    RIP Keith Jackson

    The voice of college football for decades

    Keith Jackson, who was widely regarded as the voice of college football by several generations, died late Friday night, his family said. He was 89....

    He was credited with nicknaming the Rose Bowl "The Granddaddy of Them All" and Michigan's stadium "The Big House."

    RIP.

    2006 Rose Bowl was memorable and still the greatest college football game I've ever seen.

    But Keith Jackson had some great non college football moments.

    The Bucky Dent game. Yankees-Red Sox one game playoff in 1978.

    First play by play announcer for Monday Night Football

    Many Olympics memories

    The great announcers from my youth are gone or retired: Keith Jackson, Dick Enberg, Vin Scully (retired).
