Former Nittany Lion Standout Blackledge Returns to ESPN College
How did I miss this announcement?! Todd Blackledge, perhaps the greatest quarterback ever at Penn State is leaving CBS for ESPN. He will be doing Saturday night games with Mike Patrick, who got bounced from NFL games in favor of Al Michaels Mike Tirico. I guess that means Ron Franklin is either gone or reassigned; it will be weird hearing someone else in his spot.

The primetime broadcast means Blackledge will probably still do a lot of SEC games, just like when he was on CBS.

Of course, I would be remiss if I did not mention that the sideline reporter will be Holly Rowe, I know that is the most important piece of information for one regular reader.
