Bill Simmons to do Announcing?



In a move sure to excite the dozens of people who get ESPNU, the Worldwide Leader has announced that Page 2 columnist Bill Simmons will broadcast two college basketball games on the network. The teams have not yet been determined, but the games are scheduled for Jan. 15 and Jan. 22. Given that ESPNU tends to broadcast the kinds of games that no one wants to watch, don't expect a packed house.

As Awful Announcing says, "You can beat on two things.....1) They will be East Coast Teams, and 2) The Celtics will end up drafting at least two of the players he calls."

Deadspin points out that the games ESPNU is scheduled to show include:

? Southern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference Basketball: Tuskegee vs. Stillman
? Women's College Basketball: Tulane vs. SMU
? Women's College Basketball: Coppin State vs. Hampton
? Mideastern Athletic Conference Basketball: Mississippi Valley State vs. Southern
? West Coast Conference Basketball: San Francisco vs. Pepperdine
