College Football Radio Announcers Are Suspended After Making In-Game Remarks

After comments made during Texas Tech’s win over Iowa State on Saturday, the Big 12 has issued a public reprimand and suspension for the radio booth announcers.

The punishment was imposed after the announcers “questioned the integrity” and “specifically called out” members of the Big 12 officiating crew, according to the conference.

According to the conference, the comments went “far beyond what is appropriate and permissible behavior.”

Both radio announcers for the Red Raiders have been removed from this weekend’s coverage of Texas Tech vs.

No, it isn’t.

Oklahoma State is ranked 9th.

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement, “I understand the roles of the play-by-play and color analyst.”

“However, as University representatives, they must adhere to Conference policy regarding comments about game officials; the Red Raider Radio Network booth announcers’ comments were contrary to expected levels of respect and professionalism; questioning the integrity of Conference officials and specifically calling out members of the officiating crew is well beyond appropriate and permissible behavior.”

The same Texas Tech radio announcers went viral for their call of Jonathan Garibay’s game-winning 62-yard field goal for the Red Raiders this past Saturday.

This coming Saturday, Texas Tech will try to pull off another upset victory over Oklahoma State.
