If you have two cameras, have one as the wide.
Use that almost all of the time.
Your second camera is your close-up.

Start the play in the wide.
Have the wide follow the play.
Have the tight follow the play.
Cut to the tight as the players are getting up/coming back to the huddle.
Reframe the wide on the line of scrimmage when you are in the tight.
Cut to the wide when the player who made the play is back to the line of scrimmage.
Reframe the tight on the QB or an inside linebacker who is calling out assignments (depending on camera position) for the pre-snap reads.
Cut to a tight.
Cut back to the wide with enough time before the play for viewers to see the formation/coverage.
Stay on the wide for the play.
Go back to the tight as players are getting up.
Repeat.

This will give you the action of the play and the emotion of the players without asking very much of your camera operators.

As for producing the video broadcast, have someone watching the feed and adjust as you go. If someone can't be heard, move the microphone or get another microphone. If the commercials are twice as loud as the broadcast, adjust the levels. I understand that much of this is done on not much of a budget, but not fixing simple problems broadcast after broadcast amounts to nothing more than laziness/not expecting much of yourself.

As for the 15 minute interview with a Colgate legend during the middle of the broadcast, all I could think watching the video feed was that the people listening on the radio must have been losing their minds.

The broadcast was weak at best. Made me dream of yesteryear....back in the day....when Doug Rosnick was doing the color. Entertaining stuff. Is Rosnick available or has he got a real job?
