A few new faces make an appearance in this week’s Straight Outta Stockton awards including some national college football announcers that ply their trade on local broadcasts. Living in Ohio, it’s nice to see Bengals radio analyst Dave Lapham make an appearance. After watching much of GB/SD, Brian Billick could safely fill out this entire list, but nevertheless he leads this week’s Dickies with three nominees.
For the Straight Outta Stockton vote, each week we’ll nominate 15-20 quotes for you to pick the best 10. The winning quote of the week will earn that person 10 points all the way down to 1 point for 10th. Remember, you can vote for your favorite five quotes. Here are your Week 9 nominees…
