    That was such a miracle play. Franks was almost sacked.

    I agree with this. Didn't like him at all. They should have hired Larry Vettel who knew much more about sports and didn't scream while broadcasting. (He probably is a nice person; don't know)

    I thought no one would ever fill Otis Boggs' shoes. Now I don't think anyone will ever fill Mick's shoes. Thanks for the memories, Mick. We'll miss you.

    Looking ahead, just one word: Batesy.

    Yep. This one, the Grier-to-Callaway call against TN, and, the "Doering's got a touchdown..." calls stand out.

    Probably a stretch given limited experience. But he would be passionate. And could fill dead air with impersonations. upload_2022-5-19_15-48-12.jpeg

    Batesy would be a fantastic color man. I know he did some broadcasting for the Mountain West earlier in his career, but I don't know if he was in the play-by-play chair or not.

    And now Dooley is on WRUF lobbying for Jeff Cardozo as one of his three top replacements. Come on Pat! I get you are his buddy and Jeff does an outstanding job on Gators baseball play-by-play but his football and basketball calls, which BTW the job of Voice of the Gators entails, would in my estimation fall way short of the mark.

    Yep, all he had to do was get a first down and have Eddy kick a long FG. But, it worked and was dramatic. The Heave-to-Cleave was born on what the group around me called "Franksgiving."

    AND GREEN'S BEHIND THE DEFENSE!!!!
    Gotta be top two. Doering's got a touchdown might be the other.
