Franchione to call Bama-Clemson game?

Kirk Bohls of the Austin-American Statesman reported that Dennis Franchione could serve as part of the ESPN radio team broadcasting the Alabama-Clemson game (H/T The Rap Sheet).

None other than former Crimson Tide coach Dennis Franchione, the scourge of the state. A source told me the former Texas A&M coach will provide color along with Dave Barnett for that game on Aug. 30. At least, it’s not in Alabama, but in Atlanta. We’re presuming Coach Fran would prefer a neutral site.

I bet Franchione could share a few colorful stories about dealing with the Alabama Athletic Department. I know I’d pay good money to hear some of the problems he experienced. It would be enlightening.
