Not appearing in Champaign on Thursday night…

Word is the usual trio of Brent Musberger, Steve Lavin and Erin Andrews will be minus the rock star herself when the World Wide Leader rolls into Champaign-Urbana.

Replacing Andrews as the sideline reporter for the Indiana-Illinois game will be ESPN.com senior writer Pat Forde.

No word on why Andrews will miss the game, but I’m sure the Orange Krush will be disappointed not to catch any glimpses of the world’s most attractive sideline reporter. Then again, anything that angers the Orange Krush is fine by me.

    While I respect the diversity of the photographs on this site, might I recommend a more symbolic photo of Ms. Andrews (found below) as she walks away and out of the lives (at least for Thursday night) of the Illini and Hoosier fans and onto a football field, wait what? …

    NO reason to watch the game now

    Very disappointing…but I must agree, I enjoy DavidC's photo better

    Obviously (and thank goodness), Ms. Andrews prefers butt floss to granny panties.

    Andrews for Forde = the worst trade ever made.

    Without Andrews to banter with, do you think Musberger and Lavin can talk more about what's happening on the floor rather than making inside jokes about topics foreign to the matter at hand?

    Can it even be considered banter? Harassment maybe? Maybe Lavin and Musberger will flirt with Pat Forde…

    …who should be banned from covering IU games after that article yesterday about the General. I'm sure, in addition to the EJ/Sampson v. Weber story, we'll hear plenty about RMK's sudden retirement, complete with snippits from every negative thing he ever pulled in front of a camera while wearing an IU sweater…which is alot. Not that I endorse RMK's abusive behavior, but Forde will use tomorrow as a chance to go off on his personal tirade.

    Maybe I'll watch without the sound. He's no Erin A., but where's John Lazkowski when you need him?

    Agreed. Pat Forde has a major bone to pick with Coach Knight. I'm guessing that Coach Knight must have put Pat Forde in his place some time ago and Pat was all upset because his little feelings were hurt.
