CBS Sports has added college football analyst Brian Jones to its Saturday studio team this season, joining host Tim Brando and analyst Spencer Tillman. Jones, who has been with CBS Sports Network since 2005, already co-hosts a CBS radio show with Chris Moore (6-10 pm on weeknights). Jones spent seven years in the NFL with the four different teams.
CBS is expected to announce the move this week.
Don’t worry, this doesn’t mean longtime voice of the SEC Tony Barnhart is out. He’ll still be occasionally contributing – along with Archie Manning – to the studio show, most likely in an “insider” role.
CBS Sports is fortunate enough to have the GAME OF THE YEAR on its schedule: Alabama at Texas A&M on September 14th. That’s at 3:30 pm, so plan accordingly.
Devastated would be an accurate word to describe Brando/Tillman/Jones if Johnny Manziel is ruled ineligible and doesn’t play.
