ESPN to Embed Reporter at Ohio State for Signing Day
By 11W Staff - 25 January 2013
Nine years ago, ESPN didn't even cover National Signing Day.
This year, the network will air 10 continuous hours of coverage, embed reporters at 13 different schools and feature 17 on-air player commitments.
It's become a veritable college football holiday.
Live coverage begins with ESPNU's National Signing Day special at 9 a.m. ET and will include live look-ins from SportsCenter, an ESPN simulcast from 3:30-4 p.m. and the wit and insight of former coaches Gene Chizik (Auburn) and Derek Dooley (Tennessee).
Quint Kessenich, part of an ESPN college football broadcast crew with Urban Meyer in 2011 – they did the Akron game together and would have done Michigan had Meyer not pulled out of the broadcast – has been assigned to Ohio State and will report live from a fax machine at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center.
12 other reporters, six of them at SEC schools, will provide similar coverage.

Found myself agreeing with a post, under this story, over on the 11W site, by "CauseIcouldntgo43"
Here it is:
"You have to admire how well Meyer understands how the power of the media, if used in the right way, can help him to build his and OSU's brand. It's just downright brilliant how positive the coverage has been as of late, such as the "Hard Knocks" type show from last summer, how he was there at the NC game as an analyst, keeping his face in front of prospective recruits.
Perhaps there is a warm fuzzy post coital glow from his time at ESPN, but I think he has seized upon that and is shaping and developing the relationship much as he would a blue chip recruit. "
Meyer "flipping" ESPN?
I miss my Kate Upton Picture
Haha. Exactly. Very well put.
The ESPN vs OSU stuff is old news. And yes, I think Meyer is largely responsible for that.
Our quarterback does front flips, suck it.
Can we request Mark May instead?
He'd never make it out alive!!!
At very least he would have to leave on a stretcher.
It's all Meyer, everyone hated the Buckeyes when Tress was in charge, now it almost feels like we are turning into the little "media darlings"
