Palmer's redeeming quality is that Clemson people hate him. Isn't he the one that got them all flustered because he mispronounced Dabo? He was saying Dawbow. He said some other things that really got them into an uproar. Maybe somebody remembers what it was. Because of it, there was a petition to ESPN by Clempson fans to ban Palmer from broadcasting Clemson games. Very amusing.

Finnebaum is an unmitigated disaster. Alabama fans hate him because he is constantly lying and starting things. He is not considered an Alabama homer by any means in Alabama. He is like MORON except also with a call-in radio show where he tries to create friction and controversy to boost his ratings.
Great comparison LOL. Maybe "obsession" is a better word than "slant" when talking about him and Bama. He is an irritating SOB either way.

I don't like this. Musburger is a tater.

Should've been Brad Nessler, Lee Corso, and Kirk Herbstreit

Wonder if he'll introduce himself as Kirk Herbstreet again!

That was epic!

I think the book, "I Never Played the Game" was actually written by Musburger, not Cosell.

I still can't get out of my head from years and years ago how he announced a Southern Cal game and must have emphasized the quarterback's name damn near 100 times. "John David Booty" he kept saying over and over again. I swore then that he must have had a thing for the guy.

Katherine Webb, however, would say that he's at least a switch hitter!

I really don't care who calls the prime time game, all I want to know is if I'm going to be able to see it on DirecTV, and how much extra is it going to cost me?

I like Musburger. He's my second favorite announcer behind Ron Franklin.

I think Brent is a great announcer, and very competent, but I wonder how much he really understands the culture of SEC football. He hasn't really done too many games involving southern teams, for most of his career, except bowl games, and recently some A-she-she games.

He's a pretty heavy drinker, so he'll fit right in at the LSU games!

I hope he'll go as ape shit over our entrance as he did for cLIMPson's entrance.

To be honest I never really liked him. Its hard for me to listen to sports announcers who have never played the games they announce. And Musberger really does appear to be a jerk as well.

I agree. However, in this case, BM is on the record repeatedly for decades on his love for Clemson and the Esso club. I remember trying to stomach it in the 80's with Danny. As far as his feeling towards USC, I have no clue.

Here is Brent in a Clemson parade in 1984. They were on probation with a TV ban that year.

Diddo. Maybe he won't have the position very long. Will he ever retire?

He is a bloated, liver-spotted fool...maybe he will daydream about rubbing up some tata's and blurt it out over the air, thus ending our punishment...senile old nut-sack.

Maybe reminiscing about how talking to Frankie Valli about a piece of Christmas tail he nailed in 1963 got turned into a song gets hime out of here.
