This Auburn radio call was the highlight of the weekend

Auburn beat Georgia over the weekend in one of the most improbable finishes in sports this season.  Trailing 38-37 with half a minute left and facing a 4th & 18, Auburn QB Nick Marshall flinged the ball downfield where it was tipped by the Georgia defense into the waiting arms of Ricardo Louis.

When you're the home broadcast team and you see a miraculous finish unfold before your eyes it's hard to have a "bad" call.  You're naturally going to lose your mind and unless you're physically unable to speak or you start blurting out wrong names, it's going to be memorable.  That was certainly the case in the Auburn radio booth, where announcer Rod Bramblett provided a call for the ages.  He seemed more on top of than most though, totally grasping the gravity of the play and immediately calling it the miracle at Jordan-Hare.

UPDATE: And via The War Eagle Reader here's the agony of defeat call from the Georgia radio booth…
