    As soon as I hear and/or see Finebaum or Holtz I turn the channel or turn it off. The former is a douchebag muckraker and the latter is cheating ( I have first-hand knowledge) homer who couldn't analyze himself out of constipation.

    Who are the guys/gals that turn you off?

    Seriously, bringing political figures into this discussion says more about you than about the figure you purport to disdain. :roll:

    Me? I don't turn off anybody. If they're intelligent I find them interesting and if they're stupid I laugh at them. (Oh, and no need for proof Gatorologist, ample evidence of Holtz's cheating is just a Google search away).

    Agreed.

    For me its musberger and any female doing football. Actually.. I have no issue with most women announcers in any other sport ..It seems like the ones that do football for ESPN always sound like they are trying to sound like men. Can't stand it

    That's what the volume knob is for. College football never goes off.

    Gene Deckerhoff is the worst. Here's a typical Bucs call:
    First down Bucs, we head toward the pirate ship from our own 20, first and ten...Glennon takes the snap, looking...looking...puts it up...IT'S CAUGHT!!!!! IT'S CAUGHT!!!! Vincent Jackson goes up for a catch and the pro bowler helps out his rookie quarterback. How about that Bucs fans!!!!

    Okay, second and 9...

    Musberger, Verne Lundquist (especially when he goes all sloppy over an outstanding player) and Danielson gets on my nerves...

    Verne and Gary?!?

    GD is the best analyst in the game. Verne's voice is timeless. I love his enthusiasm and couldn't care less about his messing up names.
