Welcome back to our weekly installment of The Pam Ward Chronicles. I'm going to be keeping track of the Announcing Quotes throughout the day and I ask that you join in. Please leave any that you come across in the comments or feel free to email me at AwfulAnnouncing@Gmail.com.
Your College Football Announcing Schedule: Week Thirteen
Oh no! Pam and Ray are having audio problems and Stan Verrett and Jesse Palmer are calling the MAC Championship from the studio. That's not a good way to start the day.
"He said he was a chubby little red baby."- Ray Bentley on Central Michigan LB Red Keith
"This is a huge game obviously a MAC Championship, it's a Conference Championship, but Miami is 6 and 6 on the season and they win they're MAC Champions and they will get into a Bowl. They lose and they're done."- Pam Ward
Someone needs to tell Pam that six wins gets you into a Bowl this year.....and every year.
I take it back Pam....you were right. Because they'll finish under .500 they're out of the running. They would have been better off not making the Championship Game. I'm sorry my love.
"Well, I don't understand [the triple option] as well as some, but I understand football, and they've gotta get a play going on third and long." - Boomer Esiason (Via S2N)
That's understanding football for sure.
"I'm sure you've done a couple of Patriots games in your day. I would tell every young Quarterback to watch how Peyton, excuse me Tom Brady utilizes the pocket to his advantage."- Boomer Esiason
We could just combine them into one person when making statements along these lines. Either Peyton Brady or Tom Manning would work.
"They didn't call me I was in Gameplan."- Boomer Esiason
"Yes, a DeNiro like performance from you, and a stretch playing yourself."- Ian Eagle
And we have audio problems again in the MAC Championship game. Oh man...they just went back to Pam and she didn't know she was on-air. Tough going for them today.
"The SEC Title Game Tennessee and Louisville, or LSU."- Andre Ware
"He's as good as it gets as far as a duel threat Quarterback. I'd put him up along side of Tim Tebow, Pat White, Matt Grothe...all those guys. I think Dan LeFevour is just as good if not better."- Ray Bentley
You think the fact that Bentley went to Central Michigan might have something to do with that statement?
"If they throw it to the left side of the end zone, they've got a good shot at hitting you. That'd be funny." - Brad Nessler to Paul Maguire (Via S2N)
Maguire looks funny as hell wearing those reading glasses and flying around on the Camera Truck. They keep showing shots of him about an inch from his nose.
"An Oklahoma win over Mizzou would create a cobweb of worms."- Craig James (Via Hawkeye State)
Referee: "Dead ball penalty. False start..."
Maguire: "...that's going to be a false start."
Good work there by Maguire talking over the official.
"What did he say about tackling Jonathan Stewart? You have to bring your big boy pads?"- Dan Fouts
"It's like going bear hunting with a stick."- Tim Brant
Exactly like that.
"Eric Ainge busted one. Watch the inside rub here."- Gary Danielson
It's about time Gary....I thought you were going to get through a game without a sexual comment.
Gary Danielson: on UT-LSU SEC Championship Game after fake punt: "This game has turned into a battle for the SEC Championship." (Via Anon)
"And he was not afraid taking a ball on the face."- Tim Brant on Oregon blocking an OSU FG.
"In college football, if the ball bounces off the ground, it's an incompletion"- Todd Blackledge (Via Jared)
"A fresh set of downs for the Steelers."- Mike Patrick
Hahaha....we may have a winner folks.
"And you can't review an incomplete pass."- Ed Cunningham
(Ref states there will be a review)
"Check that you can review it in the endzone."- Ed Cunningham
Aren't all complete/incomplete passes involving the sidelines reviewable?
