Default Tommy and Todd

I don't often listen to our radio broadcasts, but when I do I'm always reminded of why I don't.

Both guys have been great Gamecocks and have done loads for the school but...

I guess my main issue is with Todd. I tend to give Tommy a pass as most schools have an ex-player doing color for the radio broadcasts, and they aren't expected to be professional broadcasters. But sometimes Todd makes me cringe...and he is "the Voice" of our program.

Am I being too harsh on Todd? Thoughts?

No, I've never really been a fan of his.

I love that he's passionate about it, and he is better than Charlie Mac was, but he's not a professional broadcaster.

Todd is no Eli Gold for sure. I am amazed that he still has a job in that role. He needs to be working for Carolina in some other capacity. I also don't think he shows professionalism when interacting with Tommy.

I am so glad that I don't have to listen to him every week for my gamecock football. Even if we had the best broadcaster in the land I still wouldn't listen.

I literally don't know how to listen to those guys if I had do so. Everytime I turn on 107.5 they run a loop that says "do to contractual agreements we cannot air the games". The same station mind you that had a major announcement informing all of us that their gamecock sports contract has been renewed.

Todd is a professional broadcaster. He used to do local talk radio then he and Corey did the rebroadcast on Wed nites. Ive listened to the games on radio for years even when televised. I like Todd.

Todd is bad, but he has slowly grown on me over the years. Kind of like an old drunk uncle: funny sometimes, but you never want anyone outside of your family to see him associated with you.

learfield sports does not give them the contract to air games via internet or smart phone app... the games should be carried on the regular radio

They can't stream sports. You can listen to them online if you go to gamecocksonline.com, go to the event, and have a CBS All-Access account ($10/month). I do this during baseball season only, because all games at home, that aren't otherwise televised, you can stream the stadium feed + it has the 107.5 audio in real time. So I can watch home baseball games that I can't make it to, with the radio feed. You could also select just the audio. I would assume this is the same for football, you would be able to pay $10/month to hear Tommy and Todd stream the game.

The contractual obligation is with CBS sports that prevents them from streaming on 1075thegame.com for free.

And for the record I like Todd. I like his energy. I think Tommy brings just enough professionalism. I don't care to hear the facts read to me like a machine, I enjoy the passion and homerism when listening on the radio. WHO CARES?! WHO CARES?! After the DJ pick six is awesome!

I'm fine with both...Ellis will stumble from time to time, and Suggs often struggles to get the ideas out of his mind and into the spoken word, but both are passionate Gamecocks and you can tell they love it when we're winning games, which I do too....

I like Tommy and the classic touch he adds to the commentary.

Todd, eh...hard to say. He just seems a little off and doesn't have the best flow to be a commentator...doesn't seem "all there." However, he is a Gamecock and gets passionate.

I do like some of this one-liners whenever he is on point like last year against Clemson after Clowney had another sack on Boyd:

LET HIM EAT!

Revenge is something . . . . . . BOOM!

Classic Todd Ellis. I spoke to him about a year ago and got a picture with him and my wife and daughter. I actually got kinda stumbling over my words talking to him, which normally doesn't happen to me.

Walked up to him and said 'I've hated NC State my whole life!' (cause of Todd's injury there). Good guy.
