    This is pretty good......I know he gets things mixed up - but that's half the fun of listening to his and Gary's gamecast.

    No matter how you feel about him.......you still have to appreciate this.... :)

    Noticed that during the game. Verne's silence was much better than Musberger's creepy old-man slobberfest during the MNC game.

    I used to despise the man because I thought he was biased.

    Then I listened to Mustardburger.......:cry:

    Me too. I used to dislike Vern until I listened to mustburger.
    Now I love listening to Vern and love catching his mistakes. It makes the telcast that much more fun for me (especially our games)
    Plus an optional drinking game.

    He's not a bad broadcaster actually.

    People ridicule the man but if they ever tried to do what he and/or other broadcasters do they would realize it is not easy!

    That was funny, I've always enjoyed and defended Verne. But give Gary some credit too for setting him up, GD is the best in the business at his position.

    Absolutely right. I am amazed at how many plays he can predict based on personnel and grouping (and not just the Gators)

    Not me. I have always loved Verne. He is probably my favorite announcer that is not Mick.

    I don't think he's biased. He's not the most informative but he's the most entertaining. I think him with Danielson is a combo I will fondly look back on one day.

    Video is deleted? What did he say?

    ...And add me to the "loves Verne and Gary" camp.

    The camera panned to AJ's g/f and mom and Verne commented on their presence and how they were waiting to see if Aj would come back out before the game ended (it was late in the 4th Qtr.). Then a short silent period, after which gary asked Verne "Is that all you have to say?"

    Then Verne said something to the effect "I'm not saying one more word - I'm not like that other station that goes by a 4 letter word."

    He said it better than me and of course there was the accompanied chuckling that made it that much more hilarious.

    I think CBS is removing the videos because they see it as something damaging to their rep and could also be a legal issue.

    It's from the TV broadcast of the LSU-Bama game. The camera is on McCarron's mom and Katherine Webb. Verne pointed out who they were, then said nothing else. Gary prompted him with something like "Is that all you have to say?" and Verne said "You're darn right! Discretion!" It was a shot at Brent Musberger.
