With LSU-Alabama now in the rearview mirror, the real college football championship that everyone cares about can take centerstage – the Pammies! With the huge CBS primetime game, both Gary Danielson and Verne Lundquist feature prominently in today’s list. Kirk Herbstreit also earns 1000 unofficial bonus points for placing the KIRK HERBSTREIT EARTHQUAKE FACE on the Mount Rushmore of epic all-time sports faces.
