In the terms of the deal, Fox has game selection advantage over ESPN. So fully expect to see THE GAME on Fox for the next few years, which undoubtedly will lead to Gus Johnson and [newly hired] Chris Speilman to be calling the game.

That broadcast duo was announced by Fox a couple weeks back.

Say what you will about a Buckeye in the booth for that game, but Spielman is excellent and objective, IMHO.

I hate ESPN and was hoping they would be left out.
