ESPN Networks Announce Broadcast Schedule For Week 11 Of College Football’s 2018 Season

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN has announced its broadcast schedule for Week 11 of the 2018 college football season.

This week’s schedule features a number of games that have major playoff implications.  One of the most notable of the week’s games is an ACC matchup between undefeated No. 2 Clemson and No. 22 Boston College.  The headlining Saturday Night Football game is scheduled to air live at 8 p.m. Saturday on ABC.

ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will set up the game Saturday morning starting at 9 a.m.  It will broadcast live from the campus of Boston College.  Saturday’s broadcast marks the first time since 2009 that College GameDay Built by the Home Depot has aired from Boston College.

The Eagles are 4-1 in ACC play and second to Clemson in the ACC’s Atlantic Division.  The matchup is critical in Clemson’s search for a division (and conference) title, and for the team’s hopes for a spot in this year’s College Football playoffs.

Other key matchups featured in this week’s schedule are No. 7 Oklahoma taking on Oklahoma State at 3:30 p.m. on ABC and No. 8 Washington State on the road against Colorado at the same time on ESPN.  Both games have their own importance to this year’s college football playoffs impacts.

Also, if the Sooners and Cougars each win their games, they will play in their respective conference title games.  A win for either team additionally puts each group in good position to be considered for the playoffs.

Georgia hosts Auburn at 7 p.m. on ESPN in yet another key matchup for Week 11. ESPN2 will feature yet another big game at noon as UCF and Navy (AAC) face off in Florida.  The Knights have the nation’s longest winning streak while the Midshipmen are coming off a loss to Cincinnati in Week 10, so they will be hungry to get back in the “W” column, and to stop the Knights’ streak.

The full schedule of this week’s games is noted below.

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN’s flagship college football program is coming home…sort of.

College GameDay Built by The Home Depot returns to South Bend, Indiana and the campus of Notre Dame for its season premiere this Saturday, September 1.  The 10-time Emmy Award-winning program will air live from Libery Quad starting at 9 a.m., preceding the Fighting Irish’s annual showdown with rivals, the Michigan Wolverines.

The program will be simulcast Saturday (and each week) on ESPNU.  Notre Dame head coach Brian Kelly will appear on the special broadcast, which comes 25 years after the very first College GameDay broadcast.  marty Smith will interview Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh as he enters his fourth season coaching at his alma mater.

Other topics slated for Saturday’s broadcast include who will be Alabama’s new quarterback and the wake of Washington State quarterback Tyler Hilinski’s death.

ESPN Moving ‘NBA Countdown’ Back To L.A.; Announces Programming Changes For ‘SportsCenter,’ Other Shows

Courtesy: ESPN

ESPN’s NBA Countdown is headed back to the West Coast.

The network’s flagship NBA studio show is returning to ESPN’s Los Angeles Production Center for its upcoming season.  The change is in line with ESPN’s new NBA post-game show NBA After The Buzzer, which will feature the NBA Countdown broadcast team.

The return of NBA Countdown to its Los Angeles studio marks the first time since the 2010-2011 season that it has aired from the West Coast.  It moved to the East Coast in the 2011-’12 season and has been there ever since.

Along with the announcement of the show’s move back to Los Angeles, ESPN also announced that Michelle Beadle will leave her job as host of ESPN’s weekday morning show Get Up! and will expand her role in ESPN’s NBA coverage.  Her last appearance on Get Up! will be August 29.

Connor Schell, ESPN Executive Vice President of Content, said he was optimistic about the changes coming to ESPN’s NBA coverage, including the extension of Beadle’s contract and the expansion of her role in the network’s NBA coverage.

“We are extremely excited to launch ESPN’s first ever NBA post-game show,” Schell said.  “We’re doubling down on our NBA studio content at a time when the NBA is red hot and fan interest continues to surge, and we are doing it with Michelle, as she is so important to our coverage.  As the basketball world looks to L.A. with renewed interest, we’ll be right there to cover it.”

As an added bonus for audiences, the increased interest in the NBA noted by Schell has also led ESPN officials to expand The Jump, ESPN’s daily Los Angeles-based NBA studio show hosted by Rachel Nichols, to a full one-hour format.

Other changes that are being made at ESPN, partly due to the network’s changes in its NBA coverage include the expansion of Get Up! to a two-hour show starting Sept. 3.  Starting on that day, it will air from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m. ET.  Mike Greenberg will still host the show and Jalen  Rose will also stay on as co-host on days when he does not have to appear on NBA Countdown.

Maria Taylor, Laura Rutledge, Diana Russini and Jen Lada — each of whom has served as guest host on Get Up! — will all continue to serve as contributors to the program.

During football season, ESPN’s NFL and college football commentators will appear on Get Up! in its expanded time slot.  That list of talent includes: Ryan Clark, Victor Cruz, Paul Finebaum, Dan Orlovsky, Jesse Palmer, Louis Riddick, Rex Ryan, Adam Schefter, Marcus Spears, Jonathan Vilma and Damien Woody.

One more change coming to the ESPN networks involves ESPN Radio’s Golic & Wingo.  Along with continuing on ESPN Radio, it will be simulcast on ESPN2 and ESPNEWS from 6 a.m. – 8 a.m. before moving solely to ESPNEWS from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.  This move is also set to happen on Sept. 3.

By connection, SportsCenter will continue to air on ESPN2 from 8 a.m. – 10 a.m.

Adelitas Way Signs New Management Deal With FM Music Management

Courtesy: O’Donnell Media Group

Veteran rock band Adelitas Way has signed a new management deal.

The band signed a new deal this week with FM Music Management.  The artist management company’s roster includes other big names such as Nonpoint (whose new album X is scheduled to be released this Friday, August 24 via Spinefarm Records), Kataklysm, Through Fire, Royal Bliss, Deadset Society, Keith Wallen, Spoken and others.

FMM Partner/Manager Dino Kourelis talked about the band’s addition to the agency’s roster in a recent interview.  He said he was glad to have the band as part of the agency’s roster.

“We are excited to bring Adelitas Way in to the FM Management family,” Kourelis said.  “Adelitas Way continues to evolve and push the envelope in rock, and and Rick’s [DeJesus — Adelitas Way front man] passion and work ethic is unrivaled.  We look forward to helping them continue to climb.”

DeJesus shared Kourelis’ thoughts.

“My vision for Adelitas Way is clear and the mission is clear,” DeJesus said.  “We are going to continue to master our craft and grow to a point that is part of setting an example for all artists who see our story!  That takes a great team.  I’m excited for Fuel Music/the Vegas Syn to combine powers with an innovative, forward thinking company with my friend Frank Mastalerz leading the way with FM Music Management.  He has built an amazing team of music peers I’ve been working with for many years, and I’m looking forward to more exciting opportunities to grow.  Let’s do what we do best.”

Adelitas Way originally formed in 2006 and released its debut self-titled album in 2009 via Virgin Records.  That record was followed up in 2011 with its sophomore album Home School Valedictorian, which was released, also via Virgin Records.  Stuck, the band’s third album, was released in 2014, and would be its last for Virgin Records.

Its fourth album, 2016’s Getaway, was its first for The Vegas Syn/Fuel Music.  Notorious followed more than a year later in October 2017.  It was also released via the Vegas Syn/Fuel Music.

Adelitas Way’s music has been featured on television in various ways throughout its career.  That includes being featured in various WWE programs (and even in at least one WWE video game) and NFL programs on ESPN and FOX.  It has even been featured in an episode of CBS’ CSIMiami.

Adelitas Way will join Fozzy on the road starting this Saturday, August 25 in Birmingham, Alabama for the latest leg of Fozzy’s tour in support of its most recent album Judas (2017).  Also joining the band as suppor for Fozzy are The Stir and Stone Broken, which will be touring in support of its latest album Ain’t Always Easy (released April 13 via Spinefarm Records).

Victor Cruz Announces NFL Retirement, Addition To ESPN Talent Roster

ESPN has added another former NFL star to its roster as the start of the 2018-’19 season nears.

Victor Cruz has joined the network’s talent lineup.  A former wide receiver with the New York Giants, Cruz also has a Super Bowl title to his name and a spot in the 2012 NFL Pro Bowl.

The announcement of Cruz’s addition to ESPN’s talent roster came today as he announced that after seven years in the league, he had decided to retire from the game.  That announcement of his retirement came on Uninterrupted.  Cruz said in a prepared statement that he was looking forward to joining ESPN’s ranks.

“As I officially close one chapter of my life and begin another, I could not be more thrilled to join another championship team at ESPN,” Cruz said.  “I’m excited to get started and share my insight and analysis with the viewers and fans of the NFL.”

Courtesy: ESPN

Seth Markman, ESPN’s Senior Coordinating Producer of NFL studio programming, said he was looking forward to Cruz joining the network, too.

“Victor is passionate about the NFL, and we’ve long been impressed with his ability to connect and engage with fans,” Markman said.  “He has a deep knowledge of the game and experience playing at the highest levels, so we expect him to be an impactful voice.”

Cruz joined the Giants in 2010 as an undrafted free agent from UMass.  In only his second season (2011-’12 season), Cruz recorded his first 1,000 yard season and even recorded one touchdown in the Giants’ 21-17 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI (46).  From there to the end of his time with the Giants (2016), Cruz totaled 303 catches for 4,549 receiving yards and 25 touchdowns, including an NFL record-tying 99-yard reception in December 2011.

Cruz has appeared on ESPN before, so he is no stranger to the network.  He has presented at the ESPYS, attended ESPN’s Winter X Games and was even part of an ESPN This Is SportsCenter spot in 2014.  Most recently, he served as a guest analyst on ESPN’s NFL Live this past January.

Cruz already co-hosts The Victor Cruz Show with Paul Rivera on Uninterrupted.  The program is a “barbershop talk” style program that focuses on discussions on sports, music and fashion.  He is also one of the first athletes to develop his own content for an all-digital sports programming network founded by NBA star LeBron James and businessman/media personality Maverick Carter.
