Familiar Crew Will Call the Peach Bowl Against Michigan State on Dec. 30

Published

on

If you watched Pitt’s ACC title win over Wake Forest from home last week, you listened to the crew of Mark Jones, Robert Griffin III and Quint Kessenich. Well, they’ll once again be on the call for Pitt’s Peach Bowl appearance against No. 10 Michigan State on Dec. 30 at 7 p.m.

The ESPN broadcast crew features Jones and Griffin as the play-by-play and color commentator, respectively, with Kessenich on the field as the sideline reporter.

The Jones-Griffin pairing is a recent one for ESPN, with the former NFL quarterback joining the long-time ESPN broadcaster in the booth for college games this season. It’s not one of the company’s top crews yet, with so few games called, but the duo has immense potential.

With Kenny Pickett’s status for the game is suddenly up in the air following offensive coordinator Mark Whipple’s move to Nebraska, Pitt’s 3.5-point advantage has withered away to a pick’em or toss-up.

Pitt is looking for its first-ever win over Michigan State (having gone 0-6-1 previously), its first New’s Years Six bowl since 1981 and its first 12 win season since 1976.

Well that stinks. Robert Griffen is the worst. I have watched the ACC championship game twice, and I can’t get over how bad he is. Sounds like the stupid fan sitting next to you, not an analyst. Guess I’m watching the game with the sound turned down.

There are better announcers available, but this is yet another example of how you don’t have to be particularly skilled to get ahead in this world.

That is unfortunate. Mark Jones is the premier cop-haters and dividers of people on ESPN. He sucks the enjoyment out of watching anything.

That will certainly make the game that less enjoyable. Both are amateur announcers, that miss boatloads of plays during their inane off-game conversations. The play by play jerk won’t even tell you what Pitt defender made the tackle on at least 50% of the plays.
Certainly aren’t there for their ability.

Reading these comments it almost seems like Krackerjack Kid & Send It In! are the same person.
