BN's Criticism of Versus Gets Coverage In Utah

Scott D. Pierce reports in the Desert News (a Utah based paper):

UCLA fans were highly critical of Versus during last week's BYU-UCLA game on bruinsnation.com. And that was BEFORE the Cougars had scored a point.

"These Versus announcer. They sound awful," wrote one poster on bruinsnation .com as the game began.

"Beyond awful," wrote another.

"It's like watching a high school telecast."

"Negative. I've watched HS telecasts that were better than this."

The Pac 10, of course, has contracts with ABC/ESPN and FSN.

"I like this little rivalry with BYU. But we really need to stop playing Mountain West teams at their place until their conference dumps this Versus (expletive)."

And this was posted after the game:

"Never, ever agree to any scheduling arrangements in future, which would entail broadcasting UCLA games on a joke network such as Versus.... From its clueless announcers, to its joke sideline 'reporter' (who couldn't provide any legit updates on injured players) to its awful camera angles and audio arrangements, it was an utter, complete, painful disaster.... It was a total abomination."

I think it's safe to bet that our criticisms of this joke network is being heard directly by the folks who run and work in it. Not sure if it will motivate them to put together a competent operation, but at least now they know folks are going to call them out in public.

Nice work ... everyone.

GO BRUINS.
