I just wanted to go on record and say that is one of the most obnoxiously announced games i've listened to in a long time. I was getting so sick of hearing this woman talk about the horeshoe not being loud because you could hear Braxton Miller clap. A) The offense is on the field so it's not supposed to be loud, and B) The field is mic'd, just like when you can hear them kick the football like a gunshot when its not actually that loud. I hope ESPN or ABC picks up a lot of their remaining games, just my two cents.
Joey Galloway sucked a$$ in the broadcast booth also pal! Big Ten football announcers were better than these clowns and those guys are lousy as well. The only TV Buckeye broadcaster worth anything is Chris Spielman. Fire Herbstreit and Galloway!
Yeah she was pretty painful to listen to. Just an awful voice for broadcasting. I thought Galloway was fine though, you can tell he's new. He wasn't bad, though.
Bucki: Ya, definitely like listening to Spielman. Herbstreit is awful.
This comes up every year and it always leads to the same thing. Females are horrible at calling football. End of story. Nothing new
Well excuuuuuse me lol jk
I didn't mind Galloway.
I also think Herbstreit/Musberger are the best announcing tandem on tv, even though Musberger clearly doesn't care for Ohio State, and Herbstreit can be annoying at times trying to not be a homer.

Call me sexist..just dont like female announcers for football.
Even my wife..a big female advocate for equal rights...doesnt feel women should be announcing football.
The best announcers IMO have actually played the game at some level. I believe that women are without a doubt equal to men EXCEPT when it comes to announcing sports. Annoying, especially when they try to use the "tv voice".
To be fair Galloway is a new broadcaster and deserves a chance as a broadcaster. However, I was taken aback at the beginning when he said this was the first time he had ever been back to Ohio State to watch a game. I know the NFL seriously restricted that ability but not once?
After the first 5 minutes,watched the rest of the game muted!
the best announcing duo right now? Sean Mcdonough and Matt Millen IMHO...they usually do a stellar job on the ABC side of things...
They aren't too bad. Although I have a hard time with some of the idiotic things Millen said recently about the PSU scandal which has made my opinion of him drop. But with regard to his abilities as an analyst, yes, he's pretty decent.
My favorite team is Todd Blackledge & Brad Nessler. I have rarely, if ever, seen them be biased toward teams when doing broadcasts, Todd is a very good analyst (the best current CFB analyst IMO) and they stay on topic and don't stray into the "stuff", as Urban Meyer would say.
Let's cut Galloway some slack. It was his first broadcast as an announcer.
Now if he continues on like this then he'll no longer have a defense. But I think it was the combination of the two that didn't work. He needs someone who could help him pick up the pace when he falters and she in no way could.
But getting aside from his announcing, it's too bad we couldn't get him to suit up and play WR because we could sure use him!
What amazed me is that this was his first time back since his playing days here. I heard Pete Carroll (not unusual considering) and Meyer say the same when they made a return here as well.
Simple rule should apply.....if you didn't play the game don't try to talk the game. Get in the kitchen and make some chili and burgers. Just kidding! She really didn't have a clue what was going on in the game. Not her fault, but someone @ ESPN should shitcan her NOW!
When a woman can't tell the difference between the man and womans voice doing the game, ESPN has a problem. Women should not be calling games, period.
You don't have to be a Albert A.Einstein to realize it wasn't her football announcing talent that got her the job.
What ever happened to the best qualified gets the job?
Absolutely correct. She wanted to talk about everything but the game! I couldn't take it in the second half and muted the game, just terrible.
he did the syracuse - northwestern game last week.
MEMO TO FICKELL: DEFENSE WINS CHAMPIONSHIPS!
I wanted to mention this yesterday in the game thread but I was too embarassed. Yes, she was the most annoying game announcer I can remember.
"Buckeye born and bred, a Buckeye 'til I'm dead"
She either wishes she was male, or just the opposite, she likes being around all the big, young dudes! I wonder if there are Erin Andrews type photos on her out there...LOL!
I almost posted this yesterday as well. Seriously one of the worst announced games ive ever watched. Also got very tired of seeing that effing Strasburgh was shut down. They showed the same clip like 10 effing times.
Haha lol no kidding! My brother and I were saying that they must've re-activated him and shut him down again if it's still breaking news, not to mention everyone has basically known that was going to happen the whole season, it was just a matter of when.
She isn't even paying attention to the fu&*ing game. Calling off wrong downs like saying its third and long when it isn't, skipping calling plays all together. There was a penalty called that I have no idea what it was because she was flapping her gums about some irrelevant topic. Getting kids names wrong. Rod fu$%ing Smith? Can you at least do your fu^&ing job and know the players names? If not then they provide you with a fu@#ing list with the numbers on one side and names on the other.
Unprofessional + Unprepared = Unemployed
Get her the fu*( out of the broad cast booth PLEASE!!!!
"The only thing That Team Up North will be tasting this year is the salty tears of defeat" - UFM
Come on man, his name is Rod Jones! Smith,,,Jones,,,whatever!
+ a ton! I am sick and tired of tuning into college/nfl games and having to watch/listen to these women who ESPN and the other networks think are influencing me. Don't know her name, but she is on one of the pregame college shows and dominates the conversation even though there are two former college/nfl players sitting at the desk. PC sucks and I can't wait until some of these duds are gone. Who the hell does their hiring?
From now on I am surfing every time there is an ad when there is a female ruining the game.
