Interesting news out of Houston today. 1560 The Game's Lance Zierlein (a friend of the site) interviewed Tom Penders today, and the Houston Cougars Coach flat out accused ESPN of doctoring videos. The two were discussing the clip when Cougar player Aubrey Coleman stepped on Chase Buddinger, and Penders stated that the added shadowing, and statement that Coleman is "looking down", was added in to make his player look bad. Take a look and listen at both the video and interview below....
"ESPN made it look like he was looking down. I thought it was a total distortion. And I think it was intentional on their part because I worked there, and I've seen them do this kind of thing."- Tom Penders
Seems like a weak argument if you ask me. They've been putting elements in like the one in the video for a while now, and just because a Sportscaster sees him looking down, doesn't mean that ESPN is out to get you. I could be wrong though.
