For me, they are doing too much.

I'll be watching. Will I be entertained or annoyed? Remains to be seen.

Unless you are interested in the homer radio...would any of those options interest anyone? Those seem like potentially interesting choices if you were re-watching the game...but when I'm watching live I want to see what is happening and have the announcers only add anything needed, like player names. The worst football experience I had all year was when I accidentally recorded a Peyton and Eli version of MNF.

Yes, a few of those options will be popular, they are repeating this MegaCast for a reason. And the MNF ManningCast is a hit.

I guess asking. I do not follow NCAA sports, but all I know is that Bama is usually the winner. And they were favorites for a while simply because they are mentioned in one of my favorite songs of all time (Steely Dan, Deacon Blues), but then I stopped following college.
I will watch the game tonight (surprisingly, ESPN LA is showing it) because there is nothing else to do :)

Georgia, as the team that has been head and shoulders the best team this season, actually remains the Vegas betting favorite for tonight's championship game. Small spread, but still significant that Bama isn't the favorite. So you know Bama is getting a ton of action. I've seen more commentators pick Bama than I have seen them pick Georgia, a ton picked Georgia in the SEC Championship game and seem to be going with a fool me once kind of thing. We'll see. Either way, doubt 32-10 is the final score if Bama wins it, they may put up that many points, but not thinking they'll limit Georgia to 10, their defense hasn't been as stout as it has been in year's past even though it's still very good. Georgia's the one with the stifling defense, just wondering if we'll see it in all's it's glory tonight since they were MIA at the last meeting.


And FWIW since the reference you made was Steely Dan (I don't know the song, but it can't possibly be new), Bama's dominance is recent, during the Saban era. They have a strong history, but it hasn't been to the point of "Bama is usually the winner" at all, that's only been a thing in the last decade, they had a drought prior to that. You can follow the coach for college football and winning. Saban, Urban Meyer, Pete Carroll, Bob Stoops, Bobby Bowden, Jimmy Johnson, etc. etc. It's the coach that shapes the program and if they create the right infrastructure, can turn into a well oiled powerhouse that can sustain and be one of the best programs year after year. Alabama wins because Saban is there, and they know it, which is why they pay him whatever he wants and give him a raise every time there's even a possibility he'll be courted for another job. He was at LSU prior to Bama (with Miami Dolphins in between), and he won the BCS there too.

The song is 1977, and it was the time of Bear Bryant, when they were pretty good too. Anyway, certainly a poetic license from Fagen & Becker, as I gather that using "The Fighting Irish" in the lyrics would not have worked :)

Yeah, Bear Bryant was the standard for success at Bama and in college football in general, but now it's really Nick Saban (Urban Meyer is the other one). Pretty sure Bama won the BCS under Gene Stallings, but don't think it reached dynasty level like Bear and Nick's teams did.

That’s what I was just coming here to say. Not sure how that isn’t considered a pass.
