Rant: Game on ESPN2

Recommended Posts

I am VERY excited for this game on Saturday, but I am not excited for it to be covered on ESPN2. The female commentator just "grinds my gears". Last time, I believe it was the Arky State game she covered, she mixed up players names, credited other players for tackles that weren't even on the field, and she mispronounced players and coaches names lol. Like John Papoopis. She is also a broken record. She will repeat a fact over and over again and then will come back to it 5 minutes later lol. The worst commentating I have yet to see. Anyone know a way to find out if she is going to be the one commentating?

I must be the only one that doesn't get worked up about announcers, either way, good or bad.

 

The only one I really think is cool, all the time, is Bill Rafferty. ONIONS!

I'm in the same boat as you. I haven't really ever paid much attention to the announcers or even care about what they have to say anyways. My dad usually has the volume turned down on the tv so he can hear the radio with Matt Davison. The only time I have ever disliked an announcer was Cunningham. The guy is a joke of an announcer.

My father use to do that ALL the time, and I think the biggest reason, was because of the announcers. With me living in West Des Moines, IA, I don't have the luxury of the NU game being on the radio lol

If you have surround sound just mute the center channel. Most networks put the announcers on that channel. Then you can watch the game without announcers you don't like but keep the crowd noise!

As long as it isn't Mark May (I realize he is in the studio only) or Brent Musburger I am fine with it. Brent seems like a nice guy, but man does he make a ton of mistakes while he broadcasts games. Anyway, that is how I feel about it. I have no problem with female announcers, as long as they are competent. The few females that I have heard do college games seem fine to me.

It's going to be Brock Huard and Mark Jones calling our game with Jessica Mendoza / Shelley Smith on the sideline.

 

I hate Beth & Joey as well. That's why they do the ESPN2 games at noon. Aka the least watched time slot.

Brock and Mark aren't exactly a step-up either...but then again, ESPN has damn near exhausted their stable of competent announcers in the name of widespread game coverage.

 

But hey, silver lining here--this game would be a Fox Sports PPV rip off fodder if we were still in the Big XII, and we'd be cramming ourselves into an overpacked bar (until the Fire Marshall appears) or shelling out $39.99 to watch the game at home.
