talking over Eli??? I didn't personally because I think Eli (or his spotters) mess up quite frequently....I like to hear that enthusiasm. Fnebaum was giving him hell Monday about it on his show when he kept playing all 3 broadcasts of the TD.
Yeah, a little. The "YESSSSSSS" kind of tainted the call in my eyes. Maybe we can edit that out for future generations (g)
With that said, we can all relate to the raw emotion of that moment and honestly, I didn't have much control over my body or what came out of my mouth at that moment either.
He did better than I would. The Crimson Tide Radio Network would have received a hefty fine because I would have probably gone Blake Sims on them
I mean, I guess it would sound better if he wouldn't have...but..I don't care...
I'll take the play!
No probably at all
That was my favorite part of the audio, hearing that raw emotion and excitement.
I dont have problem, but in the field of broadcasting, no lead announcer wants to have a potential signature call like this overran with what folks call in the broadcast field, "stepping on" the call. Color guys arent supposed to get in the way but moments like this can be slightly uncontrollable so I will give PS a pass. Who was it that ran over John Forney in '85 Tiffin IB kick? (Layton maybe?) It worked there, but to answer the OP...No problem at all as a fan. But if I was in the broadcasting field or a colleague of them I would have to say it was butchered and stepped on and I would bet the house that Eli and producers brought it up to PS and exchanged words of wisdom. No doubt Phil got a ear full.
All will be forgiven

Kenny Stabler says hello...
No I am saying Forney was the lead announcer. His color guy ran over him a bit.
The call reminded me of Forney's call of Stabler's run in the mud in 67.
I loved it. Eli would not have told us he scored for another 30 seconds.Kidding, but the true emotion is great.

paul kennedy called the tiffin kick. i was listening to the call saturday and thought it was great! the pure , raw emotion of being in the moment. i dont think he tried to talk over eli at all. his coment,"make one man miss" as t.j. is running to glory painted a picture that along with elis usually painted a picture television could not have come close to. really somebody really needs to find something legitimate to complain about and this is not it!
Choose not a life of limitation
He was great. Loved the emotion. When he said "YES!!!!!", sounded like he was having a ErlGasHim!!!

The "YESSSS!!!", was authentic and awesome IMO. Love it by Savage!

It wasn't John Forney who made the call. It was Paul Kennedy and Doug Layton, who went back and forth "It's Good"...
Yes it was, my mistake.
Who was on the call with Eli when we blocked the kick at Penn St? That was no different when he said "he blocked it Eli!". Sometimes the extra voice in the booth is the greatest part of it.
I thought it was great.
