    Tools in the studio, tools in the commentary booth, and a tool on the sideline. Yuck.

    Cincinnati looks completely over-matched in this game.

    Florida is doing a lot of trash talking for a program that was gifted two games, lost the biggest game of their season, and are led by the second coming of Christ.

    The BCS and Major League Baseball. I have to watch both on mute unless a team I really care about is playing. Fox should understand they're going to get ratings for these games regardless, so why not save some money on assembling huge studio and announce teams that really just bring down the quality of the broadcast.

    Remember the tool in the booth with brian billick is the SAME GUY who stated" If you spend 15 minutes with tim tebow, your life will be better for it". He mentioned people being jealous and sarcastic. No **** sherlock, you get a boner and make a statement like that what do you expect?

    Fox has always sucked at doing college football. I don't want NFL guys anywhere near college football, Another thing, stop putting kirk slobstreit in the booth for ohio state games. Feel bad for Lee Corso, his speech is slurring and you can tell he's struggling.

    I wonder how much Fox paid to get these BCS games.

    I actually think he does a fairly good job now. He's definitely toned down the homerism in the last 5-3 years. For instance, in today's game, it seemed as though musberger was all over ohio stank's knob and herby was the straight man.

    He sounded the same to me but, my wife and our families are all from ohio and they Love the buckeyes and my brother-in-law is a prof at OSU. Of course he calls me after the game yet when they lost the last 3 years, he wasn't home or didn't watch the game....I think herbstreit is good but imho he shouldn't be doing ohio state games. Musberger picks a team and then goes overboard for sure.

    Meh. I can't think of many schools that had a HC change before the game that played well. Maybe WV when RR left. Kelly was the play caller so its no surprise to me that they were that bad.

    The best thing I heard all night was that their contract was up after this year, so this should be the last time we have to listen to them cast BCS games. I really liked when Billick was a caster for CBS, but it didn't seem to work well for him last night. All he seemed to want to do was talk about Tebow as a pro prospect or how other players translated to the NFL. I guess it's hard to be critical when the game was over at halftime, though.

    Don't count on it. Its all about money. If they bid the highest amount they will get it again.

    I think the next contract has already been signed and they lost out to ESPN. Could be wrong though.

    Not sure how true that is (partly because I can't listen to either of them doing this game), but herbie's biggest problem is making intelligent commentary...

    The worst thing about FOX is the number of commercials......Murdoch is looking for his ROI on these friggin games...

    Herbstreit is one of the better cfb guys IMO. I don't even think he's an OSU homer. When I didn't know who he was or that he went to school there, I assumed he went to USC because he seemed to be a USC homer. Same thing I thought about Mark May, for that matter...

    I don't necessarily disagree, but I think it's an indictment of the profession. They pretty much all suck, with rare exception. Sports journalism is, indeed, an oxymoron.

    At least they are consistently horrible. The plethora of commercials, the shots of the bands, the horrible theme music when they go to commercial, and on and on and on.

    Fox has announced a change in the broadcast booth:
    Calling the game are Gilbert Godfried and Dr. Lou Holtz.

    On the sideline is Fran Drescher, from the Nanny.
