The word "Legend" doesn't come close to accurately describing this man and how he made College Football games great.

Yep. Makes me sad and feel old. Keith and Lindsey Nelson were always my favorites. They just seemed like regular guys calling a game...

His voice was a part of the whole great football weekend experience - along with my Dad bringing wood in for a fire and the leaves gathering on the ground and the bands playing at the games - RIP Keith

I got a kick out of hearing Keith call the 1979 World Series with Cosell on the dvs of the series. Cosell would always try to upstage him but Keith kept his cool the entire time. Great stuff. RIP a Legend.
