During the Michigan State vs. Wisconsin game.
He's always said he was a Michigan fan.
BATISTA WITH THE CATCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love me some Gus Johnson.
DOWN THE SIDELINE!!!!!! CAN THEY CATCH HIM??!? STOOKLEYYY!!!!!!!!!
batistia with the caaaAAAATCH!!! **
Ya Gus loves the Wolverines. He grew up in Detroit and has been a diehard UM fan is whole life.
And grew up in the D. Good for him!
And he went to college at UDM. He's Detroit (and Catholic) through-and-through.
Gus Johnson went to U of D Jesuit High School - not University of Detroit-Mercy (college). He graduated from Howard University.
His voice eerily sounds like his real voice...
Considering it is HIS voice and all...
Why would it be different???
made my day....that and thinking about Gus Johnson doing the play-by-play of one of Michigan's football games and the nicknames and sayings he could come up with for Denard!
Best. Announcer. Ever.
he called out jim jackson on BTN when the wolverines played osu in basketball in AA and they introduced Hoke that night saying that he should get ready for his wolverines to come get osu this year. He loves him some Wolverines HA HA!!!! Go Blue... big win today over PSU.
I thought it was a friendly conversation and Jackson was trying to be professional and non-partisan. I think JJ is one of the best basketball guys announcing right now. Unlike the douche ESPN uses for football (Robert Smith), I think JJ is class and really is a fan of and represents the B10 well.
But Gus was tryin to get him hyped up a little bit in the conversation thats what I meant but yes i agree JJ is a tremendous commentator and always gives us a lot of respect during games
Gus Johnson is amaaaaaaaazing....seriously, the Kansas State - Xavier game from the 2010 NCAA Tourney was made 50x more awesome just because he was announcing it. Double overtime?! Sweet. Classic hardfought battle? Even better. GUS JOHNSON going nuts? I REFUSED to do my homework that night
"I love the Big Ten. I'm a Big Ten guy. My Wolverines are coming on, too. (incredulously): They don't need a new coach."
Fire Millen. ( Again) Hire Gus!
Hell yes. Always loved Gus Johnson. By far, my favorite basketball commentator. Didn't know he was a Michigan fan.
Good article in the Daily about this: http://www.michigandaily.com/content/broadcaster-and-michigan-fan-gus-jo...
You may have seen this already but this is possibly the only thread where it is acceptable to post the Gus Johnson Soundboard. And yes, I frequent this often.
i dont balme you i love the guys voice, honestly its so much more exciting when he calls games!
