Not sure if there’s already a thread about this. Haven’t seen one, apologies if there is. Was just curious to see who everyone’s favorite commentator is/was. Mine has to be Brad Nessler, dude is flat out funny.

    Mike Tirico, paints the best picture ever... could be looking away and get just as good of a visual.

    Guarantee that if people say Tuberville or Danielson right now they’ll probably get a downvote... lol

    Agreed. I used to like Mussburger, but he and now even Joe Tessitore seem to be a little over the top. Like they think each of their comments are gonna go down as some of the all time great calls.

    Favorite for me was Lundquist, in spite of the guy next to him.
    Don't have a clear favorite currently, but I've become increasingly impressed with McElroy as a commentator. He seems to be the most unbiased one out there. A little boring on the ESPN shows for me, but calls the games well. Would also agree with Tirico being a special talent as a commentator.

    They get annoying like a toned down, football version of Dick Vitale... again, not quite as bad.

    They want to be on the highlight reel 50 years from now. Lol

    You guys nailed it with Mussburger/Tessitore/Vitale. Really comes off as pathetic really at this point.

    Was just rewatching the Miss State game, and the flea flicker call where Tessitore goes “guess which Dawgs are barking first” was a little much. I loved the play and the results, the commentating not so much.

    Listening to Tuberville is like what I imagine standing next to a jet engine that sounds like Fran Drescher’s laugh would be like.

    Good call, forgot about her. Either, or.

    I really enjoy Jordan Rogers. He honestly does a great job and very rarely gets things wrong. Also he provides the best perspective of today’s game since he just left the game.

    Tubberville= Vern to me. Couldn’t tolerate either. Gary can go ahead and get on his knees and praise Bama.

    Huard and McElroy are both pretty good.

    I'm glad you brought that up. At the time I was thinking, "He wrote that line last Tuesday and rehearsed it way too many times."

    He then yelled, "UGA, GET AFTER IT!" or something like that.

    If we're allowed to color outside of the lines here (since the title of this thread doesn't specify "college football'), my favorite commentator in all of sports right now -- and maybe all-time -- is Doc Emrick. Nobody in the sports broadcasting biz today can touch him.

    GOAT: LARRY MUNSON! Even if he was a homer, he was magical.
    Current: Football: Jesse Palmer.
    Golf: Nick Faldo.
