Does anyone know who the operator is for ESPN on College Game Day?

He had a crash on air. I think he was tripped up by by his cable wrangler on a set of steps.

If anybody knows his check up on him to see if he's ok.

The on air talent did there best to cover for him, in fact Reese Davis had just prompted a security guy to get of a cable as they were in the middle of a huge walk and talk with the college crowd.

Live TV in the middle of chaos. You better have the best support you can get.

I saw this! From my recollection, he flew a zephyr. This was Thursday night if I recall? Hope he's doing alright!

Bad thing about a lot of these games/shows on college campuses is you are forced to rely on students provided by the university. Half the time it's not even somebody remotely interested in television or film; it's burnt me a few times running handheld. The inexperience can be frustrating at best, dangerous at worst.
