RIP Keith Jackson

Died last night; he was 89.

Some of my fondest memories of my dad involved Michigan Football and Keith Jackson. Nobody could call a game like he could.

He was also a Marine.

One of the greatest college football announcers ever in my opinion. RIP Mr. Jackson.

Beat me to it as well. I have fond memories of him calling Bama games. Whenever he was in Tuscaloosa he would always visit Dreamland BBQ, as any good ole southerner is inclined to do.

"and its intercepted by Teague..Teague to the end zone Touchdown!"

RIP Marine
