    Welcome to my nightmares:

    Sean McDonough: Bland and boring, no passion behind the mic. Even in a big game.

    Mike Gottfried: Babbling old fart. Loses track of what he's talking about. Painful to endure.

    Chris Spielman - most annoying
    Friday night ESPN Broadcast (Spielman and McDunough) - worst overall major network broadcast
    Bill Curry - most pretentious
    Mike Gottfried - lost his fastball long ago
    Gary Danielson - talks the most/knows the least

    Todd Blackledge - easily best in the business/carries the broadcast
    Eric Collins - most underrated/underutilized PxP man

    She "announces" at "College football games"
    Didn't specify PBP or color only...

    Try Trev Alberts. Now that he's gone in Bristol, he's found CSTV.

    Absolutely murdered the game for which he was assigned for color. Didn't know the region ... that's fine, but if you don't, STFU when those reference arise. He has knowledge, but there's a smarminess to him that still makes one want to smack the taste out of his mouth.

    Seems like everytime I see Eric Collins, he's butchering something obvious in observing the play-by-play. I don't tape all games like Dr. Z, and I can't give you a specific example, but I'm never surprised when he botches something on a broadcast.

    I'd rather take a boot to the nuts than listen to Bill Curry.

    The guy did have a stroke. That's why he's only on the ESPNU games now.
