CHANGES TO THURSDAY NIGHT COLLEGE TEAM: USA TODAY's Michael Hiestand reports David Pollack will fill the open analyst position on ESPN's Thursday night college football telecasts created when Craig James left the net. Pollack will join Rece Davis and Jesse Palmer in the booth, while Longhorn Network's Samantha Steele "will replace Jenn Brown as sideline reporter." James left ESPN "for an ultimately unsuccessful bid for the U.S. Senate Republican nomination in Texas." While James "recently talked about returning to TV sports, it won't be at ESPN." ESPN VP/Communications Mike Soltys said, "As we've said all along, he's not coming back" (USA TODAY, 6/27).
