Fans Are Pumped Mark May Is Out At ‘College Football Final,’ Until They See His Replacement

ESPN’s popular college football show, “College Football Final,” will look a lot different in 2015. Rece Davis has been promoted to “College GameDay,” the show parted ways with Lou Holtz, and now it’s been announced that Mark May will be gone too.

Sports Business Daily reported the news on Monday morning, which kicked the week off on the right foot for a lot of fans.

Mark May is the Pitt-sized divot in my football life and his absence fills me with unbridled joy.

The biggest issue I had with Mark May was that he was so completely out of place as a fake analyst. He tainted the entire ESPN CFB product.

Mark May gone! — Mekka Don (@MekkaDonMusic) June 1, 2015

Mark May is off of College Football Final, oh what a pity (heavy sarcasm) — Brad James (@BroncosItaly) June 1, 2015

But the joy of May’s departure from the show – he’ll still be part of ESPN’s college football crew – didn’t last long. He and Holtz will be replaced by former players Joey Galloway (Ohio State) and Danny Kanell (Florida State), while Adnan Virk will step in for Davis. Galloway and Kanell already have a pretty strong following of haters.

I am saddened by this Mark May news, in part because I enjoyed laughing at him, but mostly because Joey Galloway is unambiguously awful.

So instead of Mark May and Lou Holtz, we get Danny Kanell and Joey Galloway. Meh. — (@LostLettermen) June 1, 2015

“Mark May is out.” “That’s good!” “He was replaced by Joey Galloway.” … “That’s bad.” — Bryan Mac (@Bry_Mac) June 1, 2015

So no more Mark May and Holtz, now we get Danny Kanell and Joey Galloway?

In all honesty, it doesn’t matter who you slide into the two spots, they’re going to find a way to make fans unhappy. It’s what they’re supposed to do; it’s their job to spark talk among fans.
