And the answer to that question is “yes.” After watching last week’s national title game on Fox, I think it’s safe to say that every college football fan on the planet should be sending ESPN a “thank you” card for coming out on top of the bidding war for the rights to broadcast the BCS games starting in 2011. If you didn’t believe in religion before, this is proof that a God does, in fact, exist. But that still means you will need to utilize the “mute” button on your remote for one more year, assuming Fox sends its dynamic duo of Thom Brennaman and Charles Davis to the booth for next year’s BCS title game broadcast.
In case you muted the broadcast after the first of 37 “Tim Tebow is the greatest human being on earth” comments, here are some snippets of what you missed courtesy of Awful Announcing:
“Our camera hovering above the field like a humming bird.” – Brennaman
“Tebow steps out of major trouble to gain a yard..erm add 5 on top of that for a gain of 6.” – Brennaman after a 5 yard penalty
“He comes right across the face of number ten.” – Davis
“I got so excited, I thought they were going on 4th down twice!” –Brennaman
“I should have been there to help you partner.” – Davis
“They had 4 games that hit the 500 yd rushing mark, Tebow was one of them.” – Brennaman
“That was Louis Murphy, the son of a Baptist Miner…Minerster….stirring it up.” – Brennaman
“Oklahoma won the turnover.” – Brennaman
“Architectural like precision from Bradford.” – Brennaman
“He lost his shoe after losing a defender!” – Brennaman
“Big decision time here…do you go for it on 4th down?” – Brennaman
“Go, go, go ,go go” – Davis on 3rd and goal. The video of the call is here.
“The field goal is almost conceded where they are on the field of play.” – Davis the play before Florida scores a TD to go up 10 from the 15 yard line
