Bobâ€ Iâ€™m not biasâ€ Griese commentary
Was it me or was the commentary from Bob Griese as bad as it gets on Saturday?Â I couldnâ€™t help but get madder as the game went on.Â Even my wife, who doesnâ€™t watch sports much, was laughing at how BG was hating on MSU.Â When Dell made that amazing catch for the touchdown, all he could talk about was what a great angle the camera man had.Â He didnâ€™t even mention the great touch that Hoyer put on the ball.Â Iâ€™ll be the first to admit that the camera man had a GREAT shot of the touchdown, but there was an OUTSTANDING catch made, right?
Then came the hit of the year, followed by more HATRED.Â Turning what was a great play into a play that was dirty.Â Telling the kids who are watching, that this is not how you play football.Â Saying the â€œoverâ€ celebrating was a classless act.Â All I saw was them slapping hands, saying nice hit.Â He didnâ€™t break out in a Vegas show dance routine, or grab his Bluetooth and call his mom.Â At least mention that since it was a catch, the clock would of ran out if the ref did not stop it or Wiley would of picked up the fumble.
â€œThat's Michigan State being Michigan State".Â That was said when Davis hit the QB for the late hit.Â Iâ€™ll be the first to admit that State has done that in the past, but it doesnâ€™t look like this is the past.Â The game didnâ€™t look like the past.Â Stopping them on 3rd and goal after the personal foul was not like the past.Â It looks like times are changing here in East Lansing; I hope ABC will be changing also.
Being a die hard Spartan fan, I understand the hatred from the Michigan fans, but from an ABC announcer?Â Come on!Â You didnâ€™t even attend Michigan.Â I understand that as a father of a former Michigan player, you must also hate the green and white, but having to show it on national TV?Â I can take the bias from the Notre Dame Channel, but from the #1 crew in college football, not a chance.Â He will be eating his words when MD leads the green and white to the promise land.
