Brent Musburger wants you to bet on Joe Lunardi’s bracketology on 5Dimes

Every Brent Musburger broadcast carries the alluring possibility he’ll sneak in a gambling reference, usually by alluding to an over/under or getting a bit too excited about a last-second basket that happens to affect the point spread. Musburger usually veils his references enough to avoid alienating the gambling averse, but during the first half of Monday night’s Texas-Oklahoma […]

CBS had an uneven Super Bowl 50 broadcast

When you broadcast the most-watched program of the year, mistakes and glitches are elevated and are noticeable to the American viewing public.
