Penn State vs Nebraska on Big Ten Network. The student broadcast has two announcers that apparently have never seen a wrestling match nor bothered to learn much about it. Very funny, particularly for wrestling fans.
I work for big ten net work. This is the Student U. they get students to do it. all these knuckleheads had to do was do some research on wikapedia, or watch some flow wrestling.... geeze. that's emberrassing.
The really sad thing is that BTN charges to listen to this caliber of announcing. If they aren't willing to invest a little bit into their product, they shouldn't charge fans to watch/listen to it. It's seriously a scam.
So I couldn't watch this when I saw it on tv. I tried to watch this clip and could only make it 3 minutes in before I had to stop. What a joke. If someone asked me to call a Cricket match, I explain to them that I don't know how to do that and decline. What gall these guys even had to accept this assignment. This is worse than the "boom goes the dynamite guy".
Actually my 7 yo knows more, he is a wrestler but still. You cant just make up names. I cant believe they didn't call the " fist in the back penalty".......haha
In the firs round, when the guy wearing the blue thingy grabbed the other guy and made a point on an interlock slip to a near fall reversing... yeah, that was good....
I guess all we can do is shake our heads and laugh, but it's hard for me to do. This was such a huge insult to the sport of wrestling by the Big Ten Network.Here's an idea: send Bader to the BTN as part of an investigative report. Do a "Sixty Minutes Style" interview with these buffoons and whoever the producer is and expose them for the complete idiots they are. Get B-roll from fans and Big Ten coaches. Humiliate them and post that so it never happens again. Go through the video and pause it to ask them to explain things like WTF a "stallmate" or a "turnaround" is.I'd laugh at that!
Yes, this was funny but at the same time very sad.I believe this is an example the disrespect wrestling is given by the broadcast media.The Big Ten should be ashamed of themselves. Nebraska you should expect more from their network representatives.
this is the greatest video I've ever seen!!! They just completely made up everything haha..the rules,scoring,moves!! SIMPLY AMAZING!
I uploaded this myself earlier yesterday. It was made by a friend of mine Rob Sterling who used to be the PSU Nittany Lion Mascot. He spent a lot of time weeding through all the stuff...awesome job. Love the "takedowns' on the mat returns..."not a clear takedown as he is lying on top of mine!"
This is hilarious! Not that the PSU commentators on BTN are any better. The one dude calls everything a "Strong Move," except when he sees really impressive moves, then he throws out the "Very Strong Move" call.
I literally cried watching this video. I could not stop laughing! I cant believe no fist in the back was called?!?!
