I might flip the order around depending upon which ones I've heard recently, but can't argue with any of these.

Skip Bayless would be in my 1-3 range, and I'd also have Craig Sager on the list. Thank God Stephen A. Smith doesn't work at ESPN anymore....

MUSTY-BURGER is the most biased announcer I've ever
heard in my life. I can't stand him on TV.

Craig James is a piece of work also. That whole deal
with his p*ssy son's migrane and Tech shows how he got
things done while at SMU. Nothing like integrity ! ! ! ! :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

OK, but please comfirm that it takes alot of "mellow yellow" during pregame to stomach a full 2 hours of Brent coverage..... without, it's just plain painful

I'm probably in the minority, but I like Musberger. Why? Because he is the voice of college football. Who's gonna take that title when Brent retires? Chris Fowler? Don't think so.. I don't see anybody else capable of filling that role for awhile.

Also Mike & Mike are cool, and Corso is a good guy. The rest of that list, meh. Berman is an ESPN great but there comes a time in a career when the legends don't shine in the same light they used to.. his time is up.

1. Tim McCarver - They guy drones on-and-on and makes watching baseball on TV miserable. It kills me Fox has the contract for a while I believe. You Ranger fans have to hate him after what spewed from his mouth in last years World Series.
2. Joe Buck - The guy thinks he is an expert in any sport he broadcasts. To have this guy, who has played no sport professionally, criticize a player and what he did on the field during a game is offensive.
3. Randy Cross - When will he get over the fact that the SF 49ers were a looong time ago and nobody cares how well they played and the role he played during their run.

FWIW - I also like how gracefully Musberger has gotten over himself from his CBS days and is now just a sports fan broadcasting games. He has mellowed and it shows.

Whoa Nelly.......there is only one voice of college football and that is Keith Jackson. No one, and I mean no one will ever duplicate his effect on the popularity of the game.

Sorry, I love Norm to death, even with his many faults!!! He was one of the first pioneers of sports talk radio in Dallas back in the mid-1980's when the pickin's were slim and none :yes:

We did a Wednesday Master's trip with him several years ago and talked NFL draft to and from Augusta. It was a blast.
