Rod Gilmore did tonight's GMAC Bowl, and he's done a couple other bowl games this post-season. I've watched a couple of his games during the season too, but can't recall whether any were Big 10 games.
Overall, I have to say as a color commentator he is growing on me. I think it's the tone of his voice (almost baseball announcer smooth). Always has a good $0.002 to add and has a few cutting opinions per game (Not Spielman crazy opinions, but on point and not afraid to cut down a play call or soft-play when appropriate).
Any other good/bad opinions of him as an announcer?
Second question: What's his background? College player I assume, where? When? Good/Great?
Either way, has to be 10x better than Pam Ward and Andre Ward...
