    2013 was a 2:30 kick.

    There was a period of time when Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles were the best, maybe ever. Then Keith became a total west coast homer and from then on he was hard to take. Don't why know other than the fact that he had moved to the west coast and spent the last years of his life there. If I remember correctly, he grew up in south Georgia, NW Florida. I guess he just caught the west coast bug.

    The final 3rd of the game (20 mins or so) will be night-time. So crunch time will still have a night game feel.

    But good news for us is that Jalen plays his best in Prime-time under bright lights.

    Plus even as crazy as that place is it won't even remotely phase him. I like our chances in a 4th quarter fight no matter the atmosphere.

    Ol' Gar will pull a fast one, watch - It isn't dual-threat QBs anymore, it'll be that Stidham can throw a deep ball

    If you have a way to pause live TV, there is. Eli is usually 5-10sec ahead of the TV broadcast. You just pause the TV until the snap and voila.

    This game has, more often than not, been a 2:30 kick. I've always liked it because as it gets later in the game, it starts getting darker... the ultimate "hurry up, time's running out" feel to it.

    You are right - almost certainly at their production meeting or specific instructions during the game. They are all at the command of their producer. Gary even admitted recently that he has the final say on nothing regarding themes and even some phrasing.

    This here is a family friendly site, but you can probably get away talking about bride jumping over on the non-sports page! Ha!!!

    Baseball has a lot of really good announcers. Chip Carey and Joe Simpson do a great job with the Braves. Theyíre on the air almost everyday so if you donít like the announcers they lose their job. Football commentators should take note.
    I don't listen anymore, but Joe Simpson was the best. Sutton drove me crazy, the ongoing game was simply a backdrop for his opinions about "things".

    Anyways, he says "backup player so and so on the defense is collapsing and over pursuing his gaps on the boundary and if I were (team name) I'd target that player."
    2 plays later they do just that and get a touchdown.
    Gary goes: "I guess coach what's-his-name was listening in to us up here! He did exactly what I said!"

    I said out loud, "Yah Gary, you're a genius and won't let anyone forget it."

    Knows his football and makes the games interesting but he's only a few steps away from X-rated self gratification on national television. That's the part that grinds on me. It's never supposed to be about the announcers, he should never bring the attention back to himself.

    Kirk Herbatreit actually does a good job of not unnecessarily calling attention back to himself. I disagree with his analysis in-game than Gary but I think he has the mechanics of calling a game transparently down better than Gary.

    It's an art form guys and it is WAYYYY harder than it looks to do. Still, it is their profession but I do have some grace for them. I always hated listening to Brian Griese call games.

    I agree with all of your comments about all 3 guys: Danielson, Herbstreit and Griese. Herbstreit and Fowler are pretty good. I've always like Blackledge, though he sometimes seems a bit cool toward Bama. He once seemed like a fan.

    its mostly a matter of personal taste. for instance most give Nessler tons of praise. But i dont care for him at all. at times, i wonder if he's even in the booth watching the game. I love Gary though. Everyone will have their own personal favorites

The year when Ingram won hiesman every game he did he had to mention multiple times every game about his dad being in prison. OVER AND OVER again, and the little rant about AJ McCarrons girlfriend made me cringe at how creepy he is. With all the sex scandals going on right now I fully expect him to get outed soon. The guy is just a bad announcer, zero talent for on air commentary. Yes he knows football but he really needs someone to teach him how to stick to football and not rattle off every thought that crosses his little mind.
    that was musburger who played uncle mccreepy with aj's girlfriend
