Hey, Check this.....C-Mottram found the video of Thom Brennaman calling Georgia the Gators from last night......



Good times.

"The defensive secondary has got to play well" - Barry Switzer (Via Mookie)

"West 'By Gosh' Virginia"- Matt Vasgersian

Ha...I think there's an F-word missing in there.

"Not only was he held, and got the sack, but he got held as well"- Terry Donahue

"Well Terry because of your filibuster let me get into the keys of the game for Oklahoma."- Pat Haden

Uh oh....the analysts are fighting now.

"I can tell you from being in a lot of bowl games that the speed and tempo of West Virginia is controlling this game."- Terry Donahue

I didn't know it took bowl game experience to state the obvious. (Via Fairplay)

"One of those "stupid" penalties"- Terry Donahue (Via JJ)

As JJ pointed out....There are smart penalties?

"Owen Schmitt, like a big runaway beer truck" - Matt Vasgersian (Via Mookie and Smitty)

WINNER!

"You know, I think it's time for Sam Bradford to respond."- Pat Haden

It's 20-6....you think?

"You were a Rhodes Scholar right? You spell that R-O-A-D-S right?"- Terry Donahue

"They're going to put him in for a couple of plays."- Laura Okmin on Steve Slaton

Umm, they just showed him with his pads off....don't think he's coming back honey.

"Pat White has gotten in and out of trouble with those beautiful legs of his." Terry Donahue (Via Fairplay)

"Sam Bradford and he's come out and been hot this half."- Terry Donahue

It's 3 minutes in Terry....settle down.

"And this is what happens in Football. Guys are going down on you."- Pat Haden (Via zeb)

"Boy they shouldn't let those two guys sit together. At least keep them in that order. You'd get the bloggers going all day on that one."- Matt Vasgersian

"I need to take that Jet."- Pat Haden
"There's a school bus out back that has Donahue, Haden, Vasgersian on it. That's how we're getting out of here."- Matt Vasgersian

"That's Oklahoma-type speed?"- Terry Donahue (Via JJ and lib4) on the Noel Devine Touchdown

Let me get this straight. Oklahoma can't keep up with a team that has "Oklahoma-type speed?" (Via JJ)

"If you put your nose up in the air just right you can smell the sofa cushions all the way from Morgantown."- Matt Vasgersian

Now THAT'S how you end a broadcast.

Hey Hey....with all due respect to me, I am 15-10-2 this Bowl Season and West Virginia IS NOT Hawaii. Nine points is too much with a Freshman quarterback leading the Sooners.

If I was betting on this game, I would have taken an over... expect A LOT of points to be scored.

OU is missing some key guys in their secondary, and it wasn't strong to begin with. Not to mention Granger's stupidity. Their offense is great as well

I dont think I need to mention WV's offense

alienaub said...
Jan 2, 2008, 8:07:00 PM  

Pat Haden and Terry Donohue. I guess this is what Fox means by "Fair and Balanced." Which is only slightly different from ESPN's version (Yankees and Mets).

The only thing I know about an Officer and a Gentleman is that my dad had the 8-track soundtrack.

13:45 in the first quarters and we're still scoreless. USC would have scored at least twice by now!

I don't think so Anon....they did a feature on him before the game and his parents were both white as snow. He could be adopted though.

Well, you know that Terry Donahue is a brilliant football mind. I mean it's not just any person who can completely dismantle in two years what DeBartolo, Walsh, Seifert, Policy, et. al. took 20 years to build up

I hate to sound like Brent, but the way OU is playing, they'd be down at least by 14 to USC.

And Georgia for that matter.

Nat'l Championship Game: Matt Vasgersian and Charles Davis


Bonus!

Rose Bowl: Sean McDonough and Dan Fouts

Why do we need a commercial break with 2 seconds left in the quarter? Jesus Christ. Just make the break at the end of the quarter longer or something.

Check that, change it from Donahue to Pat Haden

Mookie said...
Jan 2, 2008, 9:13:00 PM  

wait, im pretty sure they said right at the start of the game that OU has great depth at WR, and now they said they dont, did anyone else get that?

Atul said...
Jan 2, 2008, 9:15:00 PM  

Okay did Bradford just get scared and fall over there? The corner barely hit him.

Jan 2, 2008, 9:15:00 PM  

You know what? Sam Bradford is about one more sack or interception away from being "Unstoppable."

J.J. said...

Uh, Pat, I wouldn't exactly call OU's return game flat, unless the return team is no longer part of the special teams.

I get to watch the WVA versus OU game on FOX sports with a certain amount of trepidation. There are 2 issues at hand here.

1. The announcers (where did you find these yahoo's) haven't quick jabberring for the entire 1st half of football, and what they are saying has little to do with the game or the players. They have talked their way through many plays, flags, and replays without any comments on the plays???

2. I realize that we are watching WVA and OU, but I have to believe that the cheerleaders HAVE TO LOOK BETTER THAN THE BAND MEMEBRS???? If thats the best they can do, maybe they should be covering the game!!!

In conclusion, the TV is now on mute, and will stay that way for the rest of the evening. I hope that the Orange Bowl and BCS championship games will have some announcers that have a clue about their presence on live TV!!!

That's why people shouldn't be creaming all over themselves because USC and Georgia looked damn good in one game against mediocre competition. But they never learn.

Donahue is awful, I wrote an article (which you linked AA) about Seahawks announcing reviews. Donahue called the Cardinals/Seahawks game, and he said "The Cardinals defense last year, was ranked 29th in defense". Yep, I actually want CBS to get the rights to the BCS.

That was a simple, but funny, Telestrator glitch where they circled Gazoo on the quarterback's shoulder.

Seriously, they need to teach these color commentators how to use these things. I don't remember the game, but ESPN had a game last week where they forgot to turn the thing on before they used it. It popped up "TELESTRATOR MAIN MENU" or something similar

Could Haden say "aggressive playcalling" a few more times?

Mal said...
Jan 2, 2008, 10:49:00 PM  

Hahaha....he's still saying it. "Agressive playing is even more agressive."

Jan 2, 2008, 10:49:00 PM  

Man i'm getting sick of the OU band playing that little pep song or whatever after every OU play...

Don't know if this was covered yesterday, but does anyone else have a problem with Howie Long's son being one of four finalists for Fox's college player award? Dude's a beast, but he's not Glenn Dorsey or Sedrick Ellis.

After all the games this week, I'm beginning to wonder if we even need announcers. Of course, then this blog would have to find something else.

If Vaginarian keeps saying "WVU" a beer can might meet my TV.

When did Kermit the Frog stop doing Notre Dame games? I liked him there because I didn't watch.

lib4, it's sort of like when Brent says that a team has USC-type speed. In their mind, it's a compliment.

Let me get this straight. Oklahoma can't keep up with a team that has "Oklahoma-type speed?"

J.J. said...

Three plays ago, Donahue said "I would go for the knockout blow here."

WVU scores in three plays.

Then, Donahue says "I don't know if that's the knockout blow. I've seen teams come back"

J.J. said...
Jan 2, 2008, 11:11:00 PM

J.J. said...

Someone please shut the Oklahoma band the fuck up! Every damn play they start up.

Jan 2, 2008, 11:12:00 PM  

Almost every major D-1 band plays something after every play. But they don't have to show it and cue up the iso mic every time they start up.

Shouldn't the sideline chick find out why Gonzales is crying..

I swear she has made 2 comments, one of them being that WVU players were "jumping up and down" "giving high-fives" and "filming" from the sideline after a score....gee thanks

Oklahoma has too much history, too much tradition, too much pride not to give up. And the West Virginia sideline probably just said "oh shit. Here comes Oklahoma's tradition!"

Ten bucks says that half of WVU doesn't even remember Josh Heupel. Hell, maybe Jason White.

With apologies to Brent, the only difference between Joe McKnight and Noel Devine (besides the ESPN hype) is that you ACTUALLY can't catch Noel Devine.

Now they're complimenting West Virginia for their performance. This is about the football equivalent of Joe Biden calling Barack Obama well-spoken.

And there's some more shots of the Oklahoma band.

I wish Oklahoma would score again, because I want to get West Virginia's offense back on the field. I want to see them score in 3 plays again.

West Virginia has scored, what, FIVE easy touchdowns against Oklahoma in the second half.

Could you even imagine what ESPN would be saying if USC did that to them?

And I'm guessing that OU's defense is at least as good as Illinois' defense.
