FOX Releases BCS Announcing Teams (Magina's Back!)

Monday, November 26, 2007

FOX came out with their Announcing pairings for the BCS games today, and basically nothing's different from last year's teams. It really bugs me that FOX has the BCS in the first place because they're just throwing people out there who haven't called a College Football game all season, and Barry Alvarez could challenge Bryant Gumbel for the World's Most Boring Commentator, but anyway here they are....

Orange Bowl: Kenny Albert, Daryl Johnston, and Barry Alvarez
Fiesta Bowl: Matt Vasgersian, Pat Haden and Terry Donahue
Sugar Bowl: Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis
BCS Championship: Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis

FOX gets 4 of the 5 BCS contests with ABC getting the 5th, and that is almost certainly going to be covered by Brent Musburger and Kirk Herbstreit.

Below are a few of the highlights from FOX's BCS Games last year and hopefully they can improve on what was a terrible Bowl Season for the network. The production was awful as they had mics cutting in and out, and the only good team from last year (Kenny Albert, Terry Bradshaw and Howie Long) won't be back. I laid into Charles Davis pretty hard last season, but he's been pretty good on the BCS Show they have on FOX after the NFL Games on Sundays. Hopefully they can do better this go around.

"Oh yes indeedy....Jack Bauer would be most pleased by this Florida effort."- Thom Brennaman
"It feels so good. And he doesn't mind flash dancing out of there."- Charles Davis
"Are the Gators just going to win everything this year? Football, Basketball.....Dancing with the Stars?"- Charles Davis

Update: For those of you wanting background on the "Mangina" moniker for Davis you can head here.....

To be fair...Brennaman and Davis have called SOME College Football games this season for the Big 10Network. And Haden does Notre Dame games all year, so he'll enjoy some good football.

As for Barry Alvarez....ugh.

Isnt Terry Donahue a CFB announcer as well?

How can Alvarez as an AD call games? To me it's a bit odd.

Charles Davis is the worst thing that's happened to announcing since Tiki Barber.

"Charles Davis is the worst thing that's happened to announcing since Tiki Barber."

quoted for emphasis, change Tiki to Emmith though...

According to Lee Corso, "the team that scores the most will win" in his discription of the Auburn-Bama win and he repeated that about the up coming Missouri-OKLA game. Gee what a genius.

Now I have to hope that Illinois doesn't get to go to the fiesta bowl. I can't stand mangina. ( I call him Matt Vagasil)
