Breaking News: Gus Johnson at Crisler Thursday

The Big Ten Network team of Gus Johnson and Jim Jackson with Mike Hall as the sideline reporter will call the Michigan-Penn State game at Crisler Arena on Thursday night at 7pm.  Gus called the Michigan-Penn State game in State College last month. It is the first time I can remember that Gus will broadcast a game from Crisler. Get ready for a ton of "RISE and FIRE's!"

Other Broadcasting News: Bob Costas officially signed with MLB Network today as an on-air contributor and a play-by-play voice for select games. Costas anchored MLB Network's re-broadcast of Don Larsen's perfect game on January 1st. Costas remains in his position with NBC as the Olympics and Football Night in America studio host, but will no longer work for HBO in any capacity. Great hire for MLB Network that gives the channel wide-ranging credibility.

I'm really hoping for a close game so that we are treated to a trademark Johnson call. If the game is close and Gus goes nuts about a play, at least the game might make Sportscenter on the merits of the call alone.
