In great news it appears that Dave Barnett will be returning to the booth this week to announce a North Texas football game. This is fantastic to hear after a scary rambling incident earlier this summer during a Texas Rangers game left many concerned for his career and more importantly his health.
Barnett is a Mean Green alum and in the past has called college football games for ESPN. Hopefully the time off and a return to his stomping grounds is exactly what he was needed to recover from his incident. His future as the television voice of the Texas Rangers obviously still isn't clear but it's a great sign that he feels well enough to return to the profession.

I mentioned this to Matt on Wednesday when I saw the North Texas Game Notes, and I posted it in this week's announcer thread. The game will be broadcast live by TXA 21, which is one of the stations that Barnett worked for with the Rangers, and it will also be on ESPN3 and ESPN Game Plan.
