I'll preface this post (like I did another about college baseball coverage) by saying that I'm thankful that ESPN increased their coverage a little bit. The SEC Thursday Night stuff has been great.

I just wish they'd cater their presentation to college baseball fans instead of casual sports fans that may stumble upon the game. The treat a lot of their games (for example the CU/Neb. game I'm watching now) like they would cricket. They feel the need to explain every little nuance every single time they broadcast a game.

I swear they show the Sports Science clip about the new bats and the accompanying stats vs. last season during every game. I've heard Kyle Peterson's spiel about how the game is more true now, but he fears they may have gone too far at least a dozen times already.

I guess I just feel that by appealing to the most ignorant of casual fans in the presentations, they are ultimately appealing to no one.

God I hope so. It was so bad but you just couldn't look away. I can still hear him calling Alex Panteliodis "Johnny Pants"

Indeed...and I could almost hear Kyle Peterson shaking his head everytime he would say that.
