ACC Network announces commentators, studio analysts

I don't have an issue with any one commentator but here is the strange thing:

All former "Big East" schools (lumping ND with 'em).

Not one traditional ACC school being voiced.

Very, very odd... ok, not have a UNCheat homer but at least get a Wake grad or something in the mix otherwise I wonder if they will understand some of the more classic ACC elements...

I don't have a problem with any of them- sounds like a first

class operation. FWIW Syracuse has probably the top broadcasting school in the country so never a surprise when any host or commentator comes from there. The experience the other guys have is vast. No surprise BC guys and ND guy with experience and who grew up in the biz basically were tabbed- they usually are all well-spoken. Wouldn't be surprised if those schools have broadcasting type programs also. Wes, Packer etc. had already been announced with their bios- They are old ACC guys- McClain was a Tiger and if he does well has the ability to take on bigger roll in the future as he is young. Noticed some CLT sports reporter in there also, probably some others. Overall- this looks very good. I would not be surprised to see Kanell come over once his Fox contract is up.

Will be interesting to see if the University is able to leverage the on campus studios to create some additional classes/major to dev some talent in this field.

Yeah, it is a good team, just an odd observation. I think Cuse, NWstrn, and USC tend to be the media schools, Maryland was ok back in the day and the Mrs FutureDoc nearly went to Emerson for her masters (Clemson instead thank goodness). A lot of media schools in the DC/Boston Corridor.

I was looking to see where they would get some traid bias but I guess they could not find a heel that would show up to work, a dooker that could be bothered, or a sober state alumni.

I only see Wes Durham because of his Daddy being a potential Triangle homer.

Wes will be fine, he has spent more time at GATech than

anywhere else. He is also co-hosting the ACC Morning show five days a week, with Mark Packer. They have been doing it on SiriusXM radio for almost two years, and do a great job.

Tigernet needs to give the affiliations of each of the names. I like Wes Durham as an announcer, but if he goofs, calls of bias will arise.

I’m on board with Katie George. I might even refrain from sammich jokes if she wears those mini skirts.

Isn't Mark Packer doing a Finebaum type show everyday on the network?
GO TIGERS!!!

Mark & Wes Durham are doing their ACC morning show, which

has been on SiriusXM (channel 371) for two years, and it will now be on ACCN. No, it's not anything like Finebum, way better and way classier! And much more informative!

Glad they have ACC people instead of the SEC homers

on our network saying things like Clemson had SEC speed and such. They need to be saying their teams have Clemson speed, except when they are being run of the field by Clemson in Santa Clara.
