Kudos need to go out to reader and tipster extraordinaire SS for this masterpiece. Our friend took the time (it may or may not have something to do with his job) to compile the pairings for every major network’s set of games AND those on FSN, ESPNU, CSTV, VS, and The Big Ten Network!!! That my friends is awesome.

(*- Not confirmed, but will most likely call the game.)

A few things stand out. First and foremost……Colin Cowherd with Chris Spielman is the Perfect (S**t) Storm. Guess who’s going out late on Friday night! Second, Pam and Mike have been told to go to separate corners. That kinda makes me sad. And third…..SURPRISE! Larry Coker got a Miami game!!! Who would have guessed it.

Leave your initial reactions in the comments, and I’ll see you Thursday for the Opening Live-Blog of the season! Tulsa at UL-Monroe!!!!!!!

(Just kidding….it’s LSU-MSU)
