Galindo and Brooks are absolute trash

Recommended Posts

We already knew Galindo was, but Ahmad may have outdone him today. Constantly gargling Carters balls and spewing out the absolute dumbest and incorrect argument for every reviewed play. I swear they were trading handjobs with each other every time Kansas made a big play.

 

And "Duveryay". Jfc Lowell.

LHN broadcast quality is a great representation of the state of the Texas football program since its inception.

I think this is the first LHN game that I haven’t attended and it was jarring how bad they were. If any other big team had a homer network, the opponents would get treated like shit, but Brooks was treating their QB like Brady - it was absurd.

Brooks was unbearable.  I'm usually one that can tune out whoever is in the booth, but his suck fest for KU is off the charts.  It was so over the top that I thought maybe before the game the producers told him to be more neutral so he turned it up to 11 to remove any doubt.

Ahmad was so giddy for all of Kansas’ scores. Couldn’t stand them tonight. 

It's like he was trying so hard to be an unbiased commentator he went too far in that direction.

Brooks was intolerable tonight. I thought he was going to felate the kansas QB during the game.

Ahmad is good, the other guy isn't.

No, he's not.  He sucks.   No useful insights and takes the air right out of the broadcast.

If you think he's good then I can't help you.

it's all opinion. He does know the players on both teams pretty well. Played in the NFL. I'll give him a B as an announcer.

Correct. It’s all opinion. Yours just happens to suck.

Try the Tennessee Titan announcers before you get too angry about LHN.  It's more annoying to have absolute homers than it is to have giddiness following good plays by massive underdogs, IMO.

There is no damn way that KU QB is as great as we made him look or Brooks seemed to think he was. If he was that great, how did Kansas lose to Coastal Carolina? Brooks was driving me nuts acting like he was this great player. Carter Stanley is a bad player and so our defense is terrible.

What about when the homers get giddy about the underdogs?

Every time my inner voice says "who the hell does Lowell have compromising pictures of at ESPN" I am interrupted by Ahmad Brooks where m thought focus immediately becomes "where the hell is Rod Babers."  We deserve better.

LHN production closely resembles what North Korean state TV propaganda might look like. 

North Korea state propaganda spends the whole time talking about how great South Korea is?

No shit. They are the exact opposite of propaganda.

Your grading scale needs to be revisited.

When Brooks gets super giddy he almost goes ghetto. Describing one pass by the Kansas qb I swear he said "that mf'er was tight". He's like Steve Urkel trying to be hood.

LHN likely knows how uniformly despised this team is, but likely out of political correctness they are unwilling to replace them. Nothing else makes sense. There are a lot of much better announcers out here in the Austin market. It’s the usual ridiculousness. 

Alienates the the LHN viewership too, and probably advertisers.

 Anytime we have a game on LHN I always mute the TV and just listen to the radio broadcast. Craig Way laps circles around Lowell and Brooks

Is this really the best LHN can do? 

Why not? What is stopping them from making a change? Did they just suddenly become horrible?

Galindo and Brooks have never really been good, yet here they sit.

no, AB is good, he's local level good - not national. Besides, Surly bitches about every single announcer in every sport, so there's no one good in the entire universe.

"Local level good"?  

Sounds like something from a Polonsky PowerPoint deck.

you really have a nerd dorkish hatred of announcers.  Relax, enjoy the sport. I don't watch games for the announcers and have no idea who the fuck is announcing anyway. Don't miss the game for something so trivial, but that's what dorks do.

Look - Brooks said (many times) that Carter was an NFL QB. If he is, that’s an astute observation. If not, it’s Brooks being an idiot. I guess time will tell if the KU QB pipeline to the NFL gains another member.

I thought it was the opposite. Make UT's struggles look better by acting like KU was Alabama but with a better QB.

I have no idea what the deal with Galindo is. It might just be that he works cheap and LHN is all about low overhead. Brooks is usually pretty decent as a studio guy, but his color work is just brutal.

Carter is not a good college player. TCU dominated him. I could not believe Brooks saying that nonsense. Our defense is trash, that is all there is to it.  Carter is unlikely to ever be a CFL QB much less a NFL one.

Carter is trash but he’s multiple and as long as you don’t have a QB that is purely a pocket passer your trash can put its foot up Orlando’s trash ass.

The whole network is garbage. Non revenue sports and baseball broadcasts are good but the rest is a waste.
