AA Introduces......

Wednesday, August 29, 2007


With the College Football Season starting tomorrow, and 25-Hours of ESPN programming dedicated to the Sport, FanIQ has collected the Top 10 CFB Quotes of all-time. AA hopes to add a few to that list this year which is why we're starting up a thread on Saturdays and Sundays this year for AA, The Channel 4 News Team, and YOU! to add any good/bad/hilarious/idiotic comments you hear throughout the weekend's Football action.

The problem is that I'm not clever enough today to come up with a name. There could be separate ones for College and Pro, or a name for the whole weekend. I need your help. If there's one genius enough person out there who can name this fiasco (yes I know that The Hugh Johnson Project is already taken) will win a sweet AA Ozarks T-shirt. It's a small gesture, but we need to name this bad boy.

Maybe some of these 10 hilarious quotes will inspire you.....

10. "We didn't tackle well today but we made up for it by not blocking."
- John McKay, USC

9. "I've found that prayers work best when you have big players."
- Knute Rockne, Notre Dame

8. "Football is not a contact sport-it is a collision sport. Dancing is a contact sport." - Duffy Daugherty, Michigan State

7. "Lads, you're not to miss practice unless your parents died or you died." - Frank Leahy, Notre Dame

6. "The man who complains about the way the ball bounces is likely to be the one who dropped it." - Lou Holtz, Arkansas

5. "Football is only a game. Spiritual things are eternal. Nevertheless, Beat Texas." - Seen on a church sign in Arkansas prior
to the 1969 game.

4. "Motivation is simple. You eliminate those who are not motivated."
- Lou Holtz, Arkansas

3. "I could have been a Rhodes Scholar, except for my grades." - Duffy Daugherty, Michigan State

2. "At Georgia Southern, we don't cheat. That costs money and we don't have any" - Erk Russell, Georgia Southern

1. "I don't expect to win enough games to be put on NCAA probation. I just want to win enough to warrant an investigation."
- Bob Devaney, Nebraska
Your ideas in the comments please.

P.S.- Let's try to stay away from the word "Project". I don't want to completely bite off of MJD's creation.

"The kids are playing their tails off and the coaches are screwing it up" - John L Smith immediately after a graduate assistant put the fire drill field goal unit on the field leading to a blocked field goal and a touchdown for Ohio State. It's really much better with the video of him screaming at jack arute.

"You stupid shit!" - Navy's Head Coach in the closing minutes of their 2002 loss to Notre Dame. He was expressing his opinion regarding his quarterback's decision to not run out of bounds when tackled.

What was the quote Lloyd Carr said to a sideline reporter a couple years back? Something like "What kind of stupid question is that?"
Still love that one.

For some reason I feel this thing may have to be named for Pam Ward, as she has the highest ratio of dumbest things said in the booth. How we name it, I don't know.

"The systems of offense are different. This is much more multiple. We saw some multiplicity last week. This is much more multiple in that they are never in the huddle so they don't give you a chance to get in the huddle." From former SU coach Paul Pasqualoni...I give you Much More Multiple.

Much More Multiple...ha.

I'm thinking the "Pam Ward Chronicles" for Saturdays might be a winner.

Anything for the Pros?

How about Enberg's Alive! for sundays..

I think that since this blog is devoted to awful announcers we should always be reminded of the king of the genre, Brent Musburger. So I believe it should be named "You Are Looking Live..." or perhaps, "Open Container Law"

Those suck about as much as Brent does...

I like "The Pam Ward Chronicles."

Not bad on the Enberg's Alive, anon. I would go with something Joe Buck related, although that means I'm tempted to suggest "Joe Buck Hearts Pam Oliver."

Maybe "Buckbot Blather."

Whoops...I misread what we were after...

For Sundays...I kind of like "The Tony Siragusa Explosion"...

What about just Pam's Ward.

No one ruins watching your favorite team quite like emphatic touchdown call of Ms. Ward.

I will never, ever forget this one. Conclusion of 1997 Rose Bowl (tOSU v Ariz. State). I was putting together the sports section for the Jacksonville (NC) Daily News, and the following sent our wire editor into spasms of laughter:

MUSBERGER: "Alright, let's go down to the field now and Jack Arute!"

(say it out loud ... )

"That was just instinct. Kind of like running from the cops." Marquis Weeks on his 100-yard kickoff return in 2004.
