As copied from Sports Illustrated’s “Extra Mustard” today. Looks like I’m not the only one who can’t deal with Fox’s sub-par coverage of college football.
“Maybe it was because I had Florida with the money line last night, but I didn’t really get that angry with the broadcast team of Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis. However, you guys did — and so did the bloggers. Reader Dave, of Tulsa, Okla., chimed in right after the game, saying “The announcers for tonight’s game were horrible…horrible! I would expect that kind of announcing talent in a Rice/UTEP matchup, not the National Title game. I put the television on mute multiple times. Absolutely no talent, Fox should be ashamed. Fox couldn’t even figure out where Tebow‘s girlfriend was seated, worthless b——s.” Not to be outdone, reader Kent, of Fargo, N.D., e-mailed this earlier today: “Is it just me or did the announcers in the title game want to bring Tebow up to the booth and perform [sex act deleted] or something like that? They can’t stop talking about how you would be a better person if you met him.” Kent went on to say many other things that couldn’t be printed. As for the blogosphere, AOL Fanhouse’s headline says “BCS National Championship 2009: Thom Brennaman Forces Mute Buttons to Work.” The Interception King cites Fox all over the place in this article titled “Five reasons why that might have been the worst title game ever.” And the Big Lead says “Can someone please check Thom Brennaman’s identification? Seriously. We’d like to see his social security card and passport. We firmly believe he is in some way related to Mountain-Mover/QB Tim Tebow.” For those of you still upset with the broadcast — or for Florida fans who just want to keep celebrating another national title — here’s one of the best Cheerleader of the Week galleries SI.com has ever done — Florida’s Britany Raymond.”
