"It will depend on how Ricky Dobbs(Navy QB) plays today"

Kind of weird seeing some of the cheap Morgantown commercials on the West Virginia feed.

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 12:52:00 PM  

@ joe 12:52

Ive got the GamePlan feed of WVU, nothing but Sportscenter promos between game action.

And how many Syracuse highlights are we gonna have to see with a former Pukie as QB ? WWL my backside

jgreul said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:08:00 PM  

Come on 15 comments? Are these announcers behaving themselves.

Meanwhile Paulus has got a gun. If only he could play basketball well.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:11:00 PM  

"We only have a half-dozen camera's"-Pam Ward

She made it sound she was working for some local broadcast instead of ESPN.

49er16 said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:14:00 PM  

Paulus for the Heisman and all that....this lovefest Ward and Bentley are having with Paulus is sickening.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:18:00 PM  

Two mistakes: Joe McDonnell on Sporting News Radio calls Neyland Stadium "NEI-land Stadium".

Bob Berger calls Charleston Southern, Florida's opponent, Charleston State.

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:18:00 PM  

@SSR

Spielman and Griese are talking over each other and the WWL (alleged) is too busy interrupting Navy-Suckeyes for Paulus highlights.

Plus no Doc Walker this week that's good for 15 comments a half at least

jgreul said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:20:00 PM  

"After that big 14-3 lead." - Pam Ward thinks an 11 point hole early in the game is a big margin

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:21:00 PM  

"Jeff Wills, who is beyond large, at 6'7 weighing 385 pounds." - Pam Ward

SSReporters said...

"Inertia"- Pam Ward

49er16 said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:23:00 PM  

So we're reading people's Twitter posts on the air for a football game.

This is complete overkill.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:28:00 PM  

Way to be super delayed on the touchdown call, Pam.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 1:34:00 PM  

"That was a great drive lead by the General, Greg Paulus."-Ray Bentley

Pasch sporting the goatee, nice. Wonder if they'll talk about it like they have everything else?

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:11:00 PM  

From Matt Devlin, announcing for the Big Ten Network in the Penn State-Akron game: "Everything they've done defensively (Penn State) can be attributed to their defense."

And we wonder why the BTN is not in more markets...

jp23 said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:15:00 PM  

Some of the announcers they put on those low-end Big Ten Network games I've never even heard of. Dan Gutowsky?

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:26:00 PM  

Navy is giving Ohio State a fight. The Big Ten needed 1 day to embarrass themselves.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:27:00 PM  

"Did he have possession." - Dave Pasch

The Navy receiver freaking got dragged for a yard or so and that's an obvious fumble.

Now Pasch has no idea what the rules are involving reviewing plays.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:29:00 PM  

Well that's game. Ohio State manages to survive.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:30:00 PM  

You can make a 52 yard FG but not an 18 yard extra point?

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:30:00 PM  

On that BTN feed of Montana St.-Michigan St, they're calling Spartan QB Keith Nichol "Keith Knuckle."

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:32:00 PM  

"I think Maguire covered that game." - Bob Griese talking about the last time Ohio State hosted a service academy, 1930-something.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:35:00 PM  

Ray Bentley: "That is the only time Williams hasn't caught the ball with his hands today. He let his body get into it."

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:37:00 PM  

OHIO STATE COME ON!!!!!

"Let's see if they'll go for 1 or 2 right now." - Spielman

It's a 9 point game so what happens if you miss the 2? Gosh Spielman that's basic math.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:43:00 PM  

Wow. Navy is actually back in this thing.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:46:00 PM  

@ SSR: You do realize that basic math is a course not offered at Ohio State, don't you?

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:47:00 PM  

"His wingspan is as long as his legs!" - Spielman talking about Pryor's wingspan.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:49:00 PM  

Holy crap, Pryor. You choked.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:50:00 PM  

Jack Crowe for Jacksonville State in a red and black tie, white shirt. One of the few other than Paterno in a shirt and tie.

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:50:00 PM  

Navy picks of Pryor!!! LOL!!!!

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:51:00 PM  

TOUCHDOWN NAVY!!!! WOW!!!!! Two point game!

"They would not have gotten Dobbs if it was 2-hand touch." - Bob Griese

UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!! Two points for Ohio State!!!!

SSReporters said...

"All these Buccaneers." - Bob Griese

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:56:00 PM  

"All these Buccaneers out there." - Bob Griese on the Ohio State defense

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 2:56:00 PM  

Buckeyes win.

Crap.


Navy definitely gave them a fight.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:00:00 PM  

"Ellestad booms it.....well short." - Pam Ward

"Paulus' team still in the lead." - Pam Ward. I think I know what she will be doing after the game...

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:02:00 PM  

Oh man JFein don't give us that visual involving Pam and Paulus.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:03:00 PM  

"It sounds like a basketball game here with fans chanting, 'Let's Go Orange!' during the timeout." - Pam Ward

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:05:00 PM  

@ SSR: Pam Ward is creating that visual for herself with the way she has been slobbering all over Paulus.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:09:00 PM  

"Smart move by a smart guy." - Pam Ward

This is more than enough.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:11:00 PM  

"Paulus says 'oh no. This ain't good, I'm gonna pull out of this one'." - Ray Bentley

Surely not the first time that Paulus has said that...

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:11:00 PM  

I still think the best comment from the Navy/OSU game was in regards to Terrelle Pryor's eye black. Paraphrased:
Terrelle has Mike under one eye and Vick under the other. We are not sure if that is a reference to Michael Vick.

Back to me:
Wait, you arent sure? You arent sure thats a reference to Michael Vick? Really?!?!?!

Pickitup said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:13:00 PM  

The infallible Paulus gets sacked. Ward and Bentley are devastated.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:14:00 PM  

"Whether the ball bounces or not once you make the fair catch signal you can't run with it." - Ray Bentley

Insightful remark.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:15:00 PM  

Iowa survives against Northern Iowa. The Big Ten is awful.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:20:00 PM  

"The Gophers have already driven 72 yards in 10 plays in this drive." - Pam Ward

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:23:00 PM  

You should have heard the color guy, Anthony Herron, screaming like it was the game that would have ended the season if they didn't win.

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:27:00 PM  

"This is a critical down here, 3rd down." - Ray Bentley

Brillant!

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:27:00 PM  

"What else would you want on opening day with Greg Paulus making his debut with the Syracuse Orange?" - Ray Bentley after Minnesota tied the game at 20.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:29:00 PM  

You just knew Ward's first game would be going to OT.

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 3:32:00 PM  

Anyone else kinda turned on by Wendi Nix's look?

funkdoctor29 said...

Atrocious tackling by Minnesota.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:04:00 PM  

I know this is the Pam Ward Chronicles, but check out this quote from Dick Stockton during the Giants-Brewers game. He actually asked Brewers manager this question.

"So Christmas is around the corner, when you sit on Santa's lap, what will you ask him for?"

49er16 said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:07:00 PM  

"He (Mike Gundy) is a man and he is over 40" - Sean McDonough.

Mal said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:07:00 PM  

My tolerance for Russell's goofs on the field he makes on a regular basis was reached last year.

This was completely unexpected.

WE CUT HIM!!! RUSKELL IS THE MAN!!!

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:10:00 PM  

"It took Dez Bryant 25 minutes to get his first catch. Why?" - Holly Rowe to Mike Gundy in an interview

@ 49er16: Do realize there are 3 stages in life. At first you're a kid and you believe in Santa. Then you grow up and realize there is no such as Santa (sorry little kids who are reading this). Then you get so old that you become senile and believe in Santa again. Dick Stockton is at that last stage.

JFein said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:11:00 PM  

@JFein, Juan Uribe just hit a Werth off of Lincecum type of homer and Dick Stockton called it like it barely went over the wall.

Joe Buck shows more enthusiasm, then Stockton did for that call.

49er16 said...

SSReporters said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:14:00 PM  

Mark Jones's open Thursday night: "These Idahoans are trying to mine a 24-karat BCS-busting win."

That Kenny Chesney song gets very repetitive.

Joe said...
Sep 5, 2009, 5:20:00 PM  

I couldn't hear the full quote but McDonough said something about someone getting banged.

BRIAN RUSSELL HAS BEEN CUT!!!!

SSReporters said...

The presentation on Sun Sports of the Gator game is horrible. The score bar that's supposed to at the very top is about 1/5 of the way down. The Sun Sports logo is completely above it. Is this the same on other channels that are televising the game?

Ted McCarver said...

@jgreul, I'm a Cal fan and this game scares the s&^%t out of me. Cal is prone to losing these type of games. See: Last year's Cal-Maryland game.

In Louisville, we get the Louisville vs. Indiana State game. The Bama - Va Tech game is on an alternate channel in STANDARD DEF!!!!!!! Dear Lord strike the program director down with scurvy, dandruff and ingrown toe nails.

Someone posted about the Georgia/OK State game, and how the announcer/score bug was wrong.

It said, What happened next was almost funny: Typically dull McDonough introdced himself, Matt Millen, and Holly Rowe. The Graphic at the top (below the score bug this time) read: SEAN MCDONOUGH MIKE MILLEN

This ESPN360 telecast is kind of biased toward Middle Tennessee, as they say Clemson was overmatched during this 2nd half.

I talked to my mother in Minnesota and she said they better not watch this game because they're going to want a new stadium for the Vikings, and us taxpayers are going to pay as we built a stadium for the Twins, and a stadium for the Gophers and we have no more money for a new stadium - Brad Nessler

OU can win out and still be in the BCS Championship game.... how the fuck is this possible.

USC would have to lose 2

Texas would have to lose 2 (including OU)

Florida would have to lose 2

I don't care how many times Mark Jones is going to claim that Trindon Holliday was a WR last year: it's never going to be true.

"They have LSU and USC in their 1st 3 weeks. They need to schedule easier at the beginning of the year." - Bob Davie forgetting that LSU and USC are in the same conference.

not announcing but a little problem with graphics:
on the Arkansas local coverage vs. Missouri State (seen on Game PLan)...
after the first Hogs score, an on-screen graphic came up "FALCONS TOUCHDOWN!"...then it corrected itself with "CARDINALS TOUCHDOWN!"....never did see a graphic for "RAZORBACKS TOUCHDOWN!" I guess they gave up.

Whoever said theres no way Oklahoma can make the championship game now unless teams like florida, texas, etc lose two... not really sure thats true. theyre prob only going to fall to 10th or so....if oklahoma wins out that would include a win over texas, if they all have one loss you could easily make a case for ok being in there, depending on how it ends up

Davie Jones (don't know which idiot) commented on a camera shot of Interstate 5 and said "I don't know if that's northbound or southbound".

If only there were a clue--like cars going in both directions.

They also announced that "Cutera" returned an interception for a touchdown.

"Jailbait screen". He immediately corrected it to "jailbreak screen", but I heard "jailbait" at first. I'm pretty sure it was Rod Gilmore during the Mississippi @ Memphis game, but I watched so many games this weekend that I don't want to swear to it.
