Whereas I’m certain he could make this work, working GameDay means a really tight 12 hour or so window working WWE SmackDown on Friday night time and School GameDay on Saturday morning. Together with month-to-month WWE pay-per-views the place the following three present are going down on a Saturday, together with one in Saudi Arabia, which can require some leniency on WWE and/or ESPN’s finish. And that doesn’t embody The Pat McAfee Present plus working six faculty soccer simulcasts for Peyton Manning’s Omaha Productions on ESPN2.
Regardless, it’s a wise transfer by ESPN to rent McAfee, who shouldn’t be solely entertaining in entrance of the digital camera however he is aware of what he’s speaking about and is widespread with college-aged folks. Add the truth that Lee Corso is getting up there in age, I’m not saying McAfee goes in addition Corso out anytime quickly but it surely wouldn’t harm ESPN to have choices for when it occurs as a result of Corso is not going to be simple to switch.[New York Post]
