Seriously, what is up with that scroll that posts text messages from viewers? How annoying is that? I want to hear commentary about the game from the announcers, not from random 'Nova fans that have access to a cell phone.
All game long we had to endure this crap. I'm really not sure what this technology does to enhance a broadcast, quite honestly.
Between the messages about free cheesecake for everyone and how good the Big East is, I found my eyeballs wondering to the top of the screen more than to the actual action. And for that, I am a tad upset.
Wow. Thanks ESPN2.
And now, as you've come to this site for reaction on the MU loss, you've instead gotten a bitch-fest about ESPN2. I am now subjecting you to the same distraction that we suffered during the game. My deepest apologies.
As for the game, Nova ultimately played just too fast and nailed too many three-point shots for Marquette to keep up with.
Marquette was playing well early on, and I thought for sure that the Eagles would be able to rebound after their loss to South Florida. But it wasn't meant to be, and MU will look to rebound against St. John's on St. Valentine's Day.
