    1. Where did find this because someone said that him being at the PAC 12 & B1G titles but he wasn't so unless there is something to back it up it's false

      Delete
  5. How come Musburger isn't announcing the Rose Bowl?

    Replies
    1. Cuz he isn't the main announcer anymore

      Delete
    2. I'm aware, but he announced it last year. I think he should've been assigned to it.

      Delete
  6. Curious, why is Brad Nessler calling the Sunbowl on CBS instead of Verne Lundquist? I figured that would be the last football game he calls

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Verne has said that the Army Navy Game is favorite thing to in the years he's been in broadcasting so I would think that's why he's not doing the Sun Bowl

      Delete
    2. Verne isn't retiring he's just spending more time at home

      Delete
    3. He's retired from calling college football he will still call college basketball on CBS & the NCAA Tournament along with Golf coverage

      Delete
    4. Verne Lundquist is not scheduled to call NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament this season.

      Delete
  7. Golf coverage means The Masters that's in April
