total douche Jeremy Schapp is doing some special talking about the first 'game' that ESPN ever broadcast.
the degree to which these espn people take themselves too seriously is troubling.
Jeremy Schapp may be the worst of the bunch.
as if the first live sporting event on espn has any kind of meaning looking back...
This made me curious so I looked it up. Wiki to the rescue: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ESPN_College_Football
First college football gamed aired by ESPN: Oregon 33, Colorado 19, 1979 (tape delay)
First live college football game aired by ESPN: 1982 Independence Bowel (Wisconsin 14, Kansas State 3) -- bowls were outside the control of the NCAA CFA contract so ESPN could get access to them.
First live regular season game aired by ESPN: BYU 20, #3 Pittsburgh 14, 9/1/1984... BYU won the MNC that year.
