    Thumbs down
    ****ie V and Billy Packer are probably the most irritating. Brent Musburger really struggles with football, may be the worst of the big-time announcers. Bill Walton can be hard to listen to.
    Terry Bowden.


    Thumbs up
    I really like Brad Nessler and Kirk Herbstreet (probably more because of EA than their real jobs). Keith Jackson is the all-time greatest college football announcer. I like Pat Sumrall better than Madden.
    Bill Curry
    Tim Brando

    I love Musburger and don't get the argument people make about him hating OSU.

    His thing is he always tries to hype up the underdog to keep it interesting and usually OSU is not the underdog.

    I'd have to add Gary Danielson to the thumbs up list. I enjoy listening to him and Musburger.

    I think Vitale is a total idiot. If you cut the guys hands off he would'nt be able to speak. Packer always comes across to me as being pompous.

    I agree with you Thump. Of all the commentators, Musburger is one of the easiest to listen to. He and Danielson work very well together. MUCH better than the other ABC morons. Keith Jackson might've been the best ever, but he should've retired 10 years ago. He really struggles now. Fouts is a PAC-10 homer. Ed Cunnigham and whoever he's teamed with suck. Griese and Nessler are average at best.

    Corsoe and Herby are good on Thursday nights, even though they work for the evil empire.

    As far as college basketball, they all suck. Packer and Dickie V are always creaming themselves over the ACC and Verne Lundquist and Bill Rafftery are horrible. Rafftery uses that stupid "mandaman!" statement every game, no matter if they're playing man or zone or whatever.

    i cant stand idiots like dickieV and raftery who only have jobs because they sound like retards.

    if you want me to go on TV and talk like im a 2 year old and just babble ill do it, its easier than knowing what youre talking about.

    Where do I start with this mess...

    Okay I'll give you Dukie V now is annoying. I used to like him, but now find his "act" over the top. I still like Packer...I think he does well for CBS. Musburger is by far the best football announcer there is. Plus he loves OSU...and those that think he doesn't must have the sound on mute. Bill Walton talks like he has marbles in his mouth but he calls NBA games so frankly I don't care. Bowden....eh.

    Herbie is good as a studio guy and analyst. I think Tirico actually teamed with him on Thursday's is great. Very excitable. Like him a lot. I actually think it is almost time for Corso to hang em up. He seems to have a case of "old-itis". He forgets a lot of stuff, and stumbles all the time... he is a good comic relief, but his best days are behind him. Kieth Jackson is worthless. He also has had his best days looooooong ago. I never cared for his bland boring style but now he is almost like Corso. Summerall is like the other two I just mentioned. I'm surprised he still knows his name. Curry & Brando... eh. Don't see enough of them to merit an opinion.

    I'll tell you who get's me more fired up than anyone hearing him calling a game is Gus Johnson from CBS. He did the OSU-Illinois basketball game.

    I believe he also did the Louisville- West Virginia game.

    I love guys who get excited.
