I don’t know about you, but it sure gives me a pleasantly warm feeling to see ESPN roll out its broadcast teams announcement and not find Craig James’ name anywhere on it.
Filed under ESPN Is The Devil, The Honorable Craig James
Is Ron Franklin anywhere on the list?
Hw was a good one IMHO.
Uncle Ron is gone and ain’t coming back.
Damn that perky little cupcake!
I don’t miss seeing Craig James’ name. I do miss seeing Ron Franklin’s name, though.
Anyone know what Franklin is doing these days?
Settled his wrongful termination suit with ESPN and retired.
What’d Uncle Ron-dog trot out that put him in hot water, butter buns or some such?
Close. He called ESPN’s Jeannine Edwards “sweet baby”.
I thought they fired him for not responding well to constructive criticism:
Edwards says she told Franklin not to address her like that. Franklin responded, according to Edwards: “OK, then listen to me, a—hole.”
Nest to Keith Jackson, Ron Franklin was the best. Whoa, Nellie…
I agree !
“And. He. Could. Go. All. Th-arghhhh (sounds of choking, larnyx being crushed, then silence).”
Slight thread hijack…does anyone have experience with the College Radio App? Specifically, whether or not Georgia games are available or blocked? It appears this app just rebroadcasts all the major football radio station live internet broadcasts, but Georgia blocks theirs/ours, so I’m thinking this app doesn’t get get the games.
My head is just going to explode when Musberger opens the UGA / Clempsun telecast.
Here’s the cure. Take an extra shot every time Horn Dog puts his hand down his pants or Herbie’s and says:
(a.) “You see that lovely lady there,”
(b.) “She does go to Auburn by the Lake,”
(c.) “But she’s also Miss South Carolina,”
(d.) “But she’s also Miss Georgia,”
(e.) “You quarterbacks, you get all the tail,”
(f.) “What a beautiful woman. Wow.”
When oh when is BM going to give it up? Lord, I love Kirk, but he needs a better play by play caller. Was happy to see Craig leave Game Day, but mostly cause Kirk took his place. Why so down on Craig, Senator?
Kirk sucks plenty, too.
RE: Today’s thread – giving Kirk credit. He is the best on Game Day. Chris Fowler is also wonderful. Coach….well, he is very old.
Herbstreet is a tool. Can’t stand him. Between him, Mark May, and Holtz ESPN is the worst. If I wasn’t a Georgia fan I’d probably hate Pollock as well. Desmond Howard and Fowler are pretty good.
So, because you are a Georgia Fan, you are okay with Pollock and think Desmond and Chris are pretty good. Three of out five ain’t bad. Personally, I think guys are just jealous of Kirk. He is so accomplished and the best looking guy on ESPN!
Seriously Joy, do you think Herbie is prettier than the ‘Tard?
Of course I do. The ‘Tard is really cute, but he’s not my type. He is probably more knowledgeable than Kirk.
“If I wasn’t a Georgia fan I’d probably hate Pollock as well.”
What a relief! I thought it was just me
Just get a real radio and dial it in, good luck with the delay and tv.
They build a big ol’ fence around Texas to block foreign signals.
+1 for the NRBQ handle
