Welcome back to our weekly installment of The Pam Ward Chronicles. I'm going to be keeping track of the Announcing Quotes throughout the day and I ask that you join in. Please leave any that you come across in the comments or feel free to email me at AwfulAnnouncing@Gmail.com.
I'll be back around noon, so if anything exciting happens during Gameday let me know, and I'll go back an grab some pics. See you then for the Game of they Year! Go Blue!!!
Your College Football Announcing Schedule: Week Twelve
Okay....here we go folks. It's cold, it's rainy, and that's Football Weather my friends. 30 minutes until game time!
Okay...Desmond Howard as a Old West Sheriff? Right.
"It reminds of how rappers would peddle their demos to artists...to some sort of publishing company."- Desmond Howard on Kansas QB Todd Reesing making a highlight tape to get a scholarship.
A 5'10" white QB handing out his "mix tape"....good analogy. Gameday also looks to be having some Monday Night Countdown audio problems with people being placed all throughout the Big House.
How much do you think the OSU and Michigan Bands hate playing each other's fight songs before the game?
"Northwestern, 7-0." Andre Ware after Rashard Mendenhall scores for Illinois. (Via S2N)
"Lets see if I can get this one right Pam."- Ray Bentley
"That will be a first".- Pam Ward
Oooooh a lover's quarrel!
"Keep you eyes on Chad Henne. His first two throws were erratic for a quarterback known for his accuracy."- Kirk Herbstreit
Really? I would think "accuracy" and "Henne" were antonyms. I can't wait until he graduates....I don't care if I'm jinxing him right now or not.
"These players are really getting a feel for the field as they're playing this Football game."Kirk Herbstreit
Really? Isn't that how it usually works?
Herby just referred to Chad Henne as "Chenny." (Via Kyle)
He's like Chessie....the Lock Ness Monster of the Chesapeake Bay. Okay sorry...that analogy was "Desmond Like". Sweet OSU Starter jacket in the crowd....what is this 1994?
"Is three years really enough time to judge if he's the right guy"- Pam Ward on 'Cuse Greg Robinson (Ummm - Pam, he's won 7 games in 3 years, Via Russianator)
Come on Russ...that's 2.333333 wins per year!
Erin Andrews just referred to "Gary Walker's passing" as the reason Fitzgerald became Northwestern's head coach. (Via Jim)
Hahahaha....isn't it Randy?
"The conditions are the virus affecting the computer that Jim Tressel puts in about taking care of the football." - Kirk Herbstreit after Todd Boeckman fumbles again.
That's just a horrible analogy.
An actual good call by Brent as Michigan was playing off of Robiske, and Boeckman hit him on the next play with a 6-yard out.
Dave Pasch just mentioned that Brandon Roberson (northwestern) was replaced by Tyrell Sutton as the starter two years ago and "hasn't gotten a carry since then." Roberson has had 74 carries this season, and possibly even a start. (Via Anon)
"They run the Quarterback draw like John Elway!"- Brent Musburger on Todd Boeckmam near the goal line
The "Boom" count for Herbie is up to 8.
"One more look at Mighty Mice....Fierce!"- Brent Musburger on Mike Hart
Pretty sure that nickname isn't supposed to be plural BM.
"Ahh, rivals, they spend a lot of time painting themselves up and undressing"- Brent Musburger (Via Smitty)
Yeah...Fall Out Boy coming back from the half. Thnks Fr Th Mmrs.
Lisa, we get it....it's raining. You don't have to ask both coaches how the weather is affecting the play of the game. And tone down all that energy....you look real happy to be at one of the biggest games of the year.
I know how you feel random guy behind the guy in the foreground. F'ing Beanie Wells. Could there be a worse nickname in Sports?
"Just a few minutes from Pasadena ahead 14-3."- Brent Musburger
1) There's 10 minutes left in the game.
2) That translates to about another hour of television.
3) Yes, I'm a bit bitter....I'm taking a shot now to calm down.
Well now that that's over with.....GO DUKE! (Never thought I would ever say that)
"This is a pass play when you call it in the huddle and how it chains........ges. Is like this."- Gary Danielson
"If he would have slowed down and put his butt to Jackson."- Gary Danielson
"I don't know many Big Ten QB's who can hit these types of balls"- David Norrie (Via Anon)
"Oklahoma stiffens when you get down in that red zone"- Brad Nessler (Hollywood Wags)
"He may be listed as offensive coordinator for Texas Tech, but saying Mike Leach has an offensive coordinator is like saying, I don't know, Rachael Ray has a private chef." - Brad Nessler (Via S2N
