This week has been a pretty crazy one for news out of the sports media industry. Today's biggest story, which broke earlier this afternoon, is Skip Bayless' imminent departure from ESPN, which was announced by the Worldwide Leader.

According to Sports Illustrated's Richard Deitsch, Bayless is looking at a massive offer to join Colin Cowherd, Jason Whitlock, Clay Travis, et al at Fox.
