Matty V should be a local weatherman. Tim Ryan should be wearing brown shorts and hauling boxes.

Mal said...
Jan 5, 2009, 8:08:00 PM  

Matt V. announcing this game too... sigh.

Was it The Blind Boys of Alabama doing the National Anthem? It was no Bonerama, but still pretty cool.

I know this is off-topic, but on Thursday I plan on making the long drive to watch the National Championship Game in 3D. I have no idea how that'll be (aside from the fact that I know I'll be on the edge of my seat seeing the 100 shots of the band geeks from both schools), but I'll talk about it in the appropriate thread once I get back from it.

Oh c'mon, get to the game already! All the Fox stalling is pretty frustrating.

Jan 5, 2009, 8:09:00 PM  

I don't know why, but I consider Jim Tressel to be an overrated Division I-A coach. The Longhorns will run them over.


Texas 41 Ohio State 24



So this is the final game for Matt Vasgersian, hopefully this does not mean Chris Rose to the booth.


2 bandshots from Texas, 3 before the game even starts.

Band shot, shot of someone's mom, and then another band shot! Oh yay. Wash, rinse, and repeat for how many ever dozens of times the next 4 hours.

Tony Stewart takes the air off Bevo's spoiler and spins him into the wall.

Um, how does Tostitos "inspire greatness in others"? I mean, honestly! That's what that CEO said. How does a brand of tortilla chips "inspire greatness in others"? The only inspiration I get is when I dip the chips into the salsa mix.

Come on Pryor, he had room to get past the first down marker!


BAND! OSU! 2 shots in the game, 6 shots overall.

SSReporters said...
Jan 5, 2009, 8:22:00 PM  

Two stupid plays in a row. Pryor running out of bounds too soon with the marker right in front of him and then the sub penalty.

One thing I must say, Pryor is very elusive and is not erratic on the run so far.

SSReporters said...

Folks, we have a baseball crew on tonight's football game telecast. Getting this info took a little while, but here goes...

Bill Webb is tonight's director--he is the lead MLB on Fox director and directs 120 Mets games on SNY.

Producer Jeff Gowen has done football games in his long career, including an analyst-only experiment Fox tried for one game in 1995 (the analysts none other than Terry Bradshaw and Jimmy Johnson). Recently, though, he has been the lead producer of the MLB on TBS. Interesting tidbit: Gowen was once married to Olympic swimmer Dara Torres.

TEXAS BAND to start the 2nd quarter. Ugh.

SSReporters said...
Jan 5, 2009, 9:00:00 PM  

Well, the only reason I am researching this is to see if there is a difference in crews as to how many band shots we see. I'd think a baseball crew would give us more band because baseball TV is more theatrical.

I wrote on here the other night that the lead BCS production crew is the "E" NFL crew while the Sugar was done by the NFL "B" crew, which, along with the rest of their BCS production, doesn't make a bit of sense to me.

Deven said...

IDK, Anonymous at 9:02. I didn't hear the full quote myself, but I'm sure it was something asinine.

Aerial coverage of a game where the stadium has its roof closed = logical.

You know, it'd be nice to see a replay of that catch that Wells made, as I wasn't even sure that Pryor meant to pass to him, but I guess we have to see a standard highlights package of Beanie instead. Sigh.

"Out-time-of-possessioned?" This, folks, is a grammarian's worst nightmare.

Yay, more band! 28, this last one was from Texas.

Texas looks really flat, and they're going for it on 4th and 7.


Okay, I think OSU may blow them out if they don't watch it. Pass protection is crap.

Very true, Mal (on both accounts).

In other bad news for the 'Horns, #4 Women's basketball just lost at Purdue.

That's funny...the umpire was briefly on the wrong side of the ball when OSU started this possession.

Nothing is worse than waterboarding. Just ask Al Michaels.

I really don't think Matt gives a damn tonight, this is pathetic from both men.


Think of it this way, this means Thom or Chris Rose could be promoted to NFL duty, and that doesn't sound so good.

Matt V: "A long one, right down centerfield. He tried to hit a home run with that one."

I thought Matt V was through completely with Fox after this game was over.

No kidding.

This is arguably the worst BCS season since its inception, this has been so boring.

At the end of 4 and a half, it's Indians 6. Rangers 3.

Mal said...

SSR, if you were very ambitious, you should try counting the number of telecast minutes filled with too-loud drumming. I feel like I'm at some tribal council.

Texas Band for #30.


A big gainer, a big penalty, band shot #31, Texas again.

SSReporters said...

If that were the case, Mal, we'd have Tom Hamilton screaming like a nut on the Indians radio broadcast.

A WAAAAAAYYYYY BACK...GONE! Victor Martinez!

/that dude sucks

Matt should never call another football game again.

FOX really got screwed with the playoff rotation this year.

Jints-Iggles early Sunday game.

SS, Fox needs Thom to stay on Big Ten Network because they need a large presence to justify all the crap they put the Big Ten markets through over the past couple of years.

Matt V: "The Yellow Line is Unofficial."

That should be the name of the blog I'd finally start.

Longhorns finally woke up.

Again another band shot for Texas. That's 33 total band shots for both teams since kickoff.

Oh my goodness Colt that was dumb, throw it away!!!


6-3 Ohio State at halftime in a boring half of football.


2 more band shots for Texas, 35 BANDSHOTS at the half.

Joe Benninanti doing the Penguins-Rangers game displayed more emotion in 5 minutes than these two have all night.

And RJBO, Fox actually puts up a little graphic at times that says "Remember: The Yellow Line is Not Official." Just giving you some graphical ideas for your blog.

to sum up the first half...meh.

Lord Nero said...

Two men on and Josh Hamilton up for the Rangers. He hits a drive to deep center. Grady Sizemore leaps to rob Hamilton of a 3 run homer to preserve the Tribe's three run advantage.

Mal said...

Get Matty V & Tim Ryan a 5-Hour Energy.

Matt has seen this football a lot this year.

Evan Fields said...

Reece Davis, Brock Huard, Rod Gilmore and Bob Griese as in-studio cast. Interesting. Getting Griese ready for next year?
