Why Erin Andrews Covers Big 10 Basketball

Earlier today, I got to thinking. After a few weeks of watching some hoops, I found that Big 12 men's hoops viewers get Ron Franklin and Fran Fraschilla (just to remind Sooners of that upset by the Manhattan Jaspars in the mid 90s) or the pleasant tones of Bob Carpenter and Paul Splittorf. The Big 10 gets play-by-play icon Brent Musberger alongside Steve Lavin, and the bonus of Erin Andrews as sideline reporter. I’ve decided this is unfair, and decided to examine why…

My top 5 reasons Erin Andrews covers Big 10 Basketball.

  1. Allows Florida fans to demonstrate continued dominance of SEC over Big 10.
  2. In Big 10 country, any girl with all her teeth and weighing in at less than a buck- fifty is a looker.
  3. It's ESPN’s way of differentiating itself from the Big 10 Network. Check the “talent” at the Big 10 Network. You've never flipped over to the Big 10 Network wanting to get a glimpse of Vera Jones.
  4. Duke fans only have eyes for Dick Vitale
  5. It’s the only way to make a 53-51 game interesting

    Got additional reasons? Add ‘em in the comments.
