Back On The BTN
My man Richard Broad and I are reunited Sunday afternoon for the start of another season broadcasting college soccer on the Big Ten Network. We’ll be calling the men’s game between the last two conference champs, Ohio State (4-3-0 4-0-3) and Michigan State (4-1-1), which starts at 2:30pm ET but won’t air until 4pm ET (so you can bag all those plans you had to watch the NFL).
I’m not sure this will be a pretty game, but I’m interested to see Ohio State’s young attackers (Chris Hegngi and Austin McAnena, both freshmen) – against the Spartans’ stout defense (GK Avery Steinlage had an NCAA-record consecutive shutout minutes streak snapped recently).
Also, a game I wish we were broadcasting takes place tonight in Madison, where first-year Badgers’ head coach Todd Yeagley faces his alma mater, Indiana in the first conference game of the year.
