    Nessler and Gary will be fantastic. I'll miss Verne though.

    Verne doesn't even know who is on the field half the time.

    They probably should have replaced Verne when he died...

    They offered him a retirement package of one bottle of Svedka every day for the rest of his life

    That's gonna put him in the hole a few gallons per day. Hope he invested wisely.

    Verne is awful but I will miss him when he leaves. The mistakes and other quirks make him unique kind of a long running joke

    He's so pickled it would take weeks before he started decomposing.

    Even when he was basically sober, or sober for him, he didn't know the first thing about the damn sport. How do you get paid to be a football broadcaster for 40 years and not even understand the simple things like formations?

    Nessler is a thousand times better.

    Now if CBS cans Danielson and hires Spielman that'll make my day.

    So what's Verne going to do now? Color commentary at weddings? "You know, that dress is shocking. Shocking I tell you. Those bridesmaids could be on a runway to guide in flights from Acapulco. You know, I went there on vacation once. They had a bar actually IN the pool. Didn't have to clean up spills, they just floated away, but you could still get some of it with your straw before it was gone. Speaking of which, has the bar opened up here at the reception hall yet?"

    So let me get this straight. Here's a 75 year old fat white guy who gets paid good money to go to all the big SEC games, get drunk, eat all the chicken wings he wants, and pass gas all night in a Hilton hotel suite and we think he's stupid?
