    He’s 78 years old and a recovering alcoholic. He was once the best IMO but he’s killed a lot of brain cells over the years and time has caught up with him.

    Re: Cotton Bowl Anouncers

    Why do you they still let him announce games? Do we need to hear about how wide Tech's splits are every snap?

    Re: Cotton Bowl Anouncers

    I said this is another thread but I'll repeat it here. Why does FOX get 5 of the biggest bowl games when they don't do regular season games? Honestly, they don't have the staff to put together a quality performance. Last nights Orange Bowl was just as bad.

    Fox only does 5 college football games all year, and they are the biggest games of the year. Stupid.

    Yeah but what about Brian Baldinger's permanently dislocated finger?

    This.

    I dug him back in the day. In fact, he carried Madden most of the time, which is an amazing feat.

    I still love hearing his voice, but he's a bit lost.

    On the bright, in two years it'll be ESPN. Which means a probable Tony Kornheiser-called BCS game.

    We couldn't help but comment on that during the last Vikings game (I think that's when I saw him last, can't remember for sure)...looks like he is making shadow puppets

    I doubt there would be a Kornheiser game. They would just fly Herby and Mussberger after every game. The games are spread out enough that its shouldn't be to hard. The only concern would be on New Year's day with the Rose Bowl and the second BCS bowl. However, they could just use the Craig James crew or May/Holtz crew.

    Summeral has lost it. I love his voice, but he doesn't have "it" anymore.
