“I have been overcome by the warmth of people.”

Uncle Verne is every bit the person you’d expect him to be.

It’s nice that Athens gets a second bite at the apple with him and it would be great to get a little revenge for 2013.

    Maybe he can do a little more dancing with Gary if we can make the stadium rock.

    When old people talk about being overcome with warmth, I have other thoughts.

    I know it has been said before, but why can’t it be Gary who leaves CBS? Why football gods, why?!?

    I love Verne Lundquist. I’m aware that many people don’t, but I absolutely love the man and I’ll miss him.

    Maybe they can atone for their sins. As the last time they called the game they turned a blind eye to the multiple unsportsmanlike conduct calls that weren’t called on Murray. They should be embarrassed and apologize.
    So you’ll have to forgive me if I don’t get all weepy about the two of those jokers.

  6. I love Uncle Verne but am looking forward to the best in the business for play by play in Brad Nessler. Gary Danielson can go jump in a lake for all I care.

    I wish Blackledge could have come with Nessler. They’re by far the best team, IMHO.

    I first remember Uncle Verne’s voice as a kid. He was the narrator for the VHS tape of the review of North Carolina’s 1993 national champion men’s basketball team. That voice has always stuck with me. It’s a good time for Verne to go, but he’ll be missed.

    As an aside, I’m also glad he was able to perform this role for CBS, out of the shadows of ESPN. To me, the CBS broadcast is my favorite broadcast – from production to camera work to direction – and I think it was the unique situation that he was the voice of not only an entire conference, but also an entire network for one a day week, that allowed him to thrive.

    See you in Steamboat, Uncle Verne.

    Some things that are still right about college football. Verne is one. Glad he’s making it back one more time. Hope we treat him to a memorable upset.
