Putting her in an event hosting role should have been the plan to start. I liked her on the Triple Crown coverage quite a bit, it allowed her to showcase all sides of her but do it in a way where she didn't need to be the focal point. I also liked her a lot with the Olympics coverage.
Putting her on NHL or Notre Dame coverage probably would have been a good way to go.

One thing I've noticed about FS Live so far is that they seem to be putting the biggest stories on first. Last night, Pirates-Reds WAS the top story, Josh Freeman was next, then hockey. Monday, FS Live led with Rays-Rangers (top story), while Sportscenter led with MNF (not the top story)

People have talked about putting the SNF postgame on NBCSN. No brainer. Same goes for Sunday NHL games.
Blackhawks and Wings just had one of the best games of the year, but no postgame coverage since NBC had to get to golf. I think you would have gotten some carry over for interview, analysis, etc.

I was floored they didn't go after MLB any harder. That seemed like a no brainer. Even a weeknight or Sunday afternoon package, at least it's another one of the big four you can claim.
Here's another one: how about NBC losing Wimbledon to ESPN? Wimbledon was fine with putting the entire tournament on cable television. How good would that two weeks look on NBCSN? And it's amazing they didn't consider that when working out the new French Open contract. I know tennis certainly won't save it, but that would have been two marquee sports events on their network.
This business, now more than ever, is cutthroat. With your competitors ganging up to keep you down, seems pretty simple now. You have to overpay. It sucks, but it's gonna have to happen if you want any shot.
Oversold the gravity of it? In the heat of the moment, you're not factoring in the season before it. It was a halfcourt buzzer beater to win a game.
If anything, he undersold the gravity of it.

It's amazing how overlooked Ian Eagle on nearly every job he has. The only place he's the number one guy at is with the Nets. Doesn't get March Madness duties, NBA playoffs, NFL playoffs, and he's number two for the US Open.
On the same point, add Bill Macatee to the CBS sports broadcasting depth.

But the championship didn't really come down to the last race. It would have taken a miracle for Johnson to win, whereas last year Edwards and Stewart was as close as you could get.
DD1070 makes a good point, too. The iconic tracks need the stage at the end, even if Miami offers maybe the purest racing track on the circuit.

Would have liked to have seen Anderson get the ALCS nod again, but EJ has been there for so long, of course he'll get it. Not having Rojas this year is a bit of a shame, he was terrific last year.
I will say that even with Dick Stockton, I've enjoyed TBS's broadcasters for the playoffs, even if the production is a bit off.
