On Thursday morning, media insider John Ourand revealed ESPN is making a significant change to its College Football Playoff national title game broadcast from last year and college football fans are not happy – to say the least.
One of the highlights from last year’s title game revolved around the “Coaches Film Room” where current and former head coaches broke down the action. ESPN will reportedly replace the “Coaches Film Room” with the “MNF Film Room” featuring Joe Tessitore, Booger McFarland, Jason Witten and Todd McShay.
Here’s the news from John Ourand.

ESPN’s Monday Night Football crew drew heavy criticism during the NFL season, so it’s not surprising to see college football fans show their angst with the Worldwide Leader’s latest decision.
Alabama and Clemson will meet in the title game yet again. The Tigers sport a true freshman quarterback in Trevor Lawrence, while the Tide take the field with the Heisman Trophy-runner-up Tua Tagovailoa.
Kickoff is set for 8:00 p.m. ET on Monday night.
