Some announcer goodness from GA Tech / UVA:

"They fall forward" - Martin on GT's running game

"Watch the rejection here" - Doc Walker as GT's Jonathan Dwyer breaks a tackle

"Go to the unbalanced side, walk the dog"- Walker as GT scores a TD

"You want to win you gotta score a TD" - Doc Walker, UVA trailed 20-6 at the time

"He hits that one the band's playing" - Walker after UVA drops a TD pass


"UVA needs Mother Nature to be the 12th man." - Walker, maybe UVA shouldnt have kicked a FG trailing by two TDs in 4th, or give up a 10 minute drive in 3rd.

Probably the toughest place to play in the PAC10 for an opposing quarterback (about Husky stadium, shouldn't opposing QB's lose more than they win to be a tough place to play? 0-12 last year... Oregon is notoriously the toughest to lay for an opponent in the Pac10)

Tyler said...

(The headsets at Tennessee-Alabama aren't working):

Verne: "Well, I can tell you that the headsets aren't working but the PA system is! I can't stand listening to this song anymore!" (referring to Zombie Nation's "Kernkraft 400", now a common staple at sporting events)

That old Verne doesn't like any music made in the past 50 years, I think.

"I guess we dont have to worry about Clemson having no timeouts" - after CJ Spiller returns a kickoff for TD with 0:57 left in 2nd quarter

jgreul said...
Oct 24, 2009, 5:02:00 PM  

CJ Spiller is ridiculous as a kick returner. Every game, he has at least one return it seems like.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 5:08:00 PM  

I don't know much about Nascar, but Mark Martin owns that place. It's Martinsville, not Johnsonville, so I'm going with him. Now how's that for insight? - Matt Millen

The Blightning said...
Oct 24, 2009, 5:09:00 PM  

Martin's won twice there, but that's another dumb statement by Millen about something he doesn't know.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 5:14:00 PM  

Clemson and Miami are having a good game.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:04:00 PM  

I have found the Chip Caray of college football, and his name is Dave Koehn, the voice of the UVA Cavaliers. He took over for Mac McDonald in 2008, and is even worse than he was last year. Awful, just awful.

UnHoly Diver said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:04:00 PM  

How bad is he? Is he annoying?

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:07:00 PM  

What a hit on Michael Palmer in the Clemson game. You'll be seeing that.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:35:00 PM  

Dave Lamont: "Right down the fairway on that XP."

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:46:00 PM  

"Hard to believe this game started out 0-0." -- Dave Lamont

Not really. I think, oh, EVERY game starts out 0-0.

"Lincoln, going for the lead."

:04 left, there's no way that a over 40 yard field goal goes just three seconds.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 6:59:00 PM  

"Jacory Harris last 2 passes both went into end zone, one rigth, one wrong" - Dave Lamont threw Int returned for TD, thrn pass for TD

ROFL at the griese apology

justin said...
Oct 24, 2009, 9:10:00 PM  

It's a big deal for him, as nobody liked that joke when he made it.

Joe said...
Oct 24, 2009, 9:11:00 PM  

Eric Collins (after a Vanderbilt punt)- "Vanderbilt has to give it over on downs."

Joe said...
