Just heard Uncle Vern and Gary Danielson are calling the Navy game on CBSSN. So, I recommend turning on your local radio station for audio unless you want to hear endless comparisons of OSU to SEC teams. Just a Public Service Announcement.

I'm trying to find out if CBS will air the game up here in the land of Cheese. I need to make plans on whether I can watch from home or have to go out to BW3. Anybody know?

I already checked on this. It's only on CBSSN not regular CBS. Radio for me.

Don't know if CBSSN shows the same game nationally or not.

Where in Wisconsin are you at? I'm up here in Wisconsin too.  Directv has upper tier package free that week of the game so BDubs will have the game on.

I thought your thread was about the Gameday show lol. I think it's a show of respect to OSU that CBS is going with their A team for a game that is not on the mother ship.

It will suck royally if OSU plays poorly, but I'm expecting a solid performance and let the comparisons fly!

Actually, I think it has more to do with Navy and I believe they have a contract with CBS.

Right. And that's because it is in Baltimore, not in Columbus. If it was in The Shoe, you'd probably hear Beth Mowins on ESPN2 or Rick Pizzo from BTN.

Verne just needs to call Verne Lundquist play by play...but I guess it's getting a little harder for him to do that consistently as time goes on.

I used to do that when I lived in Columbus. But the radio was always ahead of the TV by a few seconds..........I always had mixed emotions about that.

Keels is the best play by play guy in the world. Every time I hear him calling a Buckeye game I wonder where did they find this guy. I love it when he says "TOUCHDOWN BRRRRRAXTON MILLER". Sends chills just thinking that I won't hear that again for another year...If ever.

I met Verne back in 1980 in Texas. He was a pretty good sportscaster for the news. He was a big SMU fan then. 

I have a hard time with announcers insulting the Bucks and I hear that a lot on these broadcasts. According to most, we just arn't very good and that included the Urb's undefeated streak.

I guess we need to win the championship again (I like that), but when we won it last time, we were still not considered very good.

The trophy looks nice in Columbus though.

I never really had a problem with Gary (partially b/c he helped mentor Kosar) until someone on here mentioned his biased opinions and then it all made sense - it can be annoying to listen to for three plus hours.

Is there a single non-OSU alum in the sports media that the commenters here don't hate enough to start threads about? Asking for a friend.

When I walked in this morning and saw the flag was at half mast I thought, "Alright, another bureaucrat ate it." but then I saw it was Li'l Sebastian. Half mast is too high. Show some damn respect.

I know quite a few people who absolutely hate Gus Johnson's commentary. I agree with you, though. He's great.

I'm just joking about how there's a thread about a different sports media person every few hours.

I hear ya I have read the same thing about not liking Gus - I think he's an excellent announcer especially in crunch time.

i hate gus johnson. i would rather listen to (insert woman sportscaster here). IMO even a woman sportscaster would be more bearable than gus johnson.

BUT...

what if we had a female version of gus johnson?

I've never understood the Gus hate. Guy's a peach.

What Would Troy Smith Do's picture

Those people are what we call wrong.  Gus is spectacular and there should be  a constitutional amendment that he has to work the NCAA tournament.  AND, if he is at a game that isn't so good and a nail biter is going on elsewhere, they just switch the broadcast feeds so Gus announces that game while watching the screen and the people doing Gus's game do the same with his.

he's spectacular all right, spectacularly annoying. it's kind of like "damn! that boy good.", "yeah, good and terrible."

Does anyone know if this is the only game that the Buckeyes will be covered on CBSSN?

Sloopy_HangOn's picture

Can't answer it in 100% certainty, but I can't imagine that OSU would be on CBSSN for any other games. The only reason they are for this one is that Navy has a TV deal with CBSSN for their home games through 2017 and this one's considered a home game for them. The rest of them would presumably be on ABC/ESPN/ESPN2 or BTN. 

+1 HS
Seattle Linga's picture

Thanks Sloopy - I wasn't aware of the TV deal they had. Are most of the Fox games only for the Pac 12 / West Coast games? 

Sloopy_HangOn's picture

According to a press release from Fox Sports' website, they have deals with the Pac-12, Big 12 and Conference USA. It's spread across Fox, Fox Sports 1 and their regional FCS affiliates. I know this site isn't the biggest fans of ESPN but thank God that OSU games aren't on FOX with all those god-awful announcers (except for Gus Johnson).

WayCraKen's picture

Seriously. Is there any station or network that respects tOSU?  Tressellball destroyed the entertainment value for any other sector beyond the state of Ohio. Its the truth. People hated watching the Buckeyes during his regime. 

Urban is changing this offensively. Hopefully the defense comes along this year. If Oregon, Baylor and Stanford can garner respect surely the Buckeyes can. 

If JT can put it together early I look for OSU to go to the NC game. Involve all of the playmakers.

I don't mind Vern Lundquist that much. He's getting older but he's still not bad. He's certainly nowhere near as horribly & terribly biased as Gary Danielson.

I will be 100% honest guys. As much as Beth Mowins annoys me, I think her partner Joey Galloway is a pretty terrible announcer as well. Some of the things he said last year made me cringe. Obviously JG was an incredible football player but those skills have not translated to the booth well.

I could never announce because I would get fired day 1 for cussing, being biased or making some sort of comment in bad taste. But that's why I sit behind a computer and write code all day...that's what I'm good at lol

I don't care for the following reasons 1.) Football, football, football is finally back!  2.) It's Buckeyes football and it's finally back!! 3.) Mr. Beth Mowins is not calling the game.  I will know, when I die, if I've been a bad man because there will be football. . . but with Beth Mowins calling the game and the blood will be flowing like a river out of my ears.

whiskeyjuice's picture

At this point, I just want to watch a Buckeyes game no matter who is calling it..........and I like DOODAH's idea of muting the TV and playing TBDBITL on in the background.
