    Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    Was anyone else as disappointed as I was with the announcers and the overall broadcast? IMO (in my opinion for those of you from Rio Linda) the announcers were pulling for the Buckeyes for most of the game, several plays were missed due to the excessive amount of info-bits that were run between plays, and all the announcers could talk about was how the Buckeyes run game was so much better than Texas (duh - really?). The stats for passing were equally as good for Texas as the rushing stat was for the Buckeyes, but that stat was never posted during the game.

    The bias seemed to disappear in the second half when Texas took it to the Buckeyes. At least the Big Televen was put in its rightful place at the end.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    I did notice that Texas seemed to be "helped" by Ohio State penalties while Texas "committed" penalties.


    I don't think I'm alone when I say I'd like to see more and more planets fall under the ruthless domination of our solar system.

    I liked how the camera kept zooming in and out of the Gatorade instead of focusing on the game.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    I didn't get to fully pay attention to it - but it did seem a bit lackluster. Almost as bad as the NFL Network stuff.

    I wish these big games would stay on the same networks that cover them all year (ABC, CBS, ESPN). Fox does a great job with the NFL but seems to miss on CFB.

    I think it was more that they just sucked then had a bias.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    A lot of announcers are big 12 haters for some reason. They did the same thing for Nebraska vs. Clemson. Even that double pass interference call was not right and the announcers agreed with the refs. The Ohio State guy pushed the defender to the ground. How is that double pass interference?

    I agree with everything except the bolded part.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    I guess I didn't notice the bias as much, but I wasn't paying attention. I was just disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm. They were very boring.

    Yeah, I didn't pick up on the bias - but again - I wasn't paying full attention. I just thought the crew was rather dull.

    I agree. ABC does a much better job with college football.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    I liked how they kept going on about the hit to the helmet, never mentioning the guy took three steps after the throw to hit him... and the call was a late hit and hands to the head.

    Re: Fox Broadcast Team for Texas/Ohio State

    Their producer missed several plays when Texas went no huddle, they were always looking for Colts mom in the crowd. Apparently whoever has the hottest mom gets all the face time between plays (Chase Daniels mom). Did anyone see Priors mom between plays?
