The late John Forney was probably one of the best football announcers ever. He called the games on radio for the University of Alabama Crimson Tide. Eli Gold has the job now, and he's good, but John Forney and his color commentator, Doug Layton, were great.
When Forney called a game, you could see it in your mind.
I have friends who watch their teams on television with the sound off and the radio on because they can't stand the way the network announcers call the football games. Keith Jackson, formerly of ABC Sports was the exception. Hearing Jackson call a game was always good.
