Is it McDonough-Millen or Spears-James, I can't seem to find it on M Go Blue. In a related note, does Brad Nessler still call games for ESPN/ABC, can't recall hearing him this year.
this may be of some local interest
WCBN has the call!
Sure to be an emotional final home game from Seniors Rushi Vyas and Jeremy Kreisburg.
and while i still hate millen for what he did to the lions he's a pretty good nfl/college analyst.
You've got to be kidding..
If I hear Millen say "Shank-you very much!" one more time I'm going to kick a puppy...
I posted this on Monday, I think. I'd rather have McDonahough over Dave Pasch. While I admit that I'd like Griese/Spielman, Millen doesn't really bother me that much. I'll take the better play by play.
Do people really get that worked up over announcers? I watch a game and most of the time I hardly hear a word they say.
Announcers are like referees. When you have good ones, you never notice they were there. I don't have problems with decent to great announcers. When I have an announcer who is consistently getting names wrong, labeling plays wrong, overacting, or just continually says things that just make me want to make my face go into my palm (stupid puns being overused like Minor is "major", dumb catchphrases like "partner"), it distracts me from the game.
One of my bigger issues is when moderating a CiL. I don't get to watch the game, instead I'm having to look over comments people are submitting. Most of what I get from the game is from the announcers.
So yeah, great announcers you remember for being good. Good announcers you don't even notice. Bad announcers detract from the game through distraction.

Reason 201 why I have huge respect for the mods, and why I will never be one.
i wish that lou would do a michigan game... between moosman, jason olesnavage, and martavious odoms, he'd have his hands full with those "suffering succotashes"
[edit: last year it was nessler, griese, and clown mcguire at noon on espn on abc for the osu game. i know that this team has been disbanded]
More importantly, who is working the sidelines?
