    To paraphrase Lloyd Bentsen: "Mr Fowler, I've heard Keith Jackson, and you're no Keith Jackson."

    I loved listening to him.
    R.I.P. Keith Jackson.

    I thought Keith Jackson and Frank Broyles were the best ever.

    One of the best voices to ever call college football games!
    They have tried over and over to replace you but there will never be another Keith!

    Sad news. My memories of Mr. Jackson are mostly from his work at ABC Sports. From the Wide World of Sports to the Olympics to baseball and MNF he was a true professional.

    When I think CFB growing up, Jackson’s voice is up there. Hell, the guy coined “The Big House”. Pretty sad.
