Remote patrol: Broadcast crew virtually ignored emotional antics of WVU's Dana Holgorsen

Fox's broadcast crew of Craig Bolerjack, Joel Klatt and Petros Papadakis did a good job of capturing the ebb and flow of the shoot-out in Morgantown on Saturday night, but they virtually ignored the ugly antics of West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen.

“You are not supposed to do that,” Klatt said. "They (OU's defense) look foolish trying to tackle this guy in open field.”

Chelf earns high marks

In Stillwater, Ron Thulin and Brian Baldinger bragged about the job Clint Chelf was doing in his second start as OSU quarterback in the FSN broadcast.

Then Baldinger wondered about the decision OSU coach Mike Gundy would be making in deciding who would start the Bedlam game next week. Probably not much to decide after Chelf completed 11 of 21 passes for 229 yards and three touchdowns.

“He takes care of the football. He can make plays on his own outside of the pocket, and if you're open, he'll find you,” Baldinger, a former NFL offensive lineman, said of Chelf.

J.W. Walsh also was effective in short-yardage situations, and FSN had a nice shot of Walsh and Chelf jumping up and bumping hips after Walsh's 2-yard touchdown run.

“You're getting to see a major celebration for both quarterbacks as both have had major contributions,” Baldinger said.

On senior Isaiah Anderson's career-high three touchdown receptions, Baldinger said, “You want senior day every Saturday. Where did this come from?”'

Flipping channels

*ABC announcer Brent Musburger called Stanford kicker Jordan Williamson's 37-yard game-winning field goal against No. 2 Oregon in overtime. “Long enough, for sure, and good. Stanford takes down Oregon! No. 1 and No. 2 both lose for the first time since 2007.”

*ESPN announcer Brad Nessler called Baylor's 52-24 victory over No. 1 Kansas State. After the Bears had taken a two-touchdown lead, he said, “Things are getting wacko in Waco.”
