December 27. The WWL evidently figures, why pay an extra PBP guy for these meaningless games when the TV talent can just pull double-duty.

Erin Andrews ... on the radio??? WTF.
From the sun-splashed Rose Bowl, in her glorious blonde locks, oh, the humanity!

I hate to be a pessimist AA, but the current system sucks and the only college football game worth anything is Friday's matchup between Richmond and Montana.

2 things: How DARE they put Erin Andrews on the radio? She's still 1000 times better than anyone on television. Also, will Brent Musburger start the National Championship saying, "YOU are listening LIVE..." That would be weird.

Brad James, shut up. No one cares about your thoughts on a college football playoff.

Larry Kahn is not doing the Las Vegas Bowl - it'll be Eli Gold.

Whoohoo, Pammy's got another bowl game after all!

It's bad enough you can't understand what she's trying to describe on TV as you're seeing it, I can only imagine how bad it will be when there is no picture.

For the sake of outrageous completeness: ESPN's Dave Lamont will call the Motor City Bowl for FAU's radio "network" (one station in Ft Lauderdale that broadcasts at about 3 watts after dark.)
