ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit open to calling college football and NFL

1. ESPN’s Kirk Herbstreit and Chris Fowler did something two months ago that is very rare these days: They drew an overwhelming amount of praise on Twitter for their call of the Steelers-Giants Week 1 Monday Night Football game.

The fact that the network’s top college football broadcast team would call a good game isn’t all that shocking. But the smoothness Herbstreit and Fowler showed in transitioning from college to the NFL was impressive.

The new experience also seemed to give Herbstreit a jolt. He recently told The Big Lead that he was now more open to the idea of calling NFL games.
