Alabama broadcast camera angles disgust fans as ABC receives heavy backlash
Alabama and South Florida suffered a weather delay on Saturday, and because of that, the cameras at the stadium were shut down or moved. So when the game resumed, there were new angles on the broadcast, and fans were not happy about the changes.
Alabama got off to a rough start before the delay, as USF opened the scoring, and the new Tyler Bucher-led offense sputtered out of the gate. Alabama then drove inside the 10-yard line before Ty Simpson was sacked from behind and the Crimson Tide settled for a field goal.
After Alabama forced a fumble to get the ball back, the Tide tied the game with 2:10 remaining in the first half.
Here’s a sample of the reaction:
Bama-USF deserves this camera angle.

The Alabama game being broadcasted with security cameras is all time stuff

I understand why all the cameras aren’t operational yet for Alabama-South Florida, but at least follow the ball on the sideline.

Honestly this Alabama game doesn’t deserve better camera angles

The camera situation during the Alabama/USF game is the epitome of what this season is like for Alabama so far. #RollTide

This is probably the worst game in Alabama football history . Not only are we losing to USF, we got a shitty camera angle with RG III and whoever else talking and making my ears bleed…..

Hey @abc this coverage of Alabama vs S Florida sucks. Why do you not have camera people back in position after a delay. You had plenty of time…..

Watching this Alabama game on ABC with binoculars. What is up with the cameras?

I’ve watched better cameras in small town high school games than those in this Alabama and South Florida game

@SickosCommittee I hope you’re watching the Alabama-USF game. After the weather delay, it appears they only have like four All-22 cameras working, one of which is covered in raindrops. Plus, USF up on Alabama.
