But Fox does have those cool robot graphics.

Boy, am I eagerly looking forward to Fox’s in-depth coverage of the Sugar Bowl.

Today, the AJ-C treats us to this: “(f)ormer Tennessee defensive back Charles Davis, who’ll serve as color analyst for Fox’s coverage of the Sugar Bowl, gives us five reasons Georgia … shouldn’t take Hawaii for granted…

And about those five reasons? Here’s my favorite one:

3. Defense. Yes, defense. (Coached by former Falcons head coach Jerry Glanville.) Hawaii moved from a final Division I-A ranking of 93rd in 2006 to 33rd in 2007, and pitched a second-half shutout of Washington with the season on the line.

That’s sure sounds insightful to me. Except there’s one teeny, tiny, little catch – Jerry Glanville isn’t Hawaii’s defensive coordinator. He was prior to this season, but left to become the head coach at Portland State in 2007.

Can’t wait to hear what Charles thinks Hawaii should be worried about. Maybe he’ll give kudos to Neil Callaway for the great job done by the Georgia offensive line this season.


UPDATE: The AJ-C has updated the photo spread and removed the reference to and photo of Glanville. It’s kinda like what the Soviets did with Stalin after he died.

    Charles Davis is just . . . awful. Remember when he was the sideline reporter at halftime on the old JP? The halting speech and lousy analysis.
    Fox should not be involved in college athletics.

    I agree this guy was terrible on the JP games. Fox might as well put me out there to be the color analyst. I’ve never called a game before and I’ve never played college football but I’m pretty sure I would be better.
