View Full Version : Did anybody catch Spencer T's broadcasting debut?

Sorry that this is so late, but I've been trying to log in ever since the format changed....:eek: I caught the Northwestern vs. New Hampshire game on Sunday on the BTN and who was doing the color commentary? Our own Spencer Tollackson!!! Let's just say........it was a bit painful to listen to. He was trying hard, probably too hard. He's well spoken and knowledgeable but really forced things (tried a couple of Dickie V. lines that made me shudder). He'll get better, and it will be interesting to see if he does any future Gopher games.

I caught it, it was quite painful. The opening commentary was horrendous, but it got a little better after that.

Just a FYI, it was Penn State, not Northwestern, playing New Hampshire.

He probably need to just settle in a little bit.

That first time out, just like playing that first college game, can be a bit overwhelming. Once he relaxes a little and starts to get used to his partner, being on camera while talking, etc... he'll be fine.

It's all about increased repititions.

He will be doing commentary for the NDSU game on Saturday...
