    Favorite sports announcer(s)

    Who is your favorite announcing team in sports? I'm not talking about John Walters for Iowa State or Vin Scully for the Dodgers, but the top "National" team for each individual sport.

    Re: Favorite sports announcer(s)

    I really enjoy Sean McDonough. I think he does a good job in football, basketball, and he even does the College World Series. I think the team of him, Jay Bilas, and Bill Raftery call great college basketball games.

    Second this. Now that they got rid of Billy Packer, almost every CBS team come tourney time is really a pleasure to listen to.

    Also, Fran Fraschilla. The guy knows his stuff.

    And, in a non-basketball context, Jim Nantz of CBS. Listening to him at The Masters every year harkens back to the 'glory days' of television. Not always perfect, but I really enjoy his stuff.

    Of course, now there's a poll. We always tend to complain about the commentary on for our games, on channels like FSN, Versus, or ESPN+, but at the top, there are really some good people.


    My first ISU basketball game - Fred Hoiberg was on the court.
    My first ISU football game - Paul Rhoads was on the sidelines.
    But they hadn't yet reached their full potential.

    SO PROUD that things have come full circle. #cyclONEnation

    Re: Favorite sports announcer(s)

    Costas is great. I like Musberger. Always have loved him when he did the OSU-UM games on ABC, especially when Keith Jackson was still there.

    WHHHHHHHOOOOOOOOOAAAA NEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLY

    HERE COME THE BUCKEYESSSSSSSSS

    In my best Keith Jackson voice, which is not too bad if I don't say so myself.


    I'm on Twitter too: Tre4ISU

    Or so I have read.
