ESPN College World Series Recap Shows from Many Years Ago
I was a kid when they were around, so pardon any details not being accurate.
ESPN used to play CWS recap shows that would feature CWS from previous years. It seems like they would mostly play weekday mornings during the summer. They were 30 mins I believe. It basically showed highlights from various games of the CWS from whatever year.
You might be watching ESPN randomly one morning in 1997 and a 1993 CWS recap show would play showing a bunch of highlights from that CWS.
Does anyone remember these? Do you know if they're around anywhere? (Youtube,etc)

That sounds awesome. Every once in awhile I'll think back to how ESPN used to be and get sad.

I member. I used to record them on my VCR.

Probably on YouTube, but I'm not going to spoon-feed you.

They were amazing. I remember the old ones with Barry Bonds at Arizona St and Roger Clemens at Texas. I have no idea if they are on youtube, but they should be.

ESPN was so great at these highlight shows. And they aired them all the time because... well, they didn't have rights to anything save college sports.

I tried finding some on youtube before I came here. Not saying I put in the right search terms, but I couldn't find any.
Just wondering if anyone might know if they're on the internet anywhere.

You mean when you would wake up and they would have an hour of sportscenter (but on loop to play all morning) and it actually covered everything in the sports world instead of beating one story in the ground, show a few other sports related things, then go right back to beating the dead horse?

They would show them during rain delays during CWS coverage.
I wonder if CBS prohibits it now since they televised some of those games back then including the national title game.

In the early 80s the CWS played day games that would start in the morning. I had 2 older brothers and we loved to watch those games. I remember the famous “fake pick off play” from back in one of those games.

1982 - Miami vs Whichita St

I remember those, usually around 9 or 10 in the morning the week before and during the CWS.

No time to run stuff like that anymore. Gotta save room for those awesome shows where 3-4 people sit across from each other and yell at one another

Crazy how great that was, and stupid they went away from that. I used to watch SC every single morning as a good. I knew who won each and every MLB, NBA etc game and saw highlights from most of them. Always knew the standings, stats etc. Now you might hear about 2-4 MLB teams a show. I didn't even know the NHL season was going on until the playoffs started and they talked about it on sports radio. Really sad what ESPN has become. Outside of live games, nothing is worth watching anymore.

There’s one on YouTube about Colgate wake forest for the title. 1950something. Crazy how few people were there as today.

Man I miss these! As a kid, I was glued to the tv when they came on. Was just remembering these the other day.

Good memories!

Gotta make sure you have a female leading the conversation and a black dude, Asian dude, and the most feminine white dude you can find all yelling at each other and making a lot of pop culture references

I searched just what you said and found the '91 one. A guy named Steve Whitaker posted it. Its actually way better than I remembered with the narrator, interviews, etc.

I tried the same search with '96 and couldn't find that one. Any chance you or someone else knows where that one might be?

ESPN isn't your fathers ESPN. Every SJW on there seems to have some sort of talk show.
