Michigan-Purdue viewers already hate FOX’s college football broadcast

September 23, 2017

First, there was a question whether fans would even see the opening kickoff of Michigan-Purdue.

The feedback hasn’t gotten much better on the FOX broadcast, even if folks in Michigan and Indiana didn’t miss anything because of an extra-inning baseball game.

The Michigan-Purdue kickoff was bumped to 4:17 p.m. once the Chicago Cubs and Milwaukee Brewers went to extra innings. Then word surfaced that the Fox Business Network would have the start of the game.

FOX made the call to switch to football in Michigan and Indiana, but the camera work, among other things have left something to be desired.

Is FOX televising the @UMichFootball @BoilerFootball game from a blimp?

Where are these camera shots coming from? The space station

The @FoxSports mentions right now are fun. Evidently, Michigan/Purdue crowd aren’t big fans of watching extra inning regular season baseball

Hey @FOXSports does the camera crew for MICH/PUR know what a zoom button is because I’m watching ants out there. This coverage is Horrid.

@FOXSports did the camera personnel have to buy tickets for the Michigan/Purdue game today… I need binoculars to see the game on my tv!

Dear Fox Sports camera man on the Michigan game…zoom in the game cam. We don’t need All-22. This is gonna get annoying.
