    I could be wrong, but I've always heard that quote attributed to Jerry Duncan on the sideline before a UT game in the 1970s.

Seems like the games were done in 2 - 2 1/2 hours time back then. They made Bama legendary and bigger than life with their calls of the games.
    That sounds like my childhood!! Some good memories of listening to John and Doug.

    Good times listening to those guys. I'm fairly sure there was some extra mental lubrication involving adult beverages happening in some of those cold pressboxes back in the day... But they were great to listen to. And toss in Jerry Duncan on the sideline: (in Neyland) "Listen to them; they hate us! Well by God, I hate them too. Back to you, Doug."
