Default A word about Todd Ellis (again)

Drove around listening to Todd Ellis talk about the team and preparation
for Football season. I know a lot of people who have said some bad things
about Todd's personality and attitude in his personal life, but I've said it
before and after listening to him again today, I'll say it again. Mr Todd
Ellis is 100% Gamecock, and I wouldn't want anyone else calling our games
in the booth during the season. He was talking up the team and it's current
national status as being a "Sexy" pick among the nations top programs
right now, and he spoke extremely well of the Carolina fans. He had a lot
of really good comments about the practices, and HE IS PUMPED to get
the season underway this year ! If I knew him personally I'd say the same
thing about him as I do our coach. He may be an A/hole to deal with on
a personal level, but as long as he "is what he is" on the job, I'm all for
him staying here as long as he is breathing and wants to be here.

Looking forward to hearing him and Tommy call our games again this year.

Like him or hate him, one thing can be agreed on.
He is 100% in the Gamecocks corner.

I listened to him today as well. I totally agree with you Spurt...wouldn't want anyone else calling our games...he does a great job in my opinion and absolutely love this University...

I loved what he told the North Carolina fan that called in...he said they don't allow Chardonnay and cheese into Williams Brice Stadium...hahaha.

Todd Ellis was as nice as could be when I met him one night after the call in show. He was in the back room at Wild Wings having a beer with a friend for an hour or so after the show. I was back there for a birthday part of one of my wife's friend's husbands (crap you get dragged to). I told her that was Todd Ellis and who he was, etc. She walked over and asked if we could get a photo, so we did. He was nice as could be! I told him I hated NC State my whole life for the broken leg.



The photo-bomber in the background was the birthday boy. Todd's friend he was having a beer with is in the booth on the left looking at his phone.

The past two seasons I've grown to like Todd more. The way he calls the games have become more entertaining.

I've met him a couple of times at tailgates and he's always been pretty nice to everyone. I did not know that he had a rep for being difficult or unpleasant.

Rick Henry was kind of a dick to me once when I he sat in a booth near me and some frineds at Rockaways many years ago. Maybe we caught him on a bad day during his dinner.

Default Re: A word about Todd Ellis (again)

I enjoy them...when I go to games I like to take a little mp3 player that also has a radio tuner, and listen to their broadcast of the game while I also watch. I prefer listening to them during televised games when I'm watching the broadcast live, even though the radio broadcast is a tad ahead of the TV feed (I always watch the game again later that night, so at that time I'll listen to the TV announcers).

Ellis has made a few gaffes over his career - the "45, 50, 55" thing he did during Ace's punt return TD vs ECU a couple years ago gets good mention a bit - but it's typically only a one-time thing and doesn't happen continually. That time he was clearly caught up in the emotion of a good thing happening for USC: I can't find much fault in that. He often stumbles and slurrs his words from time to time, but I still understand what he's saying and after all, he's not a professional broadcaster, he's only a part-time one.

I'm the kind of person that will love to go to a rock concert, or love a certain actor in movies, but couldn't care less about getting their autographs. I like to be entertained by them, but have no desire to connect with them personally. Ellis may not be the most engaging person in real life judging by the stories about him told here, but that doesn't matter to me....

Todd is a super nice guy, but like most people, he doesn't have time to listen to every half-wit's opinion on all things Carolina.

He is much more patient with the general public than I would be.

I still don't listen to our radio broadcast though.

My all-time favorite Gamecock. He was QB while I attended USC. Got a chance to meet him at a pep rally the day before the Independence Bowl and he was nice enough.

Default Re: A word about Todd Ellis (again)

A coworker and I were talking about him earlier today. We agree that we love the guy as the voice of the Gamecocks. He may not be so good at the informational side of calling a game, but I'll be d*mned if he doesn't get you excited about it.

To hear Tommy talk, you'd swear the guy was still in his late 20s / Early
30s. He sounds exactly the same now as he did when he was the
color guy with Bob Fulton, and when he was behind a mic after a game
when he was playing.
