    PA Announcer ad libs -yeah or nay?

    I have to say, I'm loving them. He doesn't do it too often, and only when really deserved.

    First game - "Mr Jarvis, meet Mr Taylor"

    Today - "[So and so] is hearing the bells of Iowa State thanks to...."

    Don't recall any others.

    I don't know, but I find it pretty funny.

    Re: PA Announcer ad libs -yeah or nay?

    Editorial comments like those have no place at a college game, and maybe not at any level.

    Down, distance, spot, carrier, tackler, and the occasional 'get loud'. That's it.

    I guess I missed that at the the Kent State game. I agree, they have no place. Save all of that for the radio and tv guys.


    I removed it.

    Re: PA Announcer ad libs -yeah or nay?

    I think the comments are a good idea. If we can't "editorialize" on our own field for our own fans, who can?

    Big time YEA - It's our home field! No PA announcer I know of to date has ever won an Edward R. Murrow award. I loved it.

    You can bet that from now on I'm going to pay more attention to what he's saying. If there's a zinger in there, I want to hear it!

    As someone who has spent about two decades in the PA and radio fields, I think I'm qualified to give my opinion on the matter.

    Comments like "That's gonna leave a mark" and "He'll feel that tomorrow" are idiotic, and sound incredibly bush league when made over a public address system.
