For the past four decades, Saturday afternoons in the fall has meant the soothing voice of Keith Jackson. Who would have thought that this graudate of Washington State would become as synonomous with college football as Bear Bryant, the Four Horsemen and Amos Alonzo Stagg? But Jackson is THE VOICE of college football, and when he leaves for good, it will be a sad, sad day for all football fans.
He is also an immensely diverse broadcaster. Keith has done so many other sports--MLB, NBA, the Olympics, Wide World of Sports--and has done a tremendous job with all of them. But this man is, was and always will be, Mr. College Football. There never has been or never will be another one like him.
