Week # 7 – College football will be hot and heavy; CBS has #2 Alabama at #6 Tenn; 3:30 ET

I don’t how many more Tenn-Alabama games remaining for the 65+ crew, Brad Nessler and Gary Danielson. But this Saturday’s could be their last.

Bob Wischusen has a a game at Ole Miss for ESPN and Sunday, Jets at Green Bay. His ESPN partner is also overbearing, Dan Orlovsky.

Noah Eagle, Ian’s son, has an excellent future. Still, does he already deserve an FS1 primetime gig? Maybe or maybe not. Unsure. I know he’s Ian’s son. Yet, he made it totally on his own.

Dave Flemming can do anything and does everything, Giants, college football and basketball. The two Daves are both excellent, Flemming and O’Brien!

J.B. Long, a longtime talk-show host, does Cal at Colorado for the Pac12 Network Saturday and Sunday does NFL’s Rams and visitors Carolina Panthers. Too much already.

Is this the same
