What an amazing first weekend of football. And when there’s awesome football, there’s usually awful announcing.  Excuse the tardy Pammies, but the long weekend crept into this week and pushed things back a bit.
(For future reference, make sure you vote up comments you like. I don’t care much for the vote down option (unless it’s to put trolls in their place), so don’t bother with that unless you really, really hate somebody’s contribution).
Without further ado… the envelopes, please:
10. “Samford? Samford and Son, Labor Day Weekend.” — Desmond Howard (via Sctvman)
9.  “Take him to the shower and see if he has a rasberry on his knee.” — Craig James (via Dazzle)
8.  “Looking at Kyle Padron, a guy who hasn’t been able to play the last couple of games of the ballgame.” — Mark Jones (via JFein)
7.  “Disorder, confusion, chaos. They do it all.” — Joe Beninati on Utah fans.  Note: At the end of the 1st half he similarly used three synonyms to describe Utah’s first half effort.
6.  “Dion Lewis is getting up inside of his backside.” — Kelly Stouffer
5.  “Who’ll get the first crack at sudden victory?” — Joe Beninati before Thursday night’s overtime game between Utah/Pitt. (via Rick James Bible Owner)


4.   “I disagree. It creates a frenzied atmosphere even more so. I think it works to Hawaii’s advantage. Granted, it took away a TD, there’s a frenzy created in this stadium. Granted, they lost four points there, maybe.” — Bob Davie, utterly incomprehensible, disagreeing with Mark Jones in that it hurt Hawaii to lose a TD at the end of the 1st half.

3.  “That guy, right there, Denard Robinson…” — Matt Millen, as the camera shows a shot of DB JT Floyd (via Rick James Bible Owner)


2.  “It is unexcusable.” — Andre Ware (via Sctvman)
