    Yea when I watched this match on TV I had to mute it. They were confusing my 10 year old son. I could have called a cricket match better than these guys called this dual. But hey at least they tried

    I wonder if they ever got any feedback afterwards?

    B). I'm not sure these guys were actually doing the BTN broadcast, they sounded like Brown Institute interns maybe doing a campus or college Internet show?
    Note the "student BTN" graphic in the upper right hand corner. It's part of BTN's Student U productions.

    It was brutal, they should have been suspended. LOL.

    I think that's the danger of putting students in charge of the entire broadcast. In some cases, as in one of the duals (can't remember which one off the top of my head) I watched with a Northwestern student broadcast, it was very well done. In this case....not so much.

    I certainly hope that they got some feedback from BTN and the school's broadcast journalism department. If nothing else, those two learned the value of preparation.

    I posted the video on the Everything PSU thread. But here it is again

    Perhaps they should "train" by broadcasting over other duals to dead air and get some feedback prior to going live?

    I am so glad i went to this dual instead of having to watch it on tv... I wish BTN would have talked to me i would have done 100Xs better. I am ashamed to be from UNL with this video...

    Apparently from reading the comments on the video one of the "announcers" said they were last minute replacements for the regular guys who were unable to call the match and they had very little time to prepare. Nebraska should have done a better job finding replacements. I don't blame these two guys if that is the case but, it really shows you wrestling has a long way to effectively market itself as a top tier sport. Something like this would never happen at a Football or Basketball game.
