Van Pelt Tops First Sporstcenter Anchor Rankings

After an intense preseason process, hours of research, and putting all the numbers into the system, Scott Van Pelt came out well on top of our first official SCA Rankings.  Here is how the first enstallment shook out, including a little bit about the #1 Sportscenter Anchor:


1. Scott Van Pelt     SCAR: 0.94175

Standing at 6’6”, SVP literally towers over the rest of his SCA competition, and proved his vertical and highlight prowess by sweeping our expert’s first place votes and putting .13 SCAR Points between himself and second place.  SVP’s charisma and creativity has finally been recognized as he has clearly established himself as one of ESPN’s newest renaissance men.  A gig with Mike Tirico has turned into The Scott Van Pelt Show, which debuted two weeks ago and is currently doing the radio/tv split a la Mike and Mike.

SVP is incredibly consistent with his highlights, and his effortless enjoyment translates into an entertaining Sportscenter no matter who he is working with.  He posesses the qualities of many of the greats, and has put his name in the conversation with the likes of Craig Kilborn, Keith Olberman, Chris Berman, and Dan Patrick.

His friendship with Eldrich Tiger Woods has been parlayed into a gig on Tiger 2010, and his crossover success should continue to grow.  As good as he has gotten, he comes in at #1 because of his ability to still come across as a down to earth guy.  For all the praise we’ve given SVP, if you haven’t ever heard the legendary voice mail he once left a lost love, I suggest you check it out here (  Enjoy.
