RANDOM VITUPERATION THREAD….Speaking of football, who’s the director of ABC’s television coverage of the USC-Cal game? Can someone please fire him during halftime and put the AD in charge?

Look: I realize that the overhead camera is expensive and ABC wants to get its money’s worth from the thing, but most of the time it provides a really lousy view of the play. And cutting between the overhead cam and the sideline cam three seconds after the snap is even worse. Who do they think can follow the play when the camera angle changes just as the quarterback is releasing the ball? Sheesh.

Anyway, consider this an open thread for random gripes about television sports coverage.
