“Maybe I’ll be Cousin Ness or something?”

Brad Nessler hasn’t called his first SEC on CBS game with Gary Danielson yet, but he’s already getting off on the right foot in my book.

Nessler also gets to check a couple boxes on his play-by-play wish list that are still open. He has never announced a Florida-Georgia game, the annual rivalry played in Jacksonville and nicknamed the World’s Largest Outdoor Cocktail Party.

Let’s hope the Dawgs can give him a good game to call.

    Funny that we’ve gone from the school instructing announcers not to use the nickname to a couple of schools exploring alcohol sales at games.

    From your keyboard to the Man Upstairs’ ears …

    I have always liked Nessler. He will do a good job filling in for Uncle Verne

    I remember the feeling I had during and after the Blackout game with Bama in 2008. I realized then that the Richt era had ended and the Saban era had started. I bring that up because that is what we need in Jax. We need a beatdown game. We need to show that the 27 year Gator era has ended and the Dawgs are back. Can one game do this? It would have to be a massacre. I hope we are capable.

      We’re due. We haven’t put a beating on Florida since 1997. The 2007 game was still in question toward the end. We’ve certainly taken a few beatings since 1997. It would be nice to be able to relax and enjoy the 4th quarter for once.


  5. Go Dawgs!

    Uh, that’s the “Georgia-Florida” game, USA Today.

    First of all, it’s the Georgia-Florida game. Get it right.

    And I expect that Nessie will see us put a beat down on the Gators this year.

    Hmmmm…maybe this streak has all been Uncle Vern’s fault?

    If anyone is looking for a sneak peak, I think Brad and Gary called the Mizzou-Ark game last year. I’m pretty sure I remember noticing that during last week when the SECN showed that game as one of their days.
