Just like last week we're getting right into this thing starting at noon. I don't know what we're going to do without Pammy today, but if you have a quote be sure to add it to the comments!
College Football Announcing Schedule: Week Six
"This one time....at band camp."- Chris Fowler
"This is an old-fashioned Big Ten game where both teams like to ground it out on the ground"- Ray Bentley (Via Smitty)
"You know it's interesting.......Minnesota is in the redzone. This trip to the redzone is brought to you by Hotel.com."- Wayne Larrivee
That really IS interesting!
"Mitch King with some serious penetration. He's a beast."- Ray Bentley (Via MD)
"And the communicator, Steve Newman."- Ray Bently
"Newman!"- Clay Matvick with the worst impression ever
"When you first see him, you think 'wow, this guy's not even big enough to be small'". Some FSN pregame guy talking about Ok. St. QB Zac Robinson (Via James)
"That is not Michael Phelps there at left tackle." - Andre Ware (Via S2N)
"It's Auburn's obligation to hold the score down." - Lou Holtz, during OU-Baylor highlights (Via S2N)
"For Dave's purposes, I'd call it a two-club wind." Dave Baker on winds in Florida-Arkansas game. (Via Joe)
"Joey Elliot has that gunslinger mentality; he knows the offense." - Andre Ware
God save us, both announcing teams in these Big 10 games don't have a whole lot to talk about, and Ray is off his game without Pam around.
"Sheets has one man to beat!" - Dave Pasch, as Sheets breaks the tackle, but is hit and stopped by 3 Nittany Lions five yards later (thanks Ryan)
"It's perfect weather for a football game. I almost thought about going down there and putting on a helmet and some shoulder pads, but I didn't want to choose between the black uniforms and the white ones, so I decided to stay up here with you." - Andre Ware
"Watch Greenwood come in and fill this hole, and watch Ringer beat him in the hole." - Ray Bentley
(Giggles like a 12-year old.)
"Two years ago, Julian Edleman made this game for the Wagon Wheel his own personal playpen." Michael Reghi, on Kent State-Akron game (via Joe)
"They are going to play bully ball, right up in the wheelhouse." - Doc Walker on BC-NC State, and the next play, BC's QB goes around the line for a TD. (via JG)
Bonus from Wednesday's La Tech-Boise State tilt:
"That makes me happy." - Rod Gilmore, noting the alternating blue and orange in the Boise student section.
"So we have a happy Gilmore." - Joe Tessitore (via JG)
"My favorite formation; victory formation. You know you're putting a stamp on this game when you see that one." - Andre Ware, as Penn State takes knees.
"The double cheeseburger guys gave him time."
"He could have paid his taxes with that protection." - Doc Walker, after a 65yard TD pass by NC State (via JG)
"If [Kentucky] cannot make Alabama stand up and dribble with their left hand, they will not win this football game." - Gary Danielson, mixing metaphors and sports again
"And Iglesias takes it in for the score to make it 35-7." - Rece Davis
"And that makes the score before the Texas game 0-0." - Lou Holtz (via Anon)
"There is a lot of brass, stars and stripes here." - Anne Marie Johnson, at Navy/Air Force
"The opening kickoff goes out of the end zone at this altitude." - Tim Neveritt at the same game. (via JG)
Ah, glorious Versus production values.
"You know, John Parker Wilson, it's like a spelling bee. He's good with most of the words, but when it comes to spelling one with more than eight letters, it's a problem." - Gary Danielson on JPW's QB rating, and I have no clue what he was trying to get at.
"This is just a classic example of a guy hitting the hole quickly." - Paul Maguire (via Fairplay)
"I hope she's the one in the middle." - Gary Danielson, as the camera goes for a shot of JPW's mother, who is right in the MILF category.
"I remember when the world used to stop when these two played." - Tim Brando
"Amazing they can play in relative anonymity. No Wide Right III this year." - Lundquist, after an update on FSU / Miami (via JG)
"That punt hadn't even gotten to the 50 and Javier Arenas was waving fair catch." - Verne Lundquist
"Guess he reads Forbes magazine!" - Gary Danielson
"If you didn't know, Forbes named Nick Saban the most powerful coach in sports." - Verne
"Javier wrote the blurb for the issue." - Gary
"Ed is doing what we call cheating." - Ron Franklin after a booth shot showing Ed Cunningham looking in a media guide for the answer to the trivia question. (via JG, who just said his GamePlan paid for itself with that quote)
Ron Franklin is my personal leader for Quote of the Day so far, but it's a dead heat with Gary the Horndog's assessment of JPW's momma.
"We are at the Big House, which is under construction. Also under construction here is a great Big 10 match-up." - Dave Lamont (via Bazooka Jones)
"Only the second interception off the arm of John Parker Wilson this season." - Danielson (via Bazoooka Jones)
So, he's had another one bounce off his arm before he throws it?
I'm gonna relax a little before I've got some places to drive to tonight. Leave quotes for the night games and we'll scoop 'em up come Monday.
"They threw the flag because the punter tried to kick the ball off the ground."- Paul Maguire
"That couldn't have happened the ball never got through to the punter."- Bob Griese
"Once you get wet, you only get wet once."- Bob Griese
"There's the line of the day, tell Stacey Dales that!"- Brad Nessler
"You look at his arms and it makes you want to go to gym."- Mark Jones
"I hope she's the one in the middle." - Gary Danielson, as the camera goes for a shot of JPW's mother
I worked in the CBS truck in Tuscaloosa today... when Danielson uttered these words, about 4 or 5 people said, "What did he just say?" (Via Anon)
"He stopped on a dime and didnt leave the ducks any change"- Mark Jones
"Wisconsin has won 22 of their last 22 night games, including 11 in a row."- Todd Blackledge
"Wells up the middle inside the 30 to the 24. Which is fine to say, but not on a 1 yard run."- Mike Patrick
