    Honestly, much deserved but still depressing. Along with Spurrier, he was my childhood for sports. Going to miss that guy. People throw the phrase voice of a generation around, but really, for a lot of Gator fans, he really was, multiple generations.

    Isn't Gene the fsu announcer also retiring too?

    As much as I will miss his enthusiasm and Gator blood, I will not miss the constant "oh my!s" and some of his other favorites like " quarantined". They got old very quickly, and, even though Dick Enberg didn't mind, I always felt like it was wrong to use someone else's catch phrase.

    Man, I hope so. Never seen an announcer as biased as the fsu guy. He even says "we" when referring to anything the seminoles do.

    Wow! I'm shocked like everyone else and sad that I won't hear Mick's great play-by-play . . . but also happy he's leaving on his terms and for his own good reasons.

    He gave us some irreplaceable memories of some fantastic championships among a ton of other great games and I can only thank him.

    What a sad day.

    Mick is absolutely one of the best, and what an awesome way to go, No long drawn out ego trip retirement party.

    :(

    When I think voice of the Gators, the first two names that come to mind are Otis Boggs and Mick Hubert.

    Prattvile, AL-Go Lions!
    I hate to see him go, but when you reach a certain age you realize most of your life is behind you and the time left is family time. Thanks for sharing your time with us Mick.
