Wisconsin Alabama game didnt know who the announcers were but they were complaining about how the SEC was shiny and new and was stealing recruits from Big12 schools which wasn't fair. And it wasn't fair that they were spending so much on softball

If you really want to get hammered,
make a drinking game out of every time the young female announcer (pick one, they all over-do it...)
says the word "zone".

I watch a lot of PAC-12 and BG10. Many of the games don't make the main broadcasting channels and seem to use student announcers. It's not as smooth as pro announcers but I love it. Especially when the college baseball guys announce and compare and contrast the two sports or tell personal stories about their fellow softball students. It can be a riot.

Abbey Cheek at plate.
Announcer: “she got under that”.
Me “SHE GONE!!!”
Home run.

Cheek then hits another one out.
Announcer: “She got under that” for the second time.
Me: “Gone.”

He says “if she ever got all of that pitch it would go 350 feet.” Um, yeah. First Kentucky game you have watched dude?

Does anyone else feel like the ESPN announcers are overly in love with Florida? It’s almost on the same scale as Joe Buck’s infatuation with Aaron Rodgers.

Im still watching DVRd games, but on the bright side i havent been hearing explanations about “why she wears the mask...” that drove me friggin CRAZY!!
And the video is now capturing Barnhills leap and replant with reckless abandon, and no one cares! Why dont they have a discussion on Why arent the umpires calling such a flagrant violation? Last year When a Florida game was on, i would check to see who was pitching, if it was Gourley or Ocasio (who is a great athlete!) i would watch, otherwise it got deleted. Now that Gourley has graduated, i delete them all. Its Barnhills team and i have no interest, even though Ocasio is still great, maybe better than ever, (but i dont know cuz i dont watch the games:D)

Turn off the volume..problem solved. My old man hasn't listened to a national broadcast of the Celtics, Patriots,Red Sox or Bruins in 40 years. Turns off the volume and puts the radio on..prefers the homer announcers :D

Tonight, we have the riseball breaking upward and the all important "late breaking riseball." Tonight that riseball has "jumped" a few times.
