Remarkable. Gotta find a place where he used “bottom”, classic John Ward.

My twins are too young to have listened to JW call games. I’ll have to did out the cassette player and play the NC game my oldest recorded for me.

Remarkable.

Go Vols!

One of my favorites would be when Ward would troll a bit, especially when he knew the game was on TV. For example someone would be shooting a free throw and it would rattle around and finally go in, and Ward would say "Nothing but the bottom of the net!"

I wasn’t prepared to weep at 6 in the morning, but here we are.

What if John Ward called a game for our #1 Vols? Watch this video with audio.

Wow! Fire Bob and hire whoever made this video. There's got to be someone who does impressions or "voice overs" who could do John's voice for a dub over of the rest of the players names. With John Ward you didn't need to the see game for the images. He gave it all the color needed to be there court side or in Neyland. The true GOAT.

I have to admit that “ money “ is one of the things that keeps me listening to the vol network. Burt saved us on the basketball side of the broadcast. GBO !!
I find the "money" call to be annoying. I had to listen to the Alabama game on the radio since I was traveling and hearing "money!!" all the time drove me nuts.

He only says it for 3s so it not like it’s on every play.

I enjoy Bert enough to listen even when Im able to watch. He gets excited and makes the game sound interesting. Bob shows more emotion for b-ball too.

I can’t stand the TV announcers.
