    QB Santino Marucci

    Since its been about 15 years, I think that we're ready for another Santino on the roster.

    SSO on HM is going with it, so that should be confirmation.

    Fox moving top game to 11am slot

    I'd be getting a hotel if I had that long of drive. If you don't want to pay the Lincoln prices game weekend prices (or the require 2 nights), you could probably get something in York for dirt cheap.

    Assume Rob Stone will be anchoring the show. I've always like Stone and thought he has done an excellent job hosting Fox's CFB, CBB, and World Cup stuff the past couple years. I mean how can you not like a guy who does this?

    Fox tried the big pregame show a handful of years ago when they brought over Erin Andrews from ESPN. No one watched it then and it was dropped after 1 year. And if I had to bet no one will be tuning in to see Meyer, Linehart, and Bush.

    Fox moving top game to 11am slot

    11am games tend to suck for recruiting and general atmosphere (although Severe has been ranting that the 06 Texas game was 11am and was one of the loudest in memory). But from a sitting at home and watching standpoint, I like 11am games better than 2:30 games.

    Also a peek on how the sausage is made in the article "As you know, we share rights with ESPN for three of the five power conferences [Big 10, Pac 12, Big 12]," Mulvihill said. "The way that those rights are allocated is that the conferences themselves don’t decide what games will be on what network. That’s unlike the NFL, where there’s an NFL broadcasting department that puts the schedule together and they decide that Packers-Patriots is going to be on NBC and Cowboys-Eagles is going to be on Fox at 4:25. That’s a collaborative process, but in the end the NFL makes those decisions. "In the college draft, the conferences put together a game schedule [with the dates] but then we and ESPN sit down and actually choose game windows in the Spring where we’ll say — and we have the number one pick in the Big Ten draft — we’re going to take the first selection on November 24th. We pick that date obviously with an eye toward it being Ohio State-Michigan, but we don’t literally take Ohio State-Michigan. We just take the right to have the first choice on November 24th. And then ESPN will choose the right to have the first choice on a week in September. And we’ll come back and use our first pick in the Big 12 to take the number one pick in the first week of October which will be Texas-Oklahoma." Mulvihill says the process of slotting games and who gets what matchups can be exhausting for networks. "As the season goes on we’ll say, Okay we’re up to Week 7. We have the first pick. We’re going to use that first pick on Michigan-Michigan State," Mulvihill said. "ESPN then has the second pick, and they [hypothetically] thought they were going to use it on Penn State-Iowa, but because events on the field are unpredictable they’re actually going to use it on Wisconsin-Northwestern. Because you’re drafting windows and not actual games, once you get to the season in progress and you’re surprised by which teams are better than you thought and which teams aren’t as good as you expected, you can adjust and make sure that you’re getting the best game in the best window."
  12. For college football fans within the Big Ten and Big 12, you may want to look away. FOX, which has first television dibs on all Big Ten games and several Big 12 contests this fall, plans to place its top matchup every Saturday in the noon timeslot, according to New York Post reporter Andrew Marchand. This is the network's latest attempt to unseat ESPN's College GameDay and the Worldwide Leader's early game as go-to programming for fans. Urban Meyer, Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart are among the new analysts being ask to lead FOX's revitalized college football efforts as the media company tries to combat ESPN and CBS Sports for viewership. https://247sports.com/Article/College-football-2019-schedule-Big-Ten-Big-12-FOX-media-rights-132020272/
