MIAMI -- After a season in which one commentator after another opined about who's No. 1, network broadcasters turned surprisingly silent about the issue yesterday.
In fact, if it wasn't for ABC's Bo Schembechler, and NBC's Paul Maguire, we wouldn't have heard any opinions from either network about whether Miami or Washington was more deserving. Schembechler strongly endorsed Washington; Maguire supported a split championship.
The other announcers weren't willing to make such pronouncements.
Dick Enberg? No comment.
Bill Walsh? He'll pass.
Keith Jackson? No opinion.
Bob Griese? Don't ask him.
