    Can you guys stop running commercials in the middle of a drive? I missed a USC TD because somebody at the controls ran 3 commercials after a first down. Get somebody who knows how to work a production or move the game to another channel!

    Yup! I said the same thing. "How the hell did we score a touchdown?" And then I remembered that it was good ol' Spectrum television.

    I say we boycott any company whose commercial shows up in the middle of a drive, let them deal with Spectrum.

    Three times now! Right in the middle of the telecast, they cut to a set of commercials. What a joke.

    Is that Spectrum or is it part of Larry Scott's brilliant plan to shorten the length of game time? Either way it sucked to rejoin to see we had scored!

    It was the stupid Pac 12 network that screwed that up. Spectrum doesn't produce the game -- they are just the conduit through which the broadcast is carried. It's the Pac 12 Network idiots who make the decisions about what to show, when to cut to a commercial, etc.

    Inexcusable. Who is the idiot producer who was making those calls? He should be fired.

    And what made it all the more pathetic was the fact that they showed the same 3 commercials over and over again. They showed that one where the dude is sitting in his car as it's being assembled around him like a transformer. Then they would show the commercial of the fat girl who didn't have a clue how to shoot a basketball, but she could scarf down tacos with her dad.

    Ha ha ha! Maybe it was she who became the "idiot producer" making those calls?

    Spectrum has no control of the program other than to broadcast it. It is the PAC12 Network to blame. Thank them for the amateurish broadcast. Some of the worst graphics, pre and post game shows, and including the announcers. I don't expect it to get much better.

    Me too. Was that Spectrum or our beloved Pac-12 Network? That was utterly ridiculous - once, OK, but three times?

    Put Garry in charge of the broadcast. Things will improve remarkably.

    You sure? Cable operators get to run their own ads sometime. A lot of local businesses, house ads, etc. The ads that played during the game seemed like these low budget variety.

    Yes, they can insert their own ads. I watched on sling (got the one free week and then cancelled when game ended) and there were no ad issues. So this must be a screw up by spectrum with their ad insertion.
