Sports USA Radio Broadcast

1

Did anyone else hear the radio broadcast of the LV bowl? The wife and I had a meeting just before kickoff, so I was relegated to radio for the first half. The local station broadcasting the game in Dallas was feeding the Sports USA broadcast. Some guy name Rich Cellini was doing play-by-play, and Gary Barnett was on color. The link in the title is just highlights, so it doesn't have all the good parts, but I was really impressed with Barnett. Being an ex-Big12 coach, I thought he would go all "Jimmy Johnson" circa Fiesta07. Not at all. He couldn't stop raving about Kellen and Doug. You hear it a little after the 3rd touchdown in the highlights, but they cut out about 45 seconds more of him talking about Kellen. His quote was something along the lines of, "I keep hearing about his lack of arm strength. There was no air under that ball at all. You can't make that throw without arm strength." It was like he was seeing him for the first time and falling in love. And it wasn't just one occasion. He had about 3 swoons in the first half. I almost started to get uncomfortable.

The Most Interesting Quarterback in the World

Forgive me if this joke has already been made (I didn't read the game thread because I didn't have three hours to spare -- over a thousand posts -- holy cow!). "He once threw an interception just...

Did 4-Letters Save Big 12?

6

From the book of Saint Chip, chapter 874, verses 8-20. A "major television network" swooped in to sign the deal . . . not because it would be profitable, but because they couldn't bear to lose all of college football's elite teams to conference networks. Link above is to podcast (hate the host, btw). Relevant moments at 6:00-ish and 14:00-ish. Host thinks network is Fox, but ESPN makes more sense since they already air Big12 games on sister network ABC. Plus, Fox already has a setup w/ Pac10+.
