Keith Jackson quotes

I haven't made a video since January, when ZFR flipped me the bird and had YouTube block 2/3 of my account.  Apparently, compilation videos are fair game as all of them are still up.  With that said, I'd like to make one.  Ace's Keith Jackson thread made me nostalgic and since he broadcasted more Michigan games than any other school for nearly 3 decades, I thought I would make a vid dedicated to his most memorable quotes during Michigan football games.  

To help me out here, I want you all to list your favorite Keith Jackson quotes.  Whether they are pregame speak, calls of plays or random funny quotes like the time he said, "Clarence Williams grandmother could have scored that one," when we played Notre Dame in 97.  Stuff like that.  

And since I'm anti-misery, painful moments are not allowed.

So, list away if you can and I'll go find them.

There's one from the '93 Rose Bowl v. UW  that's always worth a chuckle. The camera catches a rear (end) view of Huskies OT Lincoln Kennedy in a three-point stance, causing Jackson to remark:

"And there's a moon rising over Pasadena."

Keith Jackson and college football go together like Craig James and hookers. Because he always killed it. I miss hearing that old man call football games, he was just so damn good.

Keith Jackson: "Now the Michigan Wolverines are assembled in the tunnel and the crowd is coming to it's feet, and when the Wolves come on to the field, you'll hear a roar that will knock pine cones out of trees 50 miles away."

Keith Jackson: Michigan offense is running consecutive rushing plays. Jackson says somethign like: "Oh my garsh! I mean they are REALLY blowing them off the ball now".

Something like

"And each one of the Michigan players was issued his own pick.  And so far so good.  BUT those are the Ohio State Buckeyes knocking on the front door and they come in with a WORLD of incentive.  The world know's Ohio State has come into this game the last two years undefeated and lost..."
