Fine, I didn't realize that Brennaman and Davis joined the Big Ten network recently.

They still blow chunks though.

How overrated was the Big 12 South looking back? 1-3 in their bowl games, with the three losses by double digits. The combined point differential in those games was -31. Obviously, it was against weaker opponents but the Big 12 North went 3-0.

In the interests of fairness, a lot of people around here today are talking about how disappointing the call of last night's game was.....I've just seen those two do great work, often, so I'm a tad surprised. We were watching in a very loud bar, so I could not hear them all that well.

Agreed, but last night was not their finest moment.

I think Brennamann is okay for baseball, but when doing football he seems to have a hard time keeping track of all the peripheral action. E.g. when there's a penalty flag he often can't figure out what the foul is until the referee announces it (good announcers can guess what it is based on the action, and they know for sure once the ref gives the preliminary hand signal). And the whole miscounting the downs at the goal line was embarrassing.

Oh yeah, the Tebow deification was also just slightly over-the-top.

And speaking of announcers, I can't tell what I hate about Kirk Herbstreet the most: (1) he's a buckeye, (2) he's a homer, or (3) he doesn't suck as a radio announcer.

Oh, he's definitely more of a baseball guy, for sure.

Slightly? I honestly was afraid that they were going to crucify him at the end of the game just to complete the picture for people.

BTW - how lame was the John 3:16 under his eyes. How about a little originality Tim? I'da went with 1 Sam. 18:27.
