Fox knows how to broadcast an NFL game very well, but they need to stay out of college football or learn from their mistakes before they do it again. 

It was almost unwatchable during their Fiesta Bowl broadcast. Fox feels the need after every play to show the fans, cheerleaders or the band. I am all for showing what college football is all about and the passion that comes along with it but it doesn't need to cut to the crowd after every play. 

Fox is so eager to show fans after every play that they missed a Boise State fumble because they cut away before the end of the play. They would rather show a fan (who by the way may or may not being doing something fan like) than the actual game itself. 

They need to let the broadcast flow and breath a little so that it is watchable. 

Fox has repeatedly made this mistake since they started broadcasting bowl games a few years ago. Is anybody else annoyed by this? Why has nothing been done?

I'll be watching the Orange Bowl tonight and I guarantee Fox does this again. Please let me know what you think about this issue as I would love to hear different opinions.
