I am not #blessed to have Fox Sports South as part of my cable package in Chicago, but it was nevertheless amusing to watch my Twitter feed explode in frustration as the hosts of the New College Football Show did everything they could to ensure that D.J. Smith announced his commitment to South Carolina at the last possible moments of their hour-long broadcast.
WHAT THE HELL IS THIS ON MY TV FOX SPORTS SOUTH?— Adam Garrett (@Lifeofagamecock) January 14, 2014
DJ Smith's announcement was awkward. @FOXSportsSouth, your people talk too damn much and talked right over his hat presentation. Come on!— b (@bClickClack) January 14, 2014
News of the announcement itself was met with much more excitement.
