plus Herbie will make the Rose Bowl completely unlistenable
Yesterday afternoon, I was boredf watching the 1997 M v. ND game (Oh, how I miss a dominating defense) on BTN. The game was being announced by Keith Jackson and Bob Griese.
I found myself being reminded of why Keith Jackson was my favorite announcer of all-time and how much I miss his call on a Saturday afternoon. The way he told the story that was happening on the field, the quirky things he would say, and just the fond memories I have of him announcing Michigan games really stand out for me.
So, I wanted to know from the MgoBlog community, who are your favorite sport announcers/broadcaster of all time?
Of course, it was riddled with praise of Tim Tebow and how Brent feels Tim will be an outstanding NFL quaterback. He even mentioned that Tebow would do well to be used in the wildcat formation.
At any rate, my attention faded, as Musburger was saying the same things everyone has already said concerning Florida, Oklahoma, and Texas. He caught my attention when he said that all these big-name schools being dominant will allow for a very entertaining football season. He then mentions off-hand that if only Michigan could be great this year, the upcoming season would be phenomenal, to paraphrase.
While watching, I had mixed feelings. I was exciting that we were being mentioned, albeit as a side note, among teams that are hot and hyped. However, I felt dissatisfied that we are basically being mentioned as former giants that have been dismantled. I, for one, am ready to see Michigan return to the national spotlight in a positive way.
Side note: Musburger also postulated that the Nittany Lions could make the title game if they run the table. Just thought I would mention that.
