I appreciate our broadcast crew even more after hearing some from other schools.

I think he has improved a good bit. I used to be a critic, but I think I was wrong. Good to have a consistent voice which does FB, MBB and some Baseball and Softball.

I do enjoy Pete’s games too. Everything sounds better when you’re winning I suppose. Plus, working with the legend Tim Bourrett is a boost to any broadcast.

I do not like any of them. Oscar Robbins was the best. Anyone remember him ?


Re: Don Munson is horrible. Yep the Big O

Great guard played at Cincy in the 60's right?

When I was finally able to get near a radio and turn the baseball game on today, it was deep in the game. I listened to the Tigers hold USuC to no runs in the Top of the inning but never heard a score from Don. They finished the half inning and actually never announced the score. It was after returning from several commercials and a pitch or two in to the bottom half that he decided to say the current score. He is terrible.

Munson wasn't calling the game today. It was Qualkinbush.

Good old Jim, I enjoyed listening to him back when many games were not on TV, he has a so many verbal clues..."he spilled him", "he rode him down", "he upended him", one could understand how the play happened listening to him.

JIm Phillips could paint a picture with words. Th coot announcer Bob Fulton was also good and honored Phillips by calling a few plays for Clemson after JP passed away. Today’s radio guys just aren’t very good. Probably my favorite after Phillips was Larry Munson at Georgia.


The old school announcer knew nothing but radio

as a training ground. Older guys like Fulton actually called baseball games off a ticker. Radio was the prime medium for sports and the ability to help the listener "see" the action a prerequisite. Most announcers today are TV guys first. There is simply a huge difference between calling a game where people can see the action, and one where they can't. The money is in TV, so that's how most guys seek opportunities.

Being the radio PBP guy for a college does not carry near the cache it used to.

Ridden down at the 10 yard line......


Someone needs to tell Don to stop with the sniffling/snorting he does ALL GAME LONG.

If the guy has allergies, I’m sorry and feel bad for him, but please get some medication. Or blow your nose. Just go ahead and end it!

I think Qualk and Munson do a great job!


Posted: Mar 2, 2020, 2:58 AM
 

I enjoy listening to both of them. Their play by play makes me feel like I am there at the game when I cannot attend.

I absolutely refuse to listen to him call a football game. Can’t do it.

Don Munson thinks you’re awful!!
I think Don Munson does a fine job!
I also know who Don Munson is...

I’m not gonna get into announcing mistakes and phrases and all that. But the shear sound of his voice drives me up the wall. To me it sounds like he is talking out of his nose. He is probably a great guy and fun to be around. But as somebody that makes a living based on using his voice I’m not a fan. I’m not saying he should be fired because I don’t have a say in that and my opinion means absolutely nothing. I just choose to rarely listen. If I can’t watch something on tv more times than not I’ll check the game thread on the message bored here and just refresh that thread.

I know many on TNET don't like him, but I think because of his knowledge of the game of baseball that Qualk is far and away the best play by play guy baseball games.

He and Bob Mahoney were great late in the game yesterday!


Qualkencoot is just as bad..
