Excellent. I’ve been waiting for this.
Is it just me, or does Howard sound sick?

Yes, it was reported he was under the weather a bit.

That’s a shame. Biggest game of his career and he couldn’t enjoy it properly. I thought his call was much more restrained (and enjoyable as a result) but hate that he was sick.
He was apparently very sick.
I’m sorry… I simply cannot listen to Scott Howard. As I’ve been saying for years, I’m sure he’s a great guy and all, but we could do far far better.
The one clip I teed up was his Brock Bowers touchdown call, and that was about as flat, boring and anticlimactic as they come. On the flip side, I would actually take that over his typical over the top screaming with horribly cheesy catchphrases (“Chubby time!,” “dinner’s cooking!”, etc), so overall it was actually an improvement.
So you didn’t like his TD call because it was flat but you don’t like his other calls because they aren’t flat. Got it.
No, I specifically said his flat call was actually an improvement. It’s still sucked, mind you, because Scott Howard is not a good radio broadcaster… But yes it is an improvement over the normal screaming we get.
That really is my entire point – whether he’s screaming at the top of his lungs complete with cheesy catch phrases, or sounding like a despondent Alabama broadcaster on that Bowers TD, either way he’s terrible.
Apparently, you can’t be pleased. You won’t like the next guy either…
It seems like radio is a lost art. I had to listen to the first half of the UF game and the radio broadcast just wasn’t good. Too long to report on what happened. Not giving down and distance. There were several plays it would take him 30 seconds after the play ended to explain what happened.
There’s just not a lot of great radio guys anymore and that kind of makes sense in the TV age.
Thank you, Josh !

Yeah, Josh, you really are a gentleman and a scholar…I love these
I just noticed after the pick six Kirby helps Brice Young get up off the turf. Great sportsmanship in the middle of all that excitement.
Need to figure out a way to save this to my ‘puter, hmmm….
I can post a link on Google drive. It’s 2.5GBs so you’ll need good Internet

Thanks so much, Josh. This is terrific.
Ok. It’s 18 GBs. Lol
4K Video Downloader will snag this and stuff off YouTube.
I don’t know if Howard will ever get out from under the great shadow of Munson, (probably not, tough to follow a legend, just ask Ray Perkins),but he’s a homer and I never doubt he’s rooting as hard as me.
That being said, I thought his call on the Ringo pick six was about as pitch-perfect as we could hope for, especially since we’ll be hearing that call the rest of our lives.
Good job, Scott.
I love after the pick 6 when he said “A Ringo ate ya baby!” I was dying!
The ESPN mega cast actually has the entire game with our announcers. Yes I went back and watched it….and the coaches film room. Jimbo was very complimentary of Stetson’s performance, esp after his fumble
I do not like the way they shrink the screen down on the “Hometown Radio” broadcasts…I’m assuming it’s to drive traffic to the main channel…
Zier wasn’t too excited about the officiating either.
Nice touch: Bennett “Fumble” 1.47.33.
That’s nice, but what I’d really like is a sync up the game with Donnan.
