A couple of weeks ago, I started a thread to get a sense of who ESPN’s college football analysts were, and in doing so, I found a surprising group.
This week, we’re going to take a look at a list of writers that’s got a lot in common.
Here’s the best of them, in alphabetical order:Joe Parker, ESPN Insider (5)Joe Banyard, ESPN (2)Dan Graziano, ESPN.com (5, 6)David Koehn, CBSSports.com.com and Bleacher Report (2, 3)Chris Tomasson, FOXSports.net (5)*Tom Haudricourt, CBS Sports.com/College (2)*Kevin Patra, CBS.com, Yahoo!
Sports (3)Joe Giglio, ESPNU.com or ESPNU, College Football (2), CBSSports (2):Tom Llamas, ESPN College Football Insider (3)*Tom Fornelli, ESPN The Magazine or ESPN.
Blog (3, 4)Scott Van Pelt, ESPN Radio (3), FOX Sports (2:4)John Heavey, USA Today or CBSSports Blog (3):David Arkin, ESPN National (2).*Sam Alipour, CBSsports.com*Brian Griese, CBS or Yahoo!
Sports (3).*David Ubben, CBS/ESPN (3 and 4)Tom Forrelli, USA TODAY (2 and 3)Jeff Goodman, CBS (2.5, 3.5)John Canzano, ESPN, Yahoo Sports (4.5), ESPN College (2.)
Tom Pelissero, ESPN2 (2)(4.3)David Ubbel, CBS2.1.
(3.3)(3.1)Joe Parker (5): This is one of the best-kept secrets among college football’s analysts, but he’s a solid pick.
He’s not an offensive specialist, but his work is strong enough to get him among the top-10 writers.
He’ll be in a position to pick up the most votes.
He also has some strong ties to ESPN, as his father, Tom Parker, is an ESPN analyst and former college basketball analyst.
Parker also has an affinity for college football and his father has been a longtime ESPN.
This makes him one of our three writers to have at least one ESPN family member.
His rankings are based on a formula he developed with Mike Greenberg and Joe Schad, and his analysis is based on his time in college.
It also has a bit of a bias, as some of his selections might be somewhat controversial, and it’s a bit difficult to compare him to the top writers, but it’s definitely the most consistent one in terms of his analysis.
He has a solid track record of being consistent, so he’s not as much of a surprise here as some others.
He’s an offensive-minded analyst, so if you’re looking for someone to be a reliable top-ranked writer, he’s worth checking out.*Dan Gazzaniga (4): He’s the second-best writer on the list, but Gazzo’s work on this list is more than enough to keep him on the top spot.
He does a great job of breaking down what’s going on in the sport, and he has some solid ties to the network.
He has a strong track record on college football, and has a lot of insight into how it’s played.
He is the only writer on this roster to be nominated for the College Football Writer of the Year award three times.
He also has been the best college football analyst in the country for a number of years.
He could make his way to the front of this list, as he has a very strong track history on college basketball, but I don’t see him as a sure-fire favorite here.
He doesn’t have as much connection to the game as some other writers, so his rankings are a bit more subjective.
He may be able to put together a solid week on some teams, but if the team is playing well, he may not have enough time to get into a groove.
He doesn’t do a great enough job of predicting wins and losses, and there’s a lot that goes into making those predictions.
But he’s done an excellent job of picking up the votes.
He makes some interesting predictions about the conference standings, and could potentially make his own case for the award.
He might not be the top writer on college athletics, but for someone who does a lot on the field, he does a good job of getting to the bottom of things.
He just has a hard time predicting wins, but is still an outstanding analyst and someone who could get a lot more votes than the rest of the writers on this group.
His ranking is based more on the fact that he is a contributor on the network than he is on the teams he covers. He gets a
