I Miss Brent

    Never thought I would say this but I do miss the big game feel and energy that
    Brent Musburger brought to big college games.

    Chris Fowler just does not have the gravitas to make it work.

    Miss Keith Jackson more on the day of his 86th birthday but would settle for
    Brent and all his quirks.

    Brett from Match Game or Brent from Billings?

    It wasn't just Brent, he had a great dynamic with "Herbie" that oddly enough Fowler just doesn't have. Fowler is good, but vanilla. I think part of the deal with younger announcers, is that they didn't spend time in radio. I can't think of a big time call from Tirico either.

    CBS has Lundquist
    NBC has Michaels
    Even Joe Buck at Fox has had a few good calls. And Gus Johnson.

    On this line, I will tune into the Sunday night game that Al Michaels is calling -- just because it's Al. Enjoy his work, his seriousness about the job but not necessarily about the call during the whole game.

    As odd as the Eminem / Brent gathering was last year, Fowler would have
    seemed wildly out of place in same circumstance.

    It's amazing the calls Al has had. He could have retired after "Do You Believe In Miracles? Yes!" but throw in "He did WHAT?!!" "We're having an Earthquake!" The Denkinger play, Dave Henderson's homer of Donnie Moore, traded for a cartoon character...

    As for the opening of FSU/ND.....Maroon 5? Seriously?

    Speaking of Brett Somers and football fellas, she wants Billick to line up under her center.

    I like Fowler as a studio host but he sucks at play by play

    Yup - Fowler brings no energy or excitement to play by play

    Vern and Gary Danielson are now the top big game team

    The thing with Brent was, when he was thrown into something like that where he was out of his element, it was almost as much fun as the game itself.

    It was like having your father interview Jack White.
