Perhaps The Worst Nationally Televised Football Game Of All-Time

These two dudes seem like fun.

For the most part, the increased coverage of sports on the cable dial has been a welcome achievement. Now instead of being forced to watch Notre Dame play Navy or some other such shit, you can watch Cincy play South Florida on some crappy network in the high 40's or 170's with John Congemi and Craig Coshun calling the game. That's progress. More choices provides better options. But things have now officially swung too far. According to Syracuse.com, the Syracuse v. University of Buffalo game will be televised nationally on ESPNU. According to Rivals.com, these two teams are ranked 107th and 102nd in the nation respectively out of the 120 teams they rank, and they have another week to get worse (Buffalo plays Toledo (ranked 104) this weekend while 'Cuse hosts Rutgers). Isn't women's college soccer on or something?
