Default RIP Keith Jackson

http://www.espn.com/college-football...on-dies-age-89

Some of you on this board may be too young to remember him, but he was truly THE VOICE of college football. I remember the games he called and voice cadence like it was yesterday. He will be missed. The absolute best.

IIRC he was pretty anti-Notre Dame. RIP Mr. Jackson

He was the granddaddy of them all. Best CFB play by play announced ever....even if he didn't like ND.

Coined the term “big uglies” when it was a battle up front...

Later became the theme for my college hook-ups...

Just sayn...

Agreed. Sometimes I'll put games on mute and try my best Keith Jackson play by play. One of those iconic sports voices that I got to grow up with like Harry Cary and Howard Cossell.

He was so slanted when we played Michigan. I hated him for that. But looking back, the man was a heck of an announcer. RIP
