Video: Steve Lappas’ CBS Microphone Left On
Former Villanova and UMass head coach Steve Lappas was the color commentator for CBS Sports Network during UConn’s 80-43 rout of Houston on Thursday night. The outcome was never in question, as the Huskies held a 29-point lead at halftime and coasted from there.
After Lappas’ play-by-play partner Andrew Catalon signed off on the broadcast, the CBS Sports Network producers forgot to turn off Lappas’ microphone. Anyone still watching at that point got to hear his true feelings on the game: “That was awful. Oh my God.”
Which, come to think of it, is probably the same sentiment shared by anyone who sat through the laugher.
