    all time dumb color commentary.

    Wes sighed out a “jeez” in response.

    It reminded me of the color commentary from "Best in Show"

    They would be better off if they got rid of that idiot and hired Roddy Jones.

    If I were Roddy, I'm not sure if I would leave ESPN for Fox Sports South.

    That reminds me of a game at VT years ago when we killed them (2006 I think) - critical part of the game and Paul McGuire brings up something about Brittany Spears during a time out. Other announcers were like wtf?

    I thought that was FSU 2008... or was that the one when the announcer goes “that’s what I just said...”?

    That is hilarious. Apparently Nessler and McGuire didn't get along.

    It's been 11 seasons since that game and we still haven't figured out how to cover the slant on 4th down. :dunno:

    This was my favorite announcing team of all time. Nessler always did a good job - sorry he is now teamed with that good at stating the obvious Danielson - right? Griese was really good but a little dry and although McGuire was goofy, his goofiness was somewhat needed and actually he could make some good points occasionally. I miss their announcing.
