RIP Keith Jackson

My favorite person who has ever called a Michigan football game. Whoa Nellie!

There's nobody out there that can fill his shoes. He was THE GUY. If it's important and it's football, it has to be said in his voice.

Same sentiment for me as many ...iconic voice and part of creating the passion in me for college football and sports. Some of the things I will never forget about him, moreso than "Whoa, Nellie!" or the Desmond PR TD are --


* His calling the USC/UCLA game every year and associating him with the Rose Bowl
* The entire 1997 National Championship season where he and Bob Griese called, it seemed, every Michigan game including the Rose Bowl with Brian winning the title ..
* Steve Breaston's debut in what would become called the "Wildcat" and Jackson's description of him, "...whooooa, he's just a baby!" referring to the Freshman speedster..

* The way he pronounced players' hometowns and especially places like "Rancho Cucamunga"

* A game from probably '83-84 while a 10-11yr old living in Evanston, IL and having the ABC TV coverage panning over Michigan Stadium and hearing him say welcome to "Ann Arbor, Michigan" and [ME!] wondering why the town was named Ann Arbor ....
